Everton and Inter Milan target Denzel Dumfries is “allowed to talk to other clubs”, according to reports in the Netherlands.

Dumfries has been with PSV since 2018. He has been an integral player for them as he has played 124 times across all competitions.

The right-back’s performances for them has led to him becoming a regular for the Netherlands.

Dumfries impressed for his country at this summer’s European Championships even though they were dumped out in the Round of 16.

Everton and Inter Milan have both been linked with the defender. 

Marco Timmer (journalist for Dutch outlet Voetbal International) has reported that Dumfries and Donyell Malen are expected to leave PSV this summer.

He adds that Mino Raiola (the agent of both Dumfries and Malen) is talking to their interested clubs about transfers.

Timmer said: “Roger Schmidt (PSV’s manager) doesn’t really expect Malen and Dumfries back.

“On the other hand, I believe they have to report back on 19 July. There is not enough movement yet to say that there is already a transfer (but) we also know that things can go fast.

“I have spoken to some people within PSV who indicate there has been nobody concrete yet, not for Madueke. Not for Ihattaren, not for Dumfries, not for Malen yesterday.

“Yes, of course, there are negotiations going on, and with that, it can also be counted on the negotiations that in this case, Mino Raiola is conducting with Dortmund or Liverpool, for example, for Malen and Inter and Everton for Dumfries, so he has been given that space.

“They are allowed to talk to other clubs. And then at some point, it can go fast.”

Elsewhere, Trevor Sinclair has suggested that Jordan Pickford is “one of the best goalkeepers in the world”:

“There’s one thing I’ve been really impressed with, I heard the other day he’s been seeing a sports psychologist, and that’s Jordan Pickford.

“I have been very critical of him and his concentration. Nothing personal about him, but from a goalkeeping view and his style of goalkeeping, what you need from a goalkeeper and his calmness.

“It’s not been there in the past. I wasn’t convinced he could keep clean sheets for us, do simple things well and keep his concentration.

“He’s proved me wrong and he has done that and I’m pleased he’s going to see a sports psychologist because he looks like one of the best goalkeepers in the world at the moment.”
