Thomas Tuchel recalls Chelsea star player back to Stamford Bridge as Aston Villa hijack Digne's transfer deal

According to Denzel Dumfries, a wingback for the Netherlands national team, the transfer rumors that suggest he could join Chelsea have been described as a “compliment.”

During the summer of 2016, the name of the Inter Milan defender was frequently mentioned in connection with a transfer to the Premier League. However, Manchester United and other clubs were also rumored to be considering a move for him.

When Chelsea attempted to include the Dutchman in Inter’s deal to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the San Siro Stadium, the Nerazzurri declined to give their approval for a swap deal involving the two teams.

However, despite Chelsea’s failure to sign Dumfries, who is now 26 years old, rumors continue to circulate that the club is interested in acquiring his services.

The defender admitted that he was flattered by Chelsea’s interest but refrained from getting involved in the rumors after helping his team advance to the quarterfinals of the World Cup with an outstanding performance following their 3-1 victory over the United States. The match against the United States was won by his team by a score of 3-1.

It goes without saying that this is a complement. Dumfries provided a response to The Athletic when the publication inquired about his connections to Chelsea.

“On the other hand, donning a Nerazzurri shirt is regarded as a huge compliment. Although I am a member of an extremely prestigious club in Italy, my current focus is on contributing to the success of my country’s national team.

Only the national team and Inter are getting my full attention right now because it still does not feel real to me that I get to play for Inter.

In the match between the Netherlands and the United States, Dumfries was the standout performer for the Dutch team, making the difference between the two squads with two assists and one goal of his own.

The Dutchman moved to the Italian giants at the beginning of the 2021–2022 season after spending his previous four seasons with the Eredivisie team PSV Eindhoven. He has played in 65 games and has seven goals and ten assists to his name.

In the current campaign, he has played 15 times for Simone Inzaghi’s squad across all competitions, during which time he has contributed one goal and three assists.

As a result of the injury sustained by Reece James, Graham Potter’s Chelsea team will look to acquire a right back during the winter transfer window. If Dumfries continues to perform exceptionally well in the World Cup, Chelsea may think about bringing him back to the club.
