Ajax star Donny Van de Beek has been compared to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard and told to consider joining the Blues.
That is despite long-term interest from Manchester United who are considering a summer swoop for the Dutchman.
Van de Beek remained in Amsterdam last summer while several of his team-mates headed for pastures new.
Ajax have said they will allow the versatile 23-year-old to move on should the right offer come in.
And Jesper Gronkjaer, who played at Stamford Bridge alongside Frank Lampard, reckons Van de Beek should consider a switch to west London.
"I wouldn’t be surprised to see him at Real Madrid or Barcelona but I would rather see him at a club just below that," the Dane told Goal.
"For his style of play alone, clubs like Tottenham or Chelsea would be a better fit.
"They are still top clubs and he is more like Frank Lampard, that kind of player. He is a big guy, box-to-box and takes good long shots, but he is not as technically gifted as other players that have come from Ajax. He is a player you can always get a certain level from."
Real Madrid have also been linked with Van de Beek's signature as have Juventus.
