Chelsea have reportedly made an official bid to sign Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries this month.

The 26-year-old has been regularly linked with a Premier League move and he could head to Stamford Bridge soon.

According to La Repubblica, the Blues have now made a formal bid of around €35 million to land the right-back.

The proposal has been rejected by the Nerazzurri and it is claimed that they need to offer €55 million to sign him.

The Blues currently have a top-class right-back in the form of Reece James, but he is just returning from an injury.

Hence, they need to balance his workload over the coming weeks and Dumfries would be a solid competitor.

He may not come with the same pedigree as James but the Dutchman has built his reputation as an attacking full-back.

He would perfectly suit the west London giants as he is well accomplished to playing in the right wing-back role.

Manchester United have also been linked with the former PSV Eindhoven star.
