Chelsea open talks to get Bundesliga deal done for Dutchman
It has been claimed in the media that CHELSEA are Borussia Dortmund are in talks over a January deal for Dutchman Ian Maatsen.
After an impressive pre-season with the club, Mauricio Pochettino gave the young man some much needed game time in the early stages of the season, and gave him an opportunity to prove himself.
However – over the past few months the Dutchman has found it really hard to get the minutes that he had been hoping for and has spent much of his time watching from the sidelines.
That has led to all sorts of speculation in the media that he may look to leave the club in the January window, either on loan or on a permanent basis, as he seeks to take his career to that next level.
And that move could be to Borussia Dortmund, if a report form Dutch media is to be believed, which claims that the Bundesliga outfit are already in talks with the board over a January deal.
We are said to be looking for a transfer with Maatsen said to be open to the move, though the “conditions” are still just being defined
Maatsen enjoyed a successful loan at Burnley last season as they were promoted back to the Premier League, notching four goals and six assists in 42 appearances across all competitions.
If the reports are true and Maatsen is seeking a move away from the club in the January window, it will be a very wise decision from the lad to make as he needs the minutes to improve and develop.
