PSV’s Dumfries on Everton’s radar Rumour Mill

Everton are reportedly interested in PSV Eindhoven right-back Denzel Dumfries, a sign, perhaps, that Marcel Brands is keen to press on with transfer business while the club looks for its next manager.

The 25-year-old, who has two years left on his current contract at Brands’s former club, will be part of the Netherlands’ Euro 2020 squad.

VI and Eindhovens Dagblad are reporting Everton’s interest in the player.

Looks fast, strong, crosses well and scores a few with feet and head. At 25 he might well be a serious contender. Also around 6ft 2ins height.

Aside from having that grub Mino Raiola as his agent, this lad ticks all the boxes for what we need. Can even play further up the field in right midfield. Newcastle had him on their radar not long ago.

Vijay, Newcastle are not a great yardstick. Just last year the Langstaff brothers were worth £30 mil. Maxim whatshischops is a good player when fit though. So many names of players and managers how can we keep up?

Luckily we have a football director who can continue to do what needs to be done. In our case, sign the top class, right sided players we need.

We all know the right sided weaknesses, as do our opponents. So let’s buy some top quality players and then get a manager or coach who can get the most out of them.

No rush, get the best we can get.

Mancini for me, (I’ve wanted him for several years) as I think he can get the best out of our players. It’s a good fit, similar style.

Moyes is the benchmark, not the solution.

Someone like Conte or a Mourhino type may help us win silverware, 2 years of rollickings followed by disappointment and another rebuild job. Not my kind of manager as I want stability and I was originally all against managers like that, but.. trophies and winning makes enjoyment a reality.

Don’t really know anything about him, but Denzel Dumfries is an awesome name.

Our DoF/board-member (and that can happen only at Everton, folks) seems now to be free to identify “up and coming talent”, this time in the name of a M’sieu Dumfries, 25 and unsought by anyone outside of Holland.

That said, if he has pace, admires Ben Godfrey, can pass accurately, and at 6’2″ can stop a rampaging opponent he’s got to be a welcome addition hasn’t he?

Shame Brendan Galloway didn’t kick on like we hoped he would otherwise we could have had Dumfries and Galloway lining up for us next season.

What a beautiful placing that would be Andrew

Sell Richarlison, buy Zaha and throw in this lad, and Neto, and our attack is sorted.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
08:05:21

Colin@11 – Would rather get Zaha with the Kean money. If there some change for Danjuma there it’s be a bonus. Ideally we keep Richie, but if he pushes he must be replaced with goals. Abrahams and Ings perhaps. Think the Portuguese lads will stay with Wolves. Iwobi out for Loftus-Cheek would be a bonus.

 Posted

Saha is 29 in November so he would have to come on the cheap.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at

Hope he is good then!

Justin, I don’t think I’ve heard any player managed by Mancini have anything positive to say about him?

 Posted

Andrew @9 you made me spill my coffee !! Denzel sounds ideal for us and Brands must know plenty about him.

Don (7) “unsought by anyone outside of Holland”. that is what the DoF role is all about – spotting the talent no one else has yet spotted.

The other thing, of course, is that often individua players might not seem inspiring, of themselves, but in the “right” team, with the “right” team mates then the “team” becomes greater than the sum of its parts. That, of course, is also the job of both the DoF and FTC to achieve.

I know nothing of Denzel, but hopefully he will fullfill the role for which he is being targetted and help us build the “team” we all wish to see, at Everton.

In other news, BBC is reporting that Carlo might “raid” Everton for Richarlison.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at

Denzel’s a Scouser, he was in ‘ Only Fool’s and Horses’ for years, we’ll get some laughs out of him at least, and we can never be short of them.

Loftus cheek for iwobi Like saying swap lingard for Walcott.

Why swap crap for more crap?

One thing we have to agree on though is that whatever comes in has to be better than what we have.

Of all our *new* players, who is actually better than we had? Not difficult but maybe Allan, but really slow, maybe James but really injury probe, ditto mina, doucoure whatismyposition and Godfrey “ill leave balls to go across the box” – watch his England performance.

