Leicester City’s Timothy Castagne and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Odriozola look to be the two main names on Inter’s list of possible replacements for Denzel Dumfries should the Dutchman be sold to Chelsea.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri’s search for a possible replacement for Dumfries in the event that he leaves looks to have been narrowed down.
Chelsea’s interest in Dumfries still has not disappeared, and should the Blues make a late push to sign the 26-year-old it cannot be ruled out that he could be on his way in the final couple weeks of the transfer window.
If Dumfries were to leave, Inter would then move to sign a like-for-like replacement for the Dutchman on the right, and in this respect Castagne and Odriozola fit the profile.
Castagne could be tough to sign given that the former Atalanta wingback is still important for Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers’s plans, whilst Odriozola is not in the plans in the Spanish capital but earns €3.5 million net per season which could be a stumbling block.
