Chelsea switch attention to Dumfries

Chelsea have decided to move on from their long pursuit of Jules Koundé seemingly destined to end in failure.

With Barcelona now favourites to sign the 24 year old French international they have moved on to the next name on the list of possible defensive targets.

At Inter Milan they have looked at both centre back  Milan Škriniar and wing-back Denzel Dumfries, but Dumfries appears the more attainable of the two. That is because the Serie A sides have raised their valuation of the Slovak Škriniar to £59 million, which is more than Chelsea were ready to pay for Koundé.

Inter are more ready to listen to offers for Dumfries, who is also attracting interest from Manchester United.

Dumfries is a Dutch international best known for his rampaging runs up and down the right flank, and, should he be signed, may be an indication that Chelsea are finally prepared to let club captain César Azpilicueta leave the club this summer.
