Everton told to U-turn on Dumfries signing after fee update - Robinson
Everton should reconsider their decision to pull out of the race to sign PSV Eindhoven defender Denzel Dumfries this summer, according to Paul Robinson.
The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 25-year-old “would be a great signing” for the Toffees given his “bargain” price this summer.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, via FC Inter 1908 (August 3rd), Everton have pulled out out the race to sign the right-back after he made it clear he would prefer a move to Inter Milan.
The Liverpool Echo claimed on July 30th that PSV value Dumfries in the region of £15million.
Robinson is adamant that is a price worth paying for a right-back who shone for the Netherlands at Euro 2020.
“I’m surprised that there is not a queue of clubs trying to sign him,” he told Football Insider.

“I thought he was amazing in the Euros. He is a fantastic player who has one of the best names in world football! I think he turned a lot of heads with his performances this summer.
“I know Coleman has signed a new contract but Dumfries is versatile and can play higher up if needed. He can play as a wing-back or as a conventional right-back in a four.
“I think he would be a great signing for Everton and for £15million it would be a bargain. That is nothing for a player of his quality.”
