Inter Milan are ready to reignite their interest in Atalanta wingback Emil Holm should Denzel Dumfries not extend his contract.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper reports that contract talks with Dumfries are currently hanging in the balance.

At the moment, the situation on Inter’s right flank is very much dependent on the outcome of contract talks with Dumfries.

The Dutchman’s current deal with Inter runs out at the end of next June.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri’s stance is clear.

Inter want Dumfries to put pen to paper on a new contract before the summer transfer window. Otherwise, they plan to try and sell the 28-year-old former PSV wingback.

So far, Inter’s offer for a new contract for Dumfries stands at around €4 million net per season plus add-ons.

That is more or less a take-it-or-leave-it offer from the Nerazzurri.

And at the moment, Dumfries and his representatives have yet to give Inter a clear response.

Inter Could Reignite Emil Holm Chase Should Dumfries Not Extend

Inter are therefore keeping their options open for if the contract extension talks with Dumfries fall through.

The Nerazzurri would be ready to sign a like-for-like replacement at right-wingback.

The Gazzetta note that two prospective targets would be Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fiorentina’s Michael Kayode.

But another name near the top of Inter’s list is Sweden international Holm.

Holm is currently on loan at Atalanta from Spezia. However, La Dea have a purchase option to sign the 23-year-old this summer.

Holm has a similar profile to Dumfries – he is a right-footed, physical and explosive player who looks very much at home up and down the right flank.

Therefore, Inter see Holm as being an ideal direct replacement in their system.

Inter could accordingly be ready to move should they end up selling Dumfries.
