van dijk ceVan Dijk has caught the attention of a number of clubs after impressing for the Scottish champions since his move from Groningen last summer.

The 22-year-old has been a revelation in Scotland, but with national team boss Louis van Gaal ignoring the talented defender, Van Dijk may look for a move to force his way into future Netherlands boss Guus Hiddink’s plans.

His agent Henk-Maarten Chin has claimed that a number of English clubs are following his client, and that he expects a move in the summer.

Chin is quoted by the Express saying, “Many English clubs are interested in him – the absolute top clubs.

“They watch him and are very keen. There has been no official approaches for Virgil yet, but that will come after the season ends.

“There’s certainly far more interest in him than we could have dreamed of. I expect something will happen for him this summer.”

Manchester City, Arsenal, and Manchester United have all been linked with the Dutch stopper in the past.
