The Dutch media have reported that PSV coach Guus Hiddink met with Chelsea.
The Dutch media have reported that PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink met with Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon this week.
PSV have a special relationship with the big-spending Premiership leaders and it is understood that discussions took place prior to Chelsea's 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge.
Hiddink watched the game and is known to be seeking midfield reinforcements for next term, with Johann Vogel and Mark van Bommel poised to leave under the Bosman Ruling.
Chelsea are reportedly pleased with how their tie-up with the Dutch club is progressing, as Brazilian defender Alex is one of the players reported to have been purchased with support from The Blues.
Rumours are rife that Chelsea would like to strike a similar deal involving another Brazilian, Santos wonder-kid Robinho, but a midfielder will also be on Hiddink's shopping list.
Holland's classy winger Arjen Robben left Eindhoven for Chelsea last year.
