Van Dijk only joined Celtic from FC Groningen last summer, but he has been earning rave reviews north of the border since his move.
Reports in England and Holland have claimed that Arsenal and Manchester City have been keeping close tabs on him.
And 22-year-old van Dijk admits he is happy to see the links, as he believes it is a sign that things are going well.
Van Dijk told Dutch football magazine Voetbal International: "It's fantastic that such top teams are being linked to you.
"I haven't spoken with anyone yet, but it's always a good sign, but I am enjoying it here at Celtic. The first six months were fantastic."
The defender has refused to completely rule out a winter move though, and added: "It's a cliche, but in football everything is possible.
"What I know is that I am in a good place here at Celtic and that feels excellent."
