Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham will all reportedly attempt to sign Inter defender Denzel Dumfries after his stellar World Cup performances for the Netherlands.
Dumfries, 26, played in all five of his country’s World Cup fixtures, highlighted by a stunning display against the United States in the last 16 where he scored one and assisted two in a 3-1 win.
The marauding right-back has played in all 15 of Inter’s Serie A outings this season, making 13 starts, although he has only produced a full 90 minutes on four occasions.
Despite the Italian side rejecting all bids for Dumfries in the previous transfer window, he is said to no longer be viewed as indispensable, and could be pried away for a fee of €60million.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are willing to accept a €60m (£53m) fee, although it remains to be seen if the amount of interest drives that price up even further.
Chelsea reportedly view Dumfries as the answer to their depth issues at right-back while Reece James battles injuries, as well as being able to play as part of a back-three.
United believe he can replace Diogo Dalot, and Tottenham feel he is a superior option to Sporting’s Pedro Porro, who they had been reportedly close to securing on a €35m (£31m) deal, per the Daily Star.
