Southampton are hoping to sign Ben Gibson in a £30m deal, according to The Sun. If this rumour true he could be VVD replacement 

£30M for Ben Gibson, football has finally gone mad. :lol:

That's how it is now, feel sorry for the small clubs trying to buy players that 2 seasons ago would of been £10M and are now going for 20-25M

Exactly and that's why Van Dijk is going for £60-70M when he gets sold. Smaller clubs just can't get decent replacements at reasonable prices, unless they take a gamble on an unknown youngster or get lucky with the incoming player's contract situation but most PL players cost a fortune these days. Domestic transfers between PL clubs have been crazy this summer with players like Michael Keane and Ben Gibson moving for tens of millions and Swansea fleecing £50M for Sigurdsson.

I can see transfers inside the PL becoming even more rare because there's just no value anymore, much better options for cheaper prices around the continent. This, in turn will raise the prices of homegrown English players even further so it's a big problem.

I'm reading that it'll probably take over £30m for Drinkwater. Just think about that for a minute...😨

Yeah, that's right up there with a seriously inflated price too but honestly I don't see many better options out there because Chelsea need homegrown players to fill up the numbers. At the moment there are just three HG players at the club (Cahill, Cesc, Moses) and the remaining non-HG places are better filled with higher priority signings than a backup CM.

Drinkwater is not a bad option for a squad player but he's not a £30M+ player either, it's a dilemma.

I still do not believe we are gonna spend that much on a CB when we are set in that position already. I bet he will go to City. 

Unless Christensen is yet to go and Azpi and Rüdiger are supposed to cover the wings...

Christensen's dad has confirmed that Conte told him andreas is in his plans. Rüdiger and Azpi can both cover the wings and are decent options but i am pretty sure Conte knows that their best position is CB.

No sense in spending that much on CB when we need wingbacks and midfielder. 

I dont understand why we dont put these 60m that are supposed for Vdv plus whatever we would be giving for Drinkwater in a bid for someone like Kovacic. Quality young midfielder who would improve our 11 greatly. Just imagine Kante-Bakayoko-Kovacic midfield. 

And for our attackers, we could add Lanzini who is quality. 

But instead we are lurking around ok players and players where we are already quite filled.

Don't forget the "Sandro money".  

Surely, any other LWB that we go for won't be as expensive.  VVD + Sandro = 120ish M?  Even in today's ridiculous market, that's a pretty good LWB + RWB + CM

go all out for him. need to make a statement. First i was of the opinion that we would not need him but tbf with how disjointed our defence looked today after cahill was off, we need one. and obviously once we have one defender and one of our 3 midfielders out, we have to tinker around and another injury or suspension and we are stripped to the bone in this position. also he is probably an upgrade on quality on any of our defenders.

Chelsea are considering a bid for central defender Virgil van Dijk, who has asked to leave Southampton. #CFC (Telegraph)

Pff...if I was to believe media, the amount of time we spent considering to buy Van Dijk, we could've developed a clone from his genes, made him grow faster and surpas his original...I am perfectly satisfied with Zouma and Christensen now, dump that money on a midfielder and winger.
