Chelsea face Stoke City today and it will not come as any surprise if they win their 13th league game on the trot.
The Blues have a very strong squad and even the departure of Brazilian attacker Oscar has not weakened the team. The Stamford Bridge club got a mammoth fee from the sale of Oscar and have the money to spend in the winter transfer window.
Southampton’s star defender Virgil van Dijk is heavily linked with a move away from the St. Mary’s and Chelsea are one of the clubs interested in signing the 25-year-old Dutch international.
According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are looking to agree the signing of the £55million rated ($68million) center half in the January transfer window.
Manager Antonio Conte already has a very strong defense at his disposal. The Blues have only conceded 2 goals in their 12 match winning streak and really do not need to spend the above mentioned sum to sign Van Dijk.
As per the provided Mail link, Man City are planning to move for the former Celtic defender next summer but Chelsea’s interest in the player may that change that.
In your opinion, should Chelsea splash $68million to sign Van Dijk?
