Inter Milan eye Nigeria-eligible Italian full-back as potential Dumfries replacement

Inter Milan have won twenty-one games in the Italian Serie A this season, losing just one and are eleven points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand.

Thirty-six-time Italian Champions, Inter Milan, are keeping an eye on Fiorentina full-back, Michael Kayode, as a potential replacement for Denzel Dumfries, Soccernet.ng reports.

Dutch full-back, Denzel Dumfries has been a servant at the San Siro since 2021, winning the Copa Italia and the Super Copa Italia with Simone Inzaghi’s side.

The 27-year-old’s contract runs out in 2025 and the club has not been able to reach an agreement with the former PSV man regarding a new deal, hinting at a possible departure from the Nerazzurri’s in the summer.

According to Inter News , the 2010 UEFA Champions League winners have identified 19-year-old Michael Kayode as a potential replacement for Dumfries.

Kayode was born in Italy and currently plays as a right-back for Fiorentina after coming through the ranks at the club’s academy and might cost Inter a fortune as his current contract expires in 2028.

He was previously linked with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, and has featured for the U-18,U-19, and U-21 levels of the Italian national team, but a switch of allegiance to don the colours of Nigeria isn’t out of the question.

Kayode scored his first senior career goal in the Violas’ Serie A win over Lazio yesterday and is held in high regard by the former Napoli coach, Luciano Spalletti who is now in charge of the Italian national team.
