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."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
