Chelsea are big favourites to sign Netherlands international and Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries in January, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Dumfries has impressed for the Netherlands at the World Cup. He assisted twice and scored once as Netherlands beat USA 3-1 in the round of 16.

Inter Milan reportedly value Dumfries at around £52million and Chelsea are now firm favourites to sign the right-back.

Reacting to Chelsea’s interest, Dumfries told The Athletic: “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.”
