According to reports, Chelsea are ready to offer Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk a contract worth £170,000 a week.
Manchester City are also said to be interested and are considering offering Van Dijk wages of £180,000 a week, but it’s the Blues that are favourites to land Dijk.
Chelsea are currently linked with a whole host of players and Antonio Conte has admitted he needs to prepare his squad for a return to the Champions League next season.
As per reports, the west London side are keen to get the Southampton defender over to Stamford Bridge and will offer a contract decent enough to convince him to make the move.
It’s also said that Liverpool are interested, but Southampton are holding out for a bid of around £60m for the Dutch defender.
No formal offers have been made as yet.
