Marco van Ginkel recently hinted that his time with Chelsea is coming to an end after eight years, with the Blues unlikely to take up the 1-year option in his contract and instead allow him to leave on a free transfer.
PSV would be the obvious next destination for the 28-year-old, and according to Eindhovens Dagblad and Goal, that is precisely what’s likely to happen. Van Ginkel finished the season on a high note and now looks set to sign with PSV to continue his comeback tale.

One loanee whose future is a bit more uncertain is Davide Zappacosta. His current club, Genoa are unlikely to sign him permanently due to the financials involved, but luckily for everyone, his performances this season have caught the eyes of bigger Serie A clubs as well.
Il Secolo IX (via Sport Witness) claim that Zappacosta could return to one of his former clubs, Atalanta, while there is also interest from the two clubs in nearby Milan. There have been no negotiations yet with any of the parties but Chelsea are apparently happy to let him leave for €10m with just one year left on his contract, after signing him for €25m back in 2017.
