Agent expects Chelsea to come in for Aax fullback Van der Wiel

Chelsea are preparing an offer for Ajax fullback Gregory van der Wiel.

Real Madrid and Manchester City have also been linked with the 23-year-old, but his representative Hakim Slimani reckons last season's Double winners are favourite to secure his client's signature.

Slimani said: "At the moment he is playing for Ajax and fighting for the championship with four games to go.

"But we will try and look to secure a move for him in the summer. If Bosingwa leaves Chelsea, there will be an opening for Gregory."

Van der Wiel almost joined Bayern Munich last summer, only for the deal to fall through at the last minute.
