Two Premier League teams are in the hunt for Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries this summer. This is according to the various reports in the Italian media. It has been revealed that it could take around €40m to sign Dutchman Dumfries from Italian football side Inter Milan.


Italian football giants Inter Milan are keen to balance the books and they were hoping to make this happen with the sale of Slovakian national team central defender Milan Skriniar, but PSG have not been able to meet the €80m asking price for the player. Skriniar has been linked with Premier League teams Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Chelsea in the past transfer windows. However, PSG are the only team in the running for the Slovakia international. Skriniar is likely to stay at Italian football club Inter Milan after the immediate past Italian Serie A champions lost out to Juventus in the race to sign Brazilian player Gleison Bremer from Torino.
