The brave full-back has been attracting a lot of attention at Euros, with PSV getting ready to receive many offers.

Frank de Boer

, Netherlands’ coach, is not worried about

Denzel Dumfries

' focus at Euro 2020 as the PSV full-back is ‘dealing with’ speculations of

Bayern Munich

and

Real Madrid

being keen on getting his signature.

The Dutch squad have been impressing on international duty, taking all the points from the group stage.

Dumfries has met the back of the net twice at the tournament, but De Boer believes the 25-year-old won’t get distracted with the speculations.

When asked about the Dumfries’ talk, De Boer said:

"I don’t really have these conversations. 

"It’s great for Denzel the way he performed. When you perform on a stage like this, you know people are looking and some clubs will get interested in your performances. 

"You want to show yourself at your best. This is great for everybody. So, when there are rumours, it’s normal but I’m quite sure Denzel can deal with it. 

"He knows why he is here and this is the most important thing. He will read about it, he will hear about it but I’m not scared he will do strange things because of those rumours."

Another Dutch player, who is rumored to be going out the exit door at

PSV

, is

Donyell Malen

.

Liverpool have been keen on acquiring the 22-year-old’s services; however, they have only seen him in action for 93 minutes at the European Championship.

De Boer talked about why he isn’t playing prominently:

"The international breakthrough, this is the highest level. Everybody is looking. It’s also about performing against other opponents.

"He needs to show this every game over and over again. He has the qualities to become a great international player but first he has to show this not only in one game but over several games. 

"We are all definitely convinced he can do so and when you know your football you can see the quality of this player, it’s obvious, and it’s normal that everybody likes his quality.

"I know my football and I love the boy. I also like to win."
