Van Ginkel is currently on loan at PSV Eindhoven
Chelsea signed Marco Van Ginkel from Vitesse for £8 million in the summer of 2013, who had just been named the Dutch talent of the year. Despite being rated so high, the midfielder managed to make only two appearances for the club and has been loaned out 5 times in 4 years.
First loan was to Serie A giants AC Milan where he made 18 appearances and upon his return in the summer of 2015 he was again loan to Stoke City in order to get Premier League experience. But the loan was cut short as Stoke bought Giannelli Imbula.
Rather than giving Van Ginkel chances, the Blues once again loaned him to PSV Eindhoven for the first of his spells with the club. He scored 8 goals in 16 appearances in that season and again returned there for the 2016-2017 campaign but was cut short due to injuries.
The player again returned to PSV for this term and has been the most productive of his career, scoring a career high 16 goals in 32 games from midfield position and helping PSV retain the title ahead of rivals Ajax. He was also given the captain’s armband, which is very rare for a loan player.
The 25 year old is set to return to Chelsea this summer but is highly unlikely that he would again like to go on a loan and believes he has earned the chance to prove himself at the parent club. He represents a strong option to add depth in the midfield, as the Blue’s midfield struggled this season.
But the Premier League giants have 38 players on loan and looking to have a clear out of players this summer. Chelsea have put a £10 million price-tag on Marco van Ginkel reports Football London, as they want the money back spend on his signing.
PSV are interested in signing him on a permanent deal.
