Chelsea Agree Deal for Ziyech
By Samuel Victor Akpan
Chelsea and Ajax have reached an agreement for the transfer of Moroccan Hackim Ziyech this summer.
The deal is subject to the player agreeing personal terms with the London club and is reportedly worth £36.6m.
The 26-year-old becomes Frank Lampard’s first signing since the transfer ban on the club was lifted.
Ziyech was a top target for Chelsea this past winter but the Eredivisie club were unwilling to let him leave due to their quest to win the Dutch title.
The winger was in sensational form as Ajax drew 4-4 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge during their Champions League clash last year, famously scoring a stunning long range free kick.
He has scored over a 100 goals for both club and country throughout his career.
