Inter must work to get Denzel Dumfries back on the pitch and playing at his best if they are to have any hope on cashing in on him for a big fee.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who argue that the Nerazzurri’s plan to sell the Dutchman for a significant fee in the summer to meet financial goals could be compromised if he stays out of form.

Dumfries looks to clearly be the player who Inter have earmarked for a summer sale, as the club will need to offload at least one big name player in order to meet the target of a net transfer profit before the end of the fiscal year.

The 26-year-old’s performances at the World Cup led to a surge in transfer interest, and the Nerazzurri had felt that they could ask for a big fee amid interest from teams in the Premier League in particular.

However, over the month of January Dumfries has not featured frequently, whilst one of his most prominent suitors in the form of Chelsea have opted to move for Lyon’s Malo Gusto on the right instead of Skriniar.

Accordingly, time may be running out for the Nerazzurri if they want to get a big fee for Dumfries as per their plan, and they could be forced into selling an additional player.
