A look at the latest Newcastle United transfer rumours on Tuesday, May 9.
Magpies keen on Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries
Newcastle United are reportedly keen on signing Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries this summer, according to Football Insider. The Dutch defender, who impressed at the World Cup in Qatar earlier this season, is said to be a target for the Magpies if Ivan Fresneda joins another side.
The Toon are said to still be interested in signing the young Spaniard, but Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal are reportedly in pole position. Eddie Howe’s side know they need to bolster their squad if they want to compete on multiple fronts next season.
Dumfries has plenty of experience at 27-years-old and European experience with PSV and Inter. The Dutch right-back won the Coppa Italia in 2021-22.
