Reports are out claiming that Chelsea have joined the battle for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.
The Times revealed that the Blues are considering a move for the Southampton defender in the January transfer window.
The 25-year-old’s impressive form has placed him on Antonio Conte’s radar.
The Chelsea boss is thought to be in the market for a defender, despite his side only conceding two goals in eight league games after switching to a 3-4-3 formation.
Chelsea’s main competition for van Dijk is thought to be from old boss Jose Mourinho, who is now at Manchester United.
