BY SAMSON MBII,4TH AUG 2017-The Blues are reportedly optimistic that they are close to acquiring Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Sources says  the reigning Premier League champions are hopeful to acquire Dutchman before the new season commences and have accordingly prepared a £50m bid, which they believe will be accepted.Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is still keen on adding a few more pieces to his already stacked squad, and despite being denied the opportunity to sign the 26-year-old for at least three other times this summer, the English side are rumoured to be so confident of landing Van Dijk that they are planning to include him in their squad to face Burnley in their first match of the season, which is scheduled for next weekend.

Despite acquiring Antonio Rudiger from Roma and calling back Andreas Christensen from loan, Conte wants another experienced centre-back on his roster to reinforce his backline and bolster his side’s chances of winning a quadruple in the forthcoming season.
