Van der Wiel keen on Chelsea

Ajax defender Gregory van der Wiel has admitted it would be hard to resist the chance to join Chelsea.

Van der Wiel, 24, has been linked with a summer transfer to Chelsea, with the club thought to be keen to bolster the position of right back.

The Netherlands international was in action for his nation as they hammered Northern Ireland 6-0 on Saturday, and, speaking after the game, he outlined his interest in a move to Stamford Bridge.

He told Sky Sports News: "I haven't heard anything from my manager so it's just rumours I think. We'll see."

When asked if Chelsea did make an approach whether he would be tempted, Van der Wiel replied: "Yeah of course, it would be a beautiful club.

"I watch a lot of football, Chelsea didn't have the best season but they won the Champions League and that was a great performance."
