Chelsea in advanced talks with €25m-rated Serie A star

Romelu Lukaku’s prospects of a sensational comeback to Chelsea are starting to gather steam lately. But the BLues are not going to make this operation easy and have recently asked Inter Milan to include Denzel Dumfries in the proposal to sign the centre-forward this summer.

The Blues have recently given Romelu Lukaku the green light to leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window. It has served as a major boost for the Nerazzurri, who are prepared to re-sign the centre-forward following his departure last summer.

After spending nearly €115m for the centre-forward, though, the Blues are in no mood of letting the striker go easily. Chelsea have expressed their desire to recoup the majority of the amount they had spent on Romelu Lukaku.

Knowing Inter Milan’s financial shortcomings, though, they have demanded the inclusion of Denzel in the deal, with the defender rated highly by the German coach. With Azpilicueta subjected to a move to Barcelona, Thomas Tuchel believes the signing of the Netherlands international could be a smart investment.

The Dutch defender can offer competition for Reece James at right wing-back, and his offensive qualities and athleticism would make him a perfect fit in the PL.

With five goals and five assists in his maiden campaign in Serie A, the Dutchman has already found himself on the crosshair of both Man United and Bayern Munich. But the Blues have an impressive chance to sign the ex-PSV defender due to their leverage of Romelu Lukaku.
