Chelsea to bid for Ajax fullback Van der Wiel

Ajax full-back Gregory van der Wiel is in the sights of Chelsea.

The News of the World says Martin Jol, who has snubbed Fulham to remain at Ajax, has been told he needs to offload players if he wants to strengthen this summer.

Luis Suarez looks set to remain at the club and now Jol will now be open to offers for talented defender Van der Wiel, whose move to Bayern Munich broke down at the 11th hour.

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti wants to strengthen his defence and has registered an interest in Van der Wiel, who will be allowed to move from Ajax at that right price.
