Hakim Ziyech set to join Chelsea


Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech at the end of the season

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has spoken regularly throughout this season about the club’s need to find a long-term replacement for Eden Hazard, and it appears now that they have their man in Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech.

Hazard had one year remaining on his Chelsea contract when he agreed a move to Real Madrid last summer for a fee that could reportedly rise to a club-record transfer of £130m.

Finding an adequate replacement for the Belgian is now the club’s priority after their transfer ban was lifted ahead of the January transfer window.
