Inter Milan right-back and Netherlands international Denzel Dumfries considers links with Chelsea to be a compliment but claims to be paying little attention to transfer talk during the 2022 World Cup.

Dumfries told The Athletic when asked about Chelsea’s supposed interest in securing his services: “Of course it’s a compliment. 

“But when you put the Nerazzurri shirt on that is also a big compliment.

“I’m focused on the national team and I play for a very, very beautiful club in Italy. I’m very proud that I can play for Inter so I am focused on nothing else but the national team and Inter.”
