Marco van Ginkel: Could be on his way to

Marco van Ginkel says playing in the Premier League is an ambition but he will not talk about his link with Chelsea until after the European Under-21 Championship.

The Vitesse Arnhem star was not involved for Holland in Wednesday night's 3-0 defeat to Spain at Petah Tikva, a result that confirmed the Dutch as runners-up in Group B.

Van Ginkel has been mooted as a candidate to be Jose Mourinho's first signing after his return to the Chelsea hotseat, with Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars saying that he believes his club cannot compete with the Blues in the race for the 20-year-old's signature.

Reports in Holland claim Chelsea have agreed terms, but van Ginkel would not confirm his future plans.

"The Premier League is a very good league, I think every young player wants to play there," van Ginkel told Sky Sports News Radio.

"I know what people want to hear, but I'm not going to say anything about that now.

"I have to focus on this tournament. After that, I will think about my future - not now."

Van Ginkel was able to get a good look at Spain's stylish football as many of Cor Pot's first-choice players sat on the bench. Should the two teams meet again in next Tuesday's final in Jerusalem, the midfielder believes the outcome can be different.

"They have a lot of good players," added van Ginkel. "In the midfield, they play tiki-taka like Spain in the first team, and it's great to watch.

"First we must play against Italy, so maybe we play against Spain again in the final. Today was not so good from our side, but I think we can play better against them."
