The 25-year-old centre-back has progressed steadily in the Premier League and has established himself as one of the best in his position in the division.

According to a recent report in The Mirror, Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton all are interested in the Dutchman.

Wilkins believes that Van Dijk would be a good signing for his former club Chelsea.

“Well, Van Dijk has had a fantastic time since he has come down Celtic, almost looked a little bit of a snip for what Southampton got him for,” said Wilkins on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (broadcast from 6am, December 2, 2016).

“He has improved and he looks a very good defender. He would bring on the youngsters coming through as well because he is excellent on the communication side of stuff. He would be a perfect fit.”

Chelsea are going strong in the Premier League at the moment and are in genuine contention of the title.
