Alfred Duncan started playing football aged five years old with Kumasi Asante Kotoko Academy before joining Inter Milan's academy in 2012 at the age of 16 where he progressed through their ranks to make his senior team appearances two years later.

After appearing sparingly during his first three seasons with Inter Milan due to injury (he only featured 26 times across all competitions), he impressed during 2018–19 by scoring six goals in 76 league appearances whilst also making one appearance for Italy U21s which helped him earn selection into Giovanni Trapattoni's squad ahead of World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Malta.. Following Sassuolo’s relegation from Serie A during the 2020/21 season, Dynamo Moscow expressed an interest in signing him but due to Italian transfer rules this move could not be completed so instead Alfred joined up again with former manager Luciano Spalletti at Florence after agreeing terms on a four-and-a-half year contract worth €8 million (£7m/$10m).
