Chelsea are set to sign Ajax defender Gregory van der Wiel as Andre Villas-Boas makes further moves in the transfer market, it has been claimed.

According to talkSPORT, the west London club have agreed a deal worth €32 million for the Holland international, who has previously been linked with Manchester United.

Villas-Boas is known to have been in the market for another full-back and had seen an offer for Porto's Alvaro Periera rejected.

Despite the recent good form of Jose Bosingwa, the Chelsea boss is keen to acquire a top-class right-back and, with Van der Wiel, he is likely to get that.


The 23-year-old has played 24 times for Holland and was a key member of the side that made the final of the 2010 World Cup.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are expected to make another offer for Luka Modric before the close of the transfer window.

Two bids from Chelsea have already been rejected by Tottenham, who have no intention in letting the Croatian move to Stamford Bridge.