We just aren’t improving so imo, director of football has to go. He’s not buying any better than what we have. I mean that was a noyes mantra so what happened to it?

 Posted

Bringing in a new right back won’t solve the other issues of a badly needed rebuild in midfield.

Carlo wants Richarlison, for me he can have him, but don’t replace him with another falling over sulker in Zaha.

We need leadership from a manager, and that manager, (whoever it may be) should stamp his signature on the squad with his players, not the Brands and the board playing guessing games again.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
10:17:35

Madrid don’t have the money to pay what we would want for Richarlison. They’d be better off saving 70m to buy haaland next summer when his clause kicks in.

 Posted

Mr Brands will know all about his capabilities and whether he’d be a success in the PL. That what it is all about isn’t it, can he cut the mustard over here ? There’s other exiting options so if we get him in he must be very highly thought of by our DOF. After Iwobi he needs this next attacking signing to be a successful one.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at

I’m with a few on here regarding his name, what’s in a name (?) Shakepeare said ! Denzel immediately puts only Fools and Horses to the fore, and Dumfries immediately make me think of North of the Border.

Having said that, he certainly fits the bill with his resume, but the big question is can he cut it in the Premiership? There has been a mixture of resounding successes and abject failures with Dutch players and their adaptation to the English Prem. Which category will he fall into should we follow through on this?

 Posted

Dumfries would definitely improve our right flank. Very good physical attributes, knows how to play in a pass and move team. Probably not too expensive either. He’s not as good a footballer as some of the others we’ve been linked with like Aarons and Emerson – and he’s unlikely to interest the Champions League giants. But Matty Cash has done well with similar qualities at Villa, so why not?

With us likely to play 352 (ish) under Santo or Potter, I wondered whether a more likely signing now would be Pedro Porro after a very good season with Sporting Lisbon. He’s still on the books at Man City but doesn’t seem likely to get a first team spot any time soon. If we could get Goncalves (ex Wolves) too that would give our first team a very different look.

 Posted

Dumfries was one of the right backs in my transfer piece. From what I’ve seen/read he is a well rounded right back with decent pace and power who, crucially, is very hard working and will get up and down all day long. He’s not a brilliant crosser, dribbler, tackler, passer but is rather decent in all departments. He also seems to pop up with the odd goal (often from set pieces as he is 6ft 2).

If we could get him for around £15m I think it’d be good business. Reminds me a little bit of Sidibe but a bit harder working and slightly better positioning.

Well there’s another surprise.
I can understand why Marcel Brands sees something in him.
He of course will be well familiar with the player, from his time in Eindhoven.

He’s not unlike our Seamus, in that he is an active player. He loves going forward.
A few times I was surprised to see him flying past the right-winger (Berghuis) in the Dutch national team.

He’s the captain of PSV, who have disappointed this season, as a team, with a new German coach (another possible similarity) Roger Schmidt.

Dumfries isn’t perfect, some find him defensively vulnerable (like Seamus..), though that’s mostly at PSV, in the Dutch national team, he’s been mostly more than ok, even when it wasn’t going swimmingly.

I guess he’ll be cheaper than Aarons.

 Posted

Thanks for that insight Francis, it concerns me that the defensive vulnerabilities you describe will only be amplified in the Premier League. I would expect we are looking at a good few options for the position and this is just one of them.

 Posted

Aarons, Aarons, Aarons!

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
14:31:21

I like the look of this guy – good at getting forward, an eye for goal, fast, young – his highlights reel almost entirely shows him attacking rather than defending. Lord knows what he’s actually like when we don’t have the ball but imagine him, Richy, Dom and Nkounkou streaking up the pitch on a breakaway!

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
14:37:53

I just read that his contract is up next year, meaning PSV can’t ask the highest price.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
16:04:02

I heard Brands wanted Denzel, but Carlo wanted experienced older players, so was in the process of putting a bid in for Ashley Williams, in a new right back role, all hell broke lose with Brands losing it and kicking Carlos brew halfway down the Etihad corridor. This was the final straw of Carlo remaining cool, so he headed straight to the airpot with his final words of, Iwobi will be following me soon to Madrid.

