Ten Hag pushing Man Utd to sign Inter Milan fullback Dumfries

Incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is targeting Inter Milan fullback Denzel Dumfries.

Tuttosport says Ten Hag has put Dumfries, 26, "top of his preferences".

Initially Ten Hag was reported to have been eager to bring out-of-contract Ajax star Noussair Mazraoui with him to Old Trafford.

But the right-back is on the verge of a move to Bayern Munich, leaving the new gaffer with no choice but to pursue alternative targets.

Dumfries has impressed during his debut season at the San Siro following a £12.5million transfer from PSV Eindhoven last summer.

And the full-back would now be worth at least £30m in the upcoming transfer window.

There could be change in the position at United before the start of the next campaign, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka waiting to speak to Ten Hag to see if he is in the Dutchman's plans.

If not, then Atletico Madrid and Crystal Palace - as well as Roma - are keen on his signature.
