Inter Milan are ready to sell Denzel Dumfries this summer and will accept a bid in the region of £26million Manchester United for the Dutchman.
Erik ten Hag has identified the 26-year-old as a target after being impressed with how he has adapted to Serie A since leaving PSV in 2021.
Inter paid around £11m for Dumfries just 12 months ago and he impressed in his debut season at the San Siro with 45 appearances in all competitions as the club finished second behind rivals AC.
United are focused on signing Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona but the club are working on other goals, with Ten Hag keen to strengthen the right-back.
Dumfries, an orthodox right-back, could provide the attacking boost United lack with Aaron Wan-Bissaka occupying the position since arriving from Crystal Palace in 2019.
Dumfries is said to be keen to stay at Inter but should he have to leave United are his first choice as he is keen to work with Ten Hag.
That’s an achievable fee for United, especially as the club have more expensive targets in midfield and attack.
Barcelona are targeting around £72m for De Jong, while United’s opening offer for Ajax winger Antony is said to be around £38m.
