Real Madrid are reportedly pondering a possible swoop of 25-year-old Dutch right-back Denzel Dumfries, to bolster their defensive unit.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Denzel Dumfries is the subject of interest from Real Madrid over a move in a future transfer window. The 25-year-old Dutch international has been on the wishlist of Carlo Ancelotti ever since his days at Everton, who were heavily linked with him before his switch to Inter Milan.
Denzel Dumfries joined Inter Milan from PSV Eindhoven this past summer following a productive three-year stint with the Dutch giants. The switch to the Serie A champions appears to be working well so far, as the 25-year-old seems to have instantly established himself as a viable replacement for Achraf Hakimi, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in the same window.
So far at Inter, Dumfries has made four appearances and has already even delivered his first assist in a Serie A outing against Bologna this past weekend. His continued progress at San Siro seems to have kept one of his long-term admirers glued on to him, with Carlo Ancelotti keen on bringing him to Real Madrid.
In fact, Ancelotti has had his sights set on Dumfries ever since his days at Everton, who had been heavily linked with the Dutch full-back before his move to Inter Milan. Ancelotti, though, continues to be keenly monitoring his progress and now wants him onboard at Real Madrid.
The interest in Dumfries makes a world of sense as well, considering Dani Carvajal’s injury woes are worsening with every fresh fitness issue. The latest of his injuries cropped up this past weekend in a La Liga meeting with Valencia, with a fresh spell on the sidelines beckoning for him.
While Lucas Vazquez has proven to be a viable option as a right-back, the Spaniard is set enter his thirties soon, meaning a right-back could rightly be on Real Madrid’s agenda. To that end, Dumfries is an option worth considering for the Merengues.
