Dumfries' agent reacts to Netherlands star's price tag talk amid Man Utd & Chelsea transfer links

  • Dutch star impressing at 2022 World Cup
  • Currently on the books at Inter
  • Linked with Premier League heavyweights

WHAT HAPPENED? The Netherlands international has been catching the eye again at another major tournament, with his performances at the 2022 World Cup suggesting that a big-money transfer could soon be on the cards. Serie A giants Inter will be reluctant sellers, but the buccaneering right-back is said to be attracting plenty of interest from the Premier League.

WHAT THEY SAID: Dumfries’ representative, Rafaela Pimenta, would be open to holding talks with interested parties and would prefer not to see more pounds and euros piled onto the 26-year-old’s price tag. She said when asked by Sky Sport Italia if that figure is beginning to rocket: “Let's hope not, otherwise it would be more difficult to transfer him!”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Dumfries moved to Italy after impressing at Euro 2020, with Inter getting quite the bargain as they prised an exciting performer away from PSV for just €15 million (£13m/$16m).
