Chelsea set to seal first summer deal

van ginkel.jpgJohn Drayton from Mail Online has just arrived in the Football Transfer Tavern this afternoon with news that has pleased Chelsea fans as the Blues look all set to secure their first signing of the summer in Dutch youngster Marco van Ginkel.

It is understood that a deal for the 20-year-old, who plays for Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie, has been put in place to make the starlet Jose Mourinho’s first signing as Chelsea manager once he takes charge in the next few weeks.

The Netherlands Under-21 international is regarded as one of the finest young talents in Dutch football, scoring eight times as he helped his current side secure a Europa League place after a fourth placed finish.

Chelsea are hoping to have the transfer wrapped up before the Under-21 European Championships in June where the youngster is expected to win more admirers for his exciting creative play and given their close relationship with Vitesse, which has seen Chelsea kids sign on loan, they should secure the transfer in the next few days.

Recently named the prestigious Dutch ‘talent of the year’ Chelsea fans will rightly be watching his progress over the course of the championships if the young Oranje are successful.

Will the Dutch starlet be the next big thing at Stamford Bridge? Rate this rumour below.
