Everton must revive their interest in Denzel Dumfries

Everton could be presented with another opportunity to sign defender Denzel Dumfries after his move to Inter has proved far from successful.

What’s the story?

According to The Athletic, the 25-year-old has long been admired by the Toffees’ director of football and compatriot Marcel Brands and was high up on the club’s wishlist during the previous transfer window.

However, Dumfries ended up joining the Nerazzurri from PSV Eindhoven via a deal potentially rising to £12.5m as they sought to replace Achraf Hakimi at right-back.

The Netherlands international has been unable to find his best form at San Siro, though, making just two Serie A starts under Simone Inzaghi, leading to speculation that an imminent exit could be on the cards.

And Italian outlet Calciomercato have now claimed that Inter are weighing up whether to send Dumfries out on loan in the January window as he finds himself behind Matteo Darmian in the pecking order.

Would Dumfries be a good signing?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

Everton must revive their interest

Dumfries burst onto the scene over the summer after impressing for the Oranje despite their struggles at the European Championship, putting in a string of impressive displays for his nation, scoring two goals and providing one assist in just four appearances.

His excellent showing caught the eye of several onlookers, including former Hull City midfielder David Meyler, who took to Twitter to hail the right-sided defender as “unbelievable” during the tournament.

Former Everton attacker Marcus Bent also lauded the Dutchman, labelling him a “terrific” talent, and hailed his pace during Euro 2020, while claiming fans would have delighted if he came through the Goodison Park entrance.

What year did Everton wear this home strip?

He told Football FanCast: “Speaking to Everton, they said he’s a terrific player, but clubs don’t sell their players when the Euros are on because they can put x number of pounds onto their player. Terrific, quick, pacey, he’s a rocket.”

With Dumfries now believed to be back on the market, Everton must revive their interest in the £26m-rated gem, purchasing the ideal heil to Seamus Coleman.

The Irishman has been a magnificent servant to the Merseyside outfit for many years now, but at 33, he is entering the twilight years of his career. Meanwhile, current backup Jonjoe Kenny doesn’t appear to be at the required standard to take over the mantle.

His attacking ability, eye for a pass and concentration are all assets that would make him an ideal acquisition for the Merseyside outfit, and Benitez’s charges would surely benefit from his arrival over the winter.

So Toffees chief Brands must look to revive his interest during the January transfer window.
