Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech in the summer – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are thrilled with the speculation.
According to De Telegraaf, Dutch giants Ajax are likely to lose their attacking midfielder to Chelsea at the end of the season and he will make a move to Stamford Bridge.
It is understood that the Blues have reached a verbal agreement in the last 24 hours for the Morocco international, although teams could still try hijack the move.
The report explains that his move to West London would cost around £37.9million (€45million).
Ziyech has been with Ajax making a name for himself in the Eredivisie since 2016 and he’s proven on the European stage his quality, including helping his team to the Champions League semi-finals last season.
The 26-year-old likes to be deployed in a central role behind the forward to help link up play in the final third and can play out wide too.
He is a left-footed playmaker that has a staggering 21 assists in 29 games across all competitions this season, as well as eight goals himself too.
Frank Lampard’s side would be bringing in a major creative threat if they did land the African star and he looks like he would lit up the Premier League.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe that Ziyech would be an excellent addition to the squad and are excited by the speculation surrounding him.
Here are some Chelsea fans on Ziyech:
This is great news! Id like Odoi to go the other way on a two year loan there’s something about Ajax’s acadamy that makes them churn out top class players.
