Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta has struggled to break in to the side at Stamford Bridge and after many seasons out on loan, he now looks set to stay with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, where he played last season on loan. According to The Mirror the French winger will be offered in a swap deal for Arnhem's highly rated youngster Marco Van Ginkel, who Chelsea have been scouting for some time.
The report on Friday claims that The Blues are ready to cut ties with Kakuta and the Dutch club are apparently keen on the deal also. 20-year-old Van Ginkel should be available for around £8 million and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich wants to reduce that fee with Kakuta going to other way, thus gaining his club a bargain signing. Van Ginkel is wanted by a whole host of clubs and Dutch side Ajax are also looking to make an offer this week.
Kakuta signed for Chelsea in 2007 after a controversial deal saw Chelsea recieve a 12-month transfer ban, making supporters wonder whether it was at all worth the hassle as he is now on the verge of leaving The Bridge.
