Reports are out claiming that Chelsea are interested in Feyenoord defender Stefan de Vrij.
The 20 year old centre-half is inside the final two years of his current deal and stalling on penning new terms.
“I cannot just sign. I am open to a contract extension, but before I sign we must first negotiate,” he said.
Voetbal International claim that Chelsea are monitoring developments closely.
De Vrij has also been a long-term target for Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley.
