Chelsea news: Exciting defender is open to January move

CHELSEA ace Ian Maatsen would be “very keen” to join reported suitors Man City if they were to launch a move for his signature,

Maatsen is a lad that Mauricio Pochettino had used in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season after the Dutch lad had an impressive pre-season with the club.

There was alot of interest in the Dutchman this summer, with the likes of Burnley and Newcastle United just two clubs that were reportedly interested in a deal for the defender, but in the end, he stayed put as he wants to fight for his place in the side.

we are keen to tie Maatsen down to a new contract at Stamford Bridge as his future at the club depends on whether or not he signs a new contract, but it now seems that he is open to the idea of leaving the club.

The treble-winners have been widely linked with a potential move for the 21-year-old, who is currently out of favour at Stamford Bridge despite impressing Mauricio Pochettino in pre-season.

He has recently seen his deal extended until June 2025 after the club activated a 12-month clause in his current agreement, But a well-placed source has told Football Insider that Maatsen wants to play first-team football more regularly.

Look, he will probably sign that new contract as he wants to prove himself at the club, but at the end of the day, if a club makes a big offer in January or at the end of the season, the Board will allow him to leave.
