Gronkjaer opens up and announces Dutchman ‘more suited’ to Chelsea ahead of possible move
Jasper Gronkjaer believes Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek would be more suited to Premier League clubs like Chelsea
Beek made a massive impact in Europe last season when he helped Ajax regain the League title for a good few years, and also helped the Dutch giants reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, impressing everyone with their attacking football.
That led to speculation in the media suggesting that Beek would be the latest name to leave the club when the next transfer window opens up, with reports claiming that Madrid had already swooped in and agreed a fee with Ajax about a deal for Beek.
However, no deal has been concluded yet and we were boosted by the players agent after he came out and revealed that there is still an opportunity for a clubs to wrap up a transfer deal.
Now ex-Chelsea star Gronkjaer has opened up and claimed that Van De Beek would be suited to a move to the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea: “I wouldn’t be surprised to see him at Real Madrid or Barcelona but I would rather see him at a club just below that,” Gronkjaer said on the Metro
“For his style of play alone, clubs like Tottenham or Chelsea would be a better fit.
“They are still top clubs and he is more like Frank Lampard, that kind of player. He is a big guy, box-to-box and takes good long shots, but he is not as technically gifted as other Ajax players.
“He is a player you can always get a certain level from.”
Transfer speculation is rife on a daily basis and we are seemingly linked with everyone, but most people believe that van De Beek is a top class act and would be welcome here.
Lets just hope we can win the race for his services.
