Chelsea boss Graham Potter wants the club to sign a right-back in January to provide competition for Reece James.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the Blues will move to sign Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries in January.

The Dutch international will reportedly cost Chelsea around €30million, a fee that Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is willing to pay.

Dumfries was a transfer target for Chelsea during the summer transfer window but the Dutch right-back opted to stay back in Italy.
