Dutch Under-21 starlet Marco van Ginkel admits he is flattered by links to Chelsea.
Van Ginkel has emerged as one of Holland's best prospects and has played a starring role at the European Under-21 Championship thus far.
Chelsea have a long-term relationship with Vitesse, which would seemingly give them the upper-hand in any potential deal, and they are now said to be showing an interest in 20-year-old van Ginkel.
He told Dutch paper Algemeen Dagblad: "I am not thinking about it [Chelsea interest] right now, but I am really flattered by their interest."
Van Ginkel, who is also a full international with one cap, has come through the youth ranks at the Gelredome and has already played more than 100 games in the Vitesse first-team.
