Who did Chelsea choose instead of van Dijk?

London Chelsea will try to get other Southampton defenders in person of Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand.

Chelsea have become the favorites amongst bookmakers to sign Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand from Southampton this summer, continuing the search of a new pair of wing-backs.

The Blues’ manager Antonio Conte insisted, that he would continue strengthening his team this summer even after the arrival of four new players to the team since the end of the last season. However, they also aren’t forgetting about the Saints’ defender van Dijk.

The odds on Soares’ transfer to Chelsea is now 7/1 on the website of the British bookmaker Sky Bet. The main competitors of the Blues are Tottenham (9/1). Bertrand’s transfer is evaluated as 9/4, whereas the probability of his transfer to Liverpool is much higher (1/2).
