Ivan Perisic could be used at right wingback for Inter if Denzel Dumfries is sold in the summer, amid interest in the Dutchman from Bayern Munich.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who claim that the Nerazzurri would use the 33-year-old’s versatility to fill in the slot on the right in the event that Dumfries is sold.

Dumfries’s form this season has meant that he has started to attract significant transfer interest, with the German champions particularly keen on his signature.

The 26-year-old could be seen as the most expendable of the big name players by the Nerazzurri, who will have to bring in cash this summer with a major sale.

In the event that Dumfries departs, Perisic could be used as a stopgap solution given that the Croat’s versatility and two-footedness mean that he can play on the right, while Robin Gosens would then become the main starter on the left.
