Chelsea have been interested in Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, and reports now claim his move to Chelsea will soon be a done deal.
According to The Sun, the Saints have been tempted after Chelsea threw young Denmark centre-half Andreas Christensen into the deal for the Dutch powerhouse.
The Gunners were thought to be in pole position to sign Van Dijk, but the inclusion of Chelsea youngster Christensen who’s on loan to Borussia Monchengladbach, has reportedly made Southampton interested in selling to Chelsea.
The report also claims that Van Dijk has been tempted with more than £150,000 a week at the Emirates but he prefers a move to Stamford Bridge.
While a summer move for Van Dijk will be well appreciated, I can’t help but imagine why we’d have to lose a buzzing youngster in Christensen – who was earmarked to be the future.
Hopefully, this is only a rumour and nothing other than that.
What do you think guys?
