Ziyech transfer just the start of Chelsea’s spending. Club still interested in Sancho. Also keeping tabs on Ziyech’s teammate, Onana (to replace Caballero.)
Ajax manager ten Hag on Ziyech to Chelsea: “A transfer was coming, we expected it to happen. And I actually already expected this 1 or 2 years earlier. We are just happy that we will still have him until the end of the season.”
Hakim Ziyech has created 421 goalscoring chances for teammates in the Dutch Eredivisie since his Ajax debut in September 2016; 134 more than any other player. Chelsea are edging closer and closer to signing Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech after agreeing personal terms with the winger, it has been claimed. Chelsea has been chasing the Morocco international for several months, with manager Frank Lampard a big admirer of the 26-year-old.
Hakim Ziyech deal should be confirmed by both clubs (Ajax and Chelsea) this weekend, despite the fact the January transfer window closed just under a fortnight ago.
