PSV’s Denzel Dumfries remains a serious target for the Nerazzurri, but for now he is still highly unlikely to join due to economic factors.
This according to PSV observer Rik Elfrink, who explained to the program “De Oranjezomer” on Dutch broadcaster Veronica, reported via FCInterNews, that the 25-year-old will cost no less than €15-20 million and that no offers have come in that would convince his current club to let him go.
As Elfrink explains, the Dutchman is hoping for a move and the Eindhoven-based club are willing to listen to offers, with the player currently preparing for a move to a new club rather than a stay with his current side, but there is an understanding that remaining in Eindhoven would also be a possibility.
The Nerazzurri are thought to be among the 25-year-old’s main suitors, alongside English club Everton, but the economic terms of signing him this summer could prove prohibitive.
“They’ve wanted him for a long time,” says Elfrink about Inter and Everton, “but now it’s impossible for all the known reasons.”
Elfrink clarifies that while the Dutchman is not currently set to return to training and not involved in Champions League qualifiers with his current club, a stay this summer could still be possible.
“There is no disagreement. Just that he is not participating in the matches for the moment, so PSV is taking a risk.”
“I heard something from the journalist Valentijn Driessen,” he continued, “but I don’t even know if he saw the contract. He will be allowed to leave for somewhere between €15-20 million.”
