Inter wing-back Denzel Dumfries has admitted that he has been 'flattered' by transfer interest shown in him by the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, but he remains committed to the Nerazzurri.

The Netherlands international only joined Inter last summer from PSV Eindhoven but impressed in his debut season at San Siro, scoring five goals and registering four assists for Simone Inzaghi's side.

This impressive campaign led to links with Chelsea and United, who were both in the market for reinforcements at either wing-back or right-back.

But speaking to De Telegraaf, Dumfries played down the possibility of a move away from Inter, insisting he has unfinished business in Italy.

"The interest flatters me, of course. But my focus is only on Inter," he said.

"We want to win the Scudetto because we lost it last season."

Despite spending a world-record £273m in the summer transfer window, Chelsea ultimately did not bring in a new right wing-back, though did sign defenders Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella.

United similarly did not make any additions at right-back, despite being offered the chance to sign Sergino Dest from Barcelona. However, their failure to shift Aaron Wan-Bissaka meant strengthening in other areas became a priority.
