Dutch newspaper Eindhovens Dagblad reports (via Inside Futbol) that PSV Eindhoven have made the purchase of Chelsea midfielder and loanee Marco van Ginkel a priority in the summer transfer window. Unfortunately for them, apparently no transfer can take place until Antonio Conte can assess the situation, and that won't happen until after the European Championships.

Van Ginkel started the year on loan at Stoke City, but after seeing his minutes dry up, switched to PSV instead in the winter transfer window.  He's enjoyed great success in the Eredivisie, scoring eight goals and assisting one in 13 matches while helping the team to the league title.  Van Ginkel's contract with Chelsea runs out in two years but it's believed that he wants to stay at PSV.

Marco is the first and thus far only Vitesse academy player (he joined them as a 7-year-old) to have made his way to Chelsea since the beginning of the partnership between the two clubs. He's clearly a talented midfielder, which is a position of need for the Blues, but whether he can translate that talent into Premier League success remains to be seen.  Surely, given their success together, the only question here is whether it's a straight up sale or just another loan for Van Ginkel.
