The future of Denzel Dumfries at Inter Milan remains a jigsaw that the club must solve in the coming months.

The 27-year-old has been plying his trade with the Nerazzurri since the summer of 2021. But with his contract expiring in 2025, his time at the club could reach a conclusion in the next few months.

The management hasn’t been able to make significant progress in the renewal talks with the player’s entourage.

So according to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInter1908, Dumfries’ fate remains a complex issue that must be solved in order to lay plans for the summer transfer market.

As the source explains, the 27-year-old always had his highs and lows since joining the club. For instance, he enjoyed a thrilling start to the season. However, he’s now serving as a backup to Matteo Darmian since returning from injury.

The Roman newspaper insists that Inter will be definitely looking to sell the Dutchman if he doesn’t renew his contract. The club has no plans to allow him to leave for free a year later.

However, the report wonders if the Nerazzurri would have to reinvest the transfer fee they receive on a replacement. This would be the case if the management and Simone Inzaghi decide that Darmian and Tajon Buchanan aren’t enough to cover the right flank.

If  Inter must sign a replacement, then Dumfries’ sale wouldn’t truly help the club raise funds to bolster other departments (by singing the likes of Alessandro Buongiorno and Albert Gudmundsson).

Yet, this sale remains mandatory, as keeping a player who’s running on an expiring contract wouldn’t make any sense.

In the meantime, the 27-year-old will be gunning to regain his starting berth. He’ll be particularly eager to get the nod in the Milan Derby where he had often produced the goods.
