NEWS: Liverpool competing with Man United in the race to sign Denzel Dumfries


Liverpool and Manchester United are vying for the opportunity to sign Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries in the upcoming transfer window, according to the Italian outlet Calciomercato.

The Reds encountered defensive problems, and it was expected that they would address this issue in the summer transfer window.

However, they prioritized rebuilding their midfield and decided against making any defensive additions before the transfer deadline.

With other areas of the squad strengthened in the last transfer window, Liverpool now appears to be focused on shoring up their defence by potentially acquiring a new fullback.

Calciomercato reports that Liverpool, having been impressed by Dumfries’ recent outstanding performances, have expressed their interest in signing the Netherlands international to provide support for Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Inter might seek a fee of approximately £35 million if they are forced to sell their prized asset, which means the Reds would need to make a significant investment to secure the 27-year-old’s services.

The Dutch star possesses the essential qualities to excel in the Premier League, making him an excellent addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side if they can successfully recruit him to Anfield.

United has been linked with the player for a long time but they have not made a definitive move to secure his signature yet.

Therefore, it remains uncertain whether they will decide to make an offer for him next year to reinforce their defensive lineup.

Dumfries possesses several valuable attributes: speed, strength, proficiency in aerial play, adeptness in building up from the back, excellence in providing crosses from wide areas, and the capability to contribute to crucial goals.

He could potentially be a strong addition for either Liverpool or Man United if either of these clubs succeeds in securing his services in the upcoming transfer window.
