The Truth: Become a Celebrity

The 26-year-old was a bit of a latecomer to Europe’s elite scene after spending the early stages of a professional career at Sparta Rotterdam and SC Heerenveen.

However, after a move to Eredivisie giants PSV Eindhoven in 2018, the marauding full-back started to attract attention.

Having developed a budding reputation on the national and international scene, Dumfries moved to Inter Milan in 2021 and now another move could be on the horizon…

The latest: Spurs in the mix

According to Tuttosport, translated by SW, Tottenham and Bayern Munich have ‘already informed’ Inter Milan of their interest.

The 32-cap Dutch ace is claimed to have ‘caught the eye’ of Antonio Conte and landed pivot Fabio Paratici as the Italian duo try to bolster the N17 squad.

Additionally, the report says offers in the range of €35-40m (£29-33.5m) for the man once described as a ‘rocket’ by Marcus Bent would ‘likely be accepted’ “.

The verdict: replacing Doherty?

Despite Matt Doherty’s recent re-emergence before suffering a season-ending knee injury, Conte is likely to enter the transfer market to find the perfect fit to fit into the right-back role at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. .

Both Emerson and Doherty tried their hand in the role, but with strong passing, aerial ability and focus (WhoScored), plus the stamina and experience to withstand the demands, stylistically Dumfries has all the hallmarks of a perfect candidate to bolster the ranks of the Lilywhites.

This season, the Dutchman has directly contributed to 11 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions while helping the Nerazzurri to keep 20 clean sheets and should be considered a high priority signing.
