“Tottenham will need to sell a player or two”- Spurs told the ramifications of potential £26m deal for Dutch star

Tottenham Hotspur backed by Pascal Chimbonda to pursue Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries in £26m deal

Former Tottenham Hotspur and France national team defender Pascal Chimbonda has backed the club to complete a deal for Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries.

Spurs have been linked with a £26million move for the Netherlands international in the January transfer window. Speaking to Lord Ping (h/t NottinghamshireLive), Chimbonda stated that Spurs may have to sell someone if they do sign Dumfries:

“I think Dumfries would be a good addition to the squad. If he were to join the club that would give us four right backs, which is far too many. Tottenham will need to sell a player or two before he joins and I also think they need to think about Spence’s future too.”

“He will not be happy to see another player come into the team. I really like Dumfries as a player. I like what he offers going forward and I think he would be an improvement on Royal and Doherty.”

Emerson Royal has been Conte’s first-choice option down the right-hand side, perhaps due to a lack of better options. It took a three-match suspension for the former Barcelona right-back for Matt Doherty to get a chance in the team.

The Republic of Ireland international has been good whenever he has taken to the pitch for us this season. But it can’t be denied that Spurs can upgrade in the position.

Spence has been a disappointing addition – not because of his ability but because of how less he has been utilised. It could have been an investment Spurs could have made on another player that Conte wanted.

The former Chelsea and Juventus boss clearly revamped the left-hand side. He sent out Sergio Reguilon on loan to Atletico Madrid, reinstated Ryan Sessegnon in the matchday squads on a regular basis, signed Ivan Perisic on a free transfer, and transformed Ben Davies into a left-sided centre-half.

Perhaps a similar revolution can be used down the right-hand side. Dumfries can be the man for that. Those who have seen him play at Inter Milan know that he is a complete package as a full-back.

The former PSV Eindhoven man can attack and defend with equal diligence and the price tag quoted above for him isn’t half bad. One worry is that he is going to the 2022 FIFA World Cup – where an impressive showing can increase his stocks and potential suitors that are in need of a world-class right-back.
