“I would love to see him at Tottenham”- Spurs backed to sign 26-year-old Netherlands international

Tottenham Hotspur backed to sign Inter Milan and the Netherlands right-back Denzel Dumfries

Tottenham Hotspur have been backed to complete a move for Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries, who is with the Netherlands squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

 According to a recent report by Calciomercatoweb (h/t Football.London), Tottenham and Chelsea could be drawn into a bidding war for the right-back in the January transfer window, and he could cost around £26million.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also stated earlier this season that Dumfries did not want to join a Premier League team this summer – amid interest from Chelsea and Manchester United – so that he did not risk his spot in Holland’s World Cup squad.

Now, former Tottenham Hotspur and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson has urged the Lilywhites to sign the former PSV Eindhoven star. He exclusively told Football Insider:

“After the Euros, I was adamant he would be coming to the Premier League. He was heavily linked with Everton at the time. I have to say I was very surprised that he did not come to the Premier League after that tournament.”

“I have watched him very closely. He is brilliant. He is athletic and has great ability going forward but he can also defend. The way Conte wants to play, he would be perfect. I would love to see him at Tottenham.”

Spurs currently have three options to play in that position with Emerson Royal, Djed Spence, and Matt Doherty. But neither are world-class and leave a lot to be desired at times.

Emerson looks like he has a mistake in him defensively and is a bit unpolished in the final third when attacking. Doherty, the former Wolverhampton Wanderers right-back, has failed to win manager Antonio Conte’s trust, which is why he is second in the pecking order.

Spence, meanwhile, is at the bottom of the barrel in that position. He is struggling to find any sort of meaningful minutes and it remains to be seen if Conte will ever begin to trust him.

Dumfries, who is 26 and a regular for both the Netherlands and Inter, is a balanced right-back with experience and quality. It’s best for us to move on at least two of our right-backs and bring in a world-class player in that position.
