The London Evening Standard says Van Ginkel‚Äôs agent Karel Jansen today denied quotes attributed to him that suggested he had held positive talks with manager Jose Mourinho.
He said: ‚ÄúNothing is sure. There is interest but it is not the time for all parties to say something about it. A lot of things are being said and written and it‚Äôs a bit chaotic. From our side we are just keeping quiet and we will see what happens.‚ÄĚ
Van Ginkel is highly-rated in Holland and has already earned a cap for the national team. Vitesse Arnhem team-mate Theo Janssen revealed earlier this week that he has told Van Ginkel to make the move to west London should a fee be agreed.
He said: ‚ÄúIf he thinks he‚Äôs ready for the next step, then he must do it. I think he is ready but the step to Chelsea is very big.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs the plan that he‚Äôll join the Chelsea squad, learn a lot and play on a regular basis. It all looks very positive but he must make his own decision. I told him that opportunities like this don‚Äôt come that often and, if you get a chance like this, then you must do it.‚ÄĚ
