De Visser told Voetbal International: “On Daley Sinkgraven, I find it very difficult to say anything because I’ve agreed with Chelsea that I will not speak about the talents that are on our list. I follow him and that goes beyond watching a game from time to time.”

De Visser also said that he looks for five things namely passing, technique, dribbling anticipation and vision. It is also important to have the ability to read the game and see the right solution.

De Vissor also added that “Physically, has he got speed, power, endurance and mental dexterity? He absolutely has to have the will to win.”

Even though, both the premier league giants are ready to fight for the signature, Ajax are considered as the favorites to sign the rising talent. Sinkgraven has revealed his desire his desire to stay in his home country for some more time before leaving to England. He feels that it is too early for him to go to foreign country. He also expressed his happiness just because many big clubs are interested in him. But on a shorter run, he is destined to be in Netherlands and might prefer Ajax which has a brilliant set-up. It is very evident by the fact that Ajax manager Frank de Boer is already keen on signing the midfielder.
