Chelsea have been linked with Southampton star defender Virgil van Dijk, and according to Bleacher Report, Chelsea have launched a £60 million offer for the defender.

Van Dijk has been in amazing form for Southampton, and is wanted by Chelsea and Manchester City as well.

Bleacher Report quotes Neil Fissler of the Sunday Express: “Saints boss Claude Puel is determined that the former Celtic man won’t be leaving the club during this transfer window,” added Fissler. “But Chelsea want to test his resolve with hard cash—something which has always been difficult for Southampton to turn down in the past.”

Van Dijk has in good form for Chelsea this season, and according to Squawka, no defender has won more aerial duels in the Premier League this season than Virgil van Dijk (79).
