Powerful star OFFICIALLY speaks out about Chelsea rumours

Denzel Dumfries admits he is touched by rumours linking him to Chelsea, but he is currently focused on his life at Inter Milan.

Reece James picked up a serious injury earlier in the season that has kept him out for a while now – and also kept him out of impressing at the World Cup with England.

He may be getting better and returning to action soon – but his departure has shown Graham Potter that he needs to delve into that transfer kitty and add another right-sided defender to the squad.

Dumfries is a player that we have been eyeing up for some time – but have never made an official offer – but after seeing him impress at the World Cup –  and according to reports on Goal – the club are determined to sign the defender

The right-back put in a stellar performance in the Netherlands’ last-16 victory over the USA, scoring once and setting up two more in a 3-1 victory – and When asked about being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, Dumfries said: “Of course it’s a compliment.

“But when you put the Nerazzurri shirt on that is also a big compliment.

“I’m focused on the national team and I play for a very, very beautiful club in Italy. I’m very proud that I can play for Inter so I am focused on nothing else but the national team and Inter.”

The Dutchman is a starter – he is a player that will want to play every-game and that could cause issues.

James is one of the best wing-backs in the game, so we should be looking to sign a player that will provide him good competition – be a good back-up but also be ready to sit on the bench and be happy.
