Aston Villa plan double swoop for Denzel Dumfries, Kristjan Asllani

Aston Villa will reportedly look to sign Denzel Dumfries and Kristjan Asllani in a double raid on Inter Milan worth €55 million.

According to a report by Italian outlet Inter Liver, Denzel Dumfries and Kristjan Asllani are the subjects of interest from Aston Villa. The Villans are keen on signing the duo from newly-crowned Serie A champions Inter Milan in a combined deal worth €55 million in the summer transfer window. However, Dumfries is waiting for an approach from either Manchester United or Arsenal.

Denzel Dumfries, Kristjan Asllani and the Inter Milan journeys

Denzel Dumfries has been one of the best full-backs in Serie A since joining Inter Milan from PSV Eindhoven nearly three years ago. The Dutchman has come leaps and bounds since then, becoming a pivotal figure for the Nerazzurri. He has turned out 131 times thus far for the newly-crowned Serie A champions, chipping in with 11 goals and 20 assists.

As for Kristjan Asllani, he has been a backup figure for Inter Milan since arriving from Empoli in July 2021. However, the Albanian international has been an asset for the Serie A giants despite his role in the squad. The youngster has made 59 appearances thus far for Inter, chipping in with one goal and two assists.

Both players face an uncertain future at Inter Milan heading into the summer transfer window. While Denzel Dumfries has courted interest from the Premier League, Kristjan Asllani is gradually raking in the suitors. However, the duo might reunite at Aston Villa, with the West Midlands club keen on signing them for a combined fee of €55 million.

Premier League beckons?

Aston Villa’s interest in Denzel Dumfries is understandable. Unai Emery wants an upgrade on Matty Cash and will enter the market for a top-class right-back in the summer transfer window. However, while the Dutchman is a viable target for Aston Villa, he is keen on joining either Manchester United or Arsenal.

As for Asllani, he can be a solid addition to the Aston Villa midfield unit. While Emery has several midfielders in his squad, he will likely begin the 2024/25 campaign without Boubacar Kamara. So, the former Arsenal manager wants Aston Villa to sign Asllani in the summer transfer window.

A combined fee of €55 million might be good enough for Aston Villa to lure Inter Milan to sell Asllani and Dumfries. It will be interesting to see if the Serie A champions entertain the double offer in the summer transfer window.
