Denzel Dumfries was absolutely brilliant for The Netherlands today as they beat the USA comfortably in a 3-1 win, and spoke about the interest from Chelsea in an interview after the game.

Chelsea are interested in both Dumfries and his fellow Dutch right-back Jeremie Frimpong, as they look to sign someone to provide competition for Reece James in the coming seasons.

Dumfries spoke about the interest, and is flattered by links to a club like Chelsea.

“Chelsea move in January? I’m focused on nothing else but national team and Inter”.

Dumfries is a target for Chelsea, and that performance today against the United States could be a defining moment in whether Chelsea move for him.

Chelsea are targeting a right-back in January, and Dumfries is on a list alongside players like Jeremie Frimpong and Malo Gusto from Lyon.

The player is likely to be open to a move, and will be available for around £35million from Inter Milan, which is a great price for a player of his quality in today's market.

Nice words from Dumfries regarding Chelsea, and a saga to keep a watchful eye on.
