AC Milan look set to address a problem area this summer as they are ready to step up interest in PSV Eindhoven star Denzel Dumfries, a report claims.
The right-back spot has been a huge problem for the Rossoneri all season as the current two options – Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti – have struggled to hold down their position in the starting XI due to poor form, suspensions and injuries.
It is an area that Milan are looking to address, and Calciomercato.com examines a possible one-in one-out situation for Milan this summer.
They report that Calabria is wanted by Bologna and Fiorentina, and given that his sale would generate a pure capital gain, it could finance the hunt for his replacement.
Dumfries, the 24-year-old Dutch international currently at PSV Eindhoven, is the man that Milan really want. The Rossoneri have been informed about his situation as early as January as part of the operation that saw Ricardo Rodriguez move to PSV.
The valuation that the Eredivisie side have placed on Dumfries is around €15million and there is the approval of chief scout Geoffrey Moncada to make the move.
Dumfries is very enticed by the possibility of playing in Italy with the Milan shirt. Confirmation came earlier on Monday when he was asked by Fox Sports if his new baby would get a Milan shirt when it is born, to which he replied: “No, not yet (laughs. Ed.) Maybe not yet, maybe yes, maybe not. We just have to wait and see.”