Chinese whispers of course, Rob got the inside no how, of what really happened that fateful Sunday afternoon, but by the time, the Chinese whisper reached me, it had taken a whole new meaning of its own.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
17:30:06

If Ancelotti wants Richarlison, he can have him. We can even through in Iwobi, Delph and Holgate as sweetener!

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
19:57:59

Now that Brands is allowed to do his job, what’s the price on picking up Trigger Tobymory and Rodders Renfrew alongside Denzel to complete the summer rebuilding to take us back to the 80’s glory days.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
20:08:20

Well let’s hope there’s a plan to ge some players in soon.

My Dutch friends rate this lad and we live in hope.

Who will be the new Everton, let’s see.

 Posted
04/06/2021 at
21:14:39

What if our new Gaffer doesn’t rate him and he becomes a defensive version of King,by never getting a game?.

Sign up the Tavenier brothers and that’s the right side sorted for next season.

Our record on signing Dutch fellas ain’t so great neither!.

I see Fernandinho has been released by Man City. I’d definitely get him in for a season or two. And don’t start with that age crap. Just look at him, Aguero, Ronaldo, Silva, Ibra etc.. still all at the top of their game.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
13:34:38

1 year contract for fernandinho with option for a 2nd year depending on appearances would be perfect in my humble opinion

 Posted

Mads @ 27, You have too many Aarons in the Fire there, me old China. 🙂

I see Villa are moving quickly to get Buendia.

Solid transfer strategy over there. Young energetic players who are good on the ball.

It’s quite simple when you break it down.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
20:28:42

Villa agreed a £33m fee for Buendia , looks like a done deal. I am jealous, a good buy for them.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
20:41:17

Not seen much of Buendia to know if good deal or not. Didn’t stand out last time they were in the prem but still only 24.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
20:42:51

Agree Colin. With Fernandinho and Allan sitting it would leave James to sit up top behind DCL. Would need bags of pace on the flanks though sith those three in the middle.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
20:46:51

Dan,

I will be surprised if we see James in an Everton shirt next season

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
20:52:08

Why be jealous? Just as possible Villa got robbed, instead of buying well.

Guy scored 24 goals for them in 3 seasons. 1 of those goals in the Prem. One. Might be he’s just a first-rate minor leaguer.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
20:54:14

I disagree Dan. I thought he stood out a mile last time they were in the prem. Everyone was raving about Cantwell, admittedly a good player, but to me Buendia looked like the guy who had the potential to really shine in a better team. I am jealous. There’s no guarantee with players like that, but I’d have loved us to take that gamble. Hard not to feel a bit bleak about our prospects just now… who would come to us?

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
21:07:51

In his last season in the PL Buendia may not have scored much but was still one of the best creators from open play in the league. He also covers a huge amount of ground and wins a lot of duels. Basically all the stats suggest he’s a very useful player!

If we had spent £30m on him rather than Iwobi or Sigurdsson we’d have a much better squad. I too am jealous of Villa, though given what we have I think we probably need a RW with pace to burn, which is not Buendia’s strong point.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
21:30:05

New manager or not we want to see a lot of raised shirts and flashing cameras pronto. Do your job Brands. The new boss will dovetail with the system and ( new ) players we get. Southampton done it for years and maybe still do. Same with Leicester even if they lose a boss.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
21:35:50

Funny about Buendia… his statistics are staggering but when I’ve seen him play he just didn’t dazzle me. Flawless passing touch, but slow.

I wonder how much of an impact he’ll really make.

 Posted
05/06/2021 at
21:42:33

Buendia to Villa for only 33m?? Didn’t we pay much more than that for a much older bloke from Iceland?

Championship player of the season by a country mile.

Most Norwich supporters rate him higher than Maddison, and all those shouting for Aarons might like to consider that maybe playing behind the best player in the league makes him look better too…

Can’t believe Villa are pulling this off… thought he’d only be going to a team with European football – extremely disappointed we are missing out at this price!!!
