Ditch Emerson, signal Dumfries

Contemplating the fairly contrasting campaigns Dumfries and Emerson have loved throughout their respective spells at Inter and Tottenham, ought to Conte handle to knock the previous’s £53m asking worth down by together with the Brazilian within the deal, it might undoubtedly signify one thing of a masterstroke by the 53-year-old supervisor.
