Everton Odds: Toffees close on Denzel Dumfries

Denzel Dumfries has been catching the attention of many top European clubs thanks to his exploits at Euro 2020 and Everton are the frontrunners to secure the signature of the Dutch dynamo.


Update: 28.07.21


Everton remain odds-on favourites to secure the signature of PSV’s Denzel Dumfries but despite this there is still no clarity on there future of the player.

A transfer is still very much on the cards for the full-back before the end of the summer transfer window and Everton are in the driving seat as far as getting a deal done is concerned, however despite the current reports linking him with a move to the Toffees, there remains little clarity with regard to his immediate plans.

Dumfries impressed at the European Championships this summer and this only served to increase the interest in him, Inter Milan also emerging as one of the leading contenders to secure his signature this summer. After numerous reports linking the player with a transfer to either Inter or Everton, there have been no new developments in recent days.

Reports suggest that PSV’s sales tally for the summer is around €38 million and this will increase if bonuses are met. Also this figure will become higher should a suitor be found for Denzel Dumfries and it is expected that he would bring in over €15 million.

A transfer is anticipated either within the next few days or the next couple of weeks and the fact that PSV are still confident that a move will take place, this should be seen as a positive sign. The club certainly believe that a club will come forward with the required sum at some point and the bookmakers’ odds would suggest that Everton will be there first.

Reports suggest that Everton may well find themselves priced out of the race to secure the signature of Denzel Dumfries during the summer transfer window.

The Toffees are still favourites to sign the Netherlands international this summer and they remain at the head of the queue to land the player, who is expected to leave PSV Eindhoven before the end of the summer transfer window. Nevertheless the possibility remains that Rafael Benitez’s side won’t be able to afford the transfer fees for the 25-year-old and the right-back may well head to Italy instead, Inter Milan second favourites in the market at general odds of 10/1.

Everton will be eager to shore up their defence in the new season and the addition of Dumfries to the squad would certainly be a positive start for new boss Rafael Benitez.

Dumfries found the back of the net four times and registered a total of nine assists in his 41 games for the Dutch side last season and he put in a good showing at this summer’s European Championships. As things stand he is valued at around £21.5 million and several clubs are still interested in securing his signature this summer.

While Everton are still odds-on favourites at 4/5 to lure Dumfries to Goodison Park, Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur are third in the betting at 12/1. Bayern Munich and Real Madrid complete the market at odds of 20/1 and 25/1 respectively.

Everton are now within a whisker away from signing Denzel Dumfries, the PSV defender now odds-on at just 1/2 to become part of the Rafael Benitez project at Goodison Park. Indeed, until recently the Toffees trailed one side in the market with Serie A outfit Inter Milan a general 5/4 to get their hands on the Dutchman only a few days ago, however the Italian champions are now way behind in the betting air general odds of 4/1.

Dumfries was one of the most noticeable stars at Euro 2020 and it is little surprise that many clubs have been keen to get their hands on him, however Everton would certainly be an excellent destination for the player and it would give new boss Rafael Benitez a strong start to his time in charge of the Merseyside club.

Reports suggest that PSV and Everton are very close to reaching an agreement for Dumfries and the 25-year-old would be seen as a perfect replacement for Seamus Coleman. Indeed the Merseyside outfit desperately need to sort out their defensive set-up should they wish to make a genuine challenge for a European berth next term and the arrival of Dumfries would clearly be a huge step in the right direction.
