Blues Legend Reveals Why Conte Must Buy Dutch Ace




Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins believes Antonio Conte must move for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk to continue to mount a serious title challenge in the Premier League.

Van Dijk has been continuously linked with a move away from the Saints with host of top clubs in the race to sign the Dutchman but Wilkins has tipped him to join the Blues.

He told talksport: “Van Dijk has had a fantastic time since he has come down Celtic, almost looked a little bit of a snip for what Southampton got him for,

“He has improved and he looks a very good defender.

“He would bring on the youngsters coming through as well because he is excellent on the communication side of stuff. He would be a perfect fit [for Chelsea].”

However, Conte is reportedly eyeing a move for Italian ace Giorgio Cheillini in a mega-deal during the January transfer window
