Chelsea table £30.8m bid for Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries
A few months ago, Football.London reported that the Nerazzurri are not in favour of selling Dumfries, but their financial condition leaves them with not much option if an offer comes.
The same report updated that Chelsea are concerned by the injuries Reece James has picked up in the last year or so. Hence, they are looking at the Dutch international as a backup option.
The former PSV Eindhoven player can play both as a right-back and a right-wing-back. He is great at both ends of the pitch, be it the creation of chances from wide areas or being solid defensively in one-on-one situations.
James has indeed had some bad luck with injuries in the last 12 months. After missing a few games in the middle of last season, the England international picked up a knee injury in October that kept him out for the whole of the World Cup.

Having spent a lot of money signing Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk, it remains to be seen whether the Blues will push Dumfries with what Inter are demanding. Looking at the recent injury history of James, it makes sense too.
