Inter Milan has completed the double signing of veteran striker Edin Dzeko from AS Roma and Netherlands international Denzel Dumfries, the Serie A side announced on Saturday.

Dzeko, 35, has been brought in to replace Romelu Lukaku, who joined English Premier League side Chelsea in a club record 97.5 million pound ($135.16 million) deal on Thursday, and has signed a two-year deal in Milan.

Dutch full back Dumfries, who scored twice for the Netherlands at Euro 2020, joins on a permanent deal from PSV Eindhoven, signing a deal until June 2025.

 

Dzeko and Dumfries take Inter's transfer dealings to three signings this summer after Turkish free agent Hakan Calhanoglu moved across the city from AC Milan at the end of his contract.

Bosnia and Herzegovina international Dzeko arrives at San Siro after five years in Rome, where he scored 119 goals in 260 appearances in all competitions to become the club's third highest scorer of all time, behind Francesco Totti (307 goals) and Roberto Pruzzo (138).
