Virgil van Dijk: Being linked with a move to the Premier League

The 21-year-old says a number of sides are closely monitoring his situation now that the winter transfer window has opened for business.

The chance to make a move to England could be put to Van Dijk, and he admits to being intrigued by the opportunity.

He is, however, taking nothing for granted and will remain focused on life at Groningen until he is informed that a switch elsewhere has been sanctioned.

"I know certain clubs are following me and that Everton are one of them," Van Dijk told Voetbal International.

"I have heard and read a lot about it and after the winter training camp I will sit down with my agent Henk-Maarten Chin and catch up with where we stand.

"Of course I am flattered by the interest, but I have to make sure I make the best choice for my future career."

Groningen, meanwhile, claim they have no intention of selling during the January window.

General director Hans Nijland said: "I don't expect Virgil to leave. No clubs have made official contact with us regarding a possible deal and therefore we don't need to talk about it."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
