Holland boss Koeman tells Chelsea £60 million target De Ligt ‘will leave Ajax’ very soon

Ajax ace and Chelsea target Matthijs De Ligt will leave the Dutch giants soon, claims Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman.

Maurizio Sarri may be enjoying an unbeaten start to the new season, but there is some concern over the qualities of David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and the unhappy Andreas Christensen, who could even leave the club with his game time very limited.

And that has led to some speculation over the last few weeks that we could indeed make a move to try and sign up the talented De Ligt, who is one of the most sought after youngsters in world football.

He has already played 55 times in Holland’s top flight and his performances have caught the attentions of Sarri who is looking to improve the back-line in the coming transfer windows.

And we have been put on high alert after Koeman announced that De Ligt will be moving onto a higher league ‘very soon’.

The former Everton and Southampton boss said on the TalkSport website: “It is obvious a player of the level of Matthijs will move into a higher league soon.

“I have talked about him a lot and the truth is he should be playing at a much higher level, he has the ability to make it to the very top in football.

“He made his debut in the Champions League group stage and then his next game was on a plastic pitch away against Excelsior, that is not something that is sustainable.

“Besides, the pace of the Eredivisie is not as high.”

Would De Ligt be welcome here at Stamford Bridge?

The lad is brilliant already and is on the verge of becoming a top-class defender at just 19-years of age, so if Sarri was willing to spend the big money and fight off the rest of Europe to land the lads signature, then yes he would be more than welcome at Stamford Bridge.

He has a big, bright future and spending £60 million to acquire his services would be a great long-term investment, as he has many years at the top of the game.

So yes he would be more than welcome at Stamford Bridge.
