Borussia Dortmund are being linked with signing a Chelsea player on loan – and some fans of the German club are really excited about the transfer rumour.
Bild reports that Bundesliga giants Dortmund want to sign Hakim Ziyech on loan from Chelsea when the January transfer window opens.
Ziyech, who cost the Blues £33million, is still trying to find his very best form during his second season at Stamford Bridge.
The 28-year-old attacker has only shown in snippets for Chelsea the kind of high levels he was consistently performing at for ex-club Ajax.
Dortmund’s links to Ziyech come at an interesting time.
90min claims this week that the left-footed attacker is seeking a move away from Chelsea in the next transfer window and the current Premier League leaders won’t stand in his way.
Dortmund fans would welcome Chelsea struggler Ziyech
A selection of Dortmund supporters on social media love the idea of watching Ziyech play for them.
The right-winger could fit nicely into the system of the German club, who no longer have Jadon Sancho after selling him to Manchester United in the summer.
Ziyech is trying to fit into one of the two attacking positions behind a central striker at Chelsea, but can’t quite cement a spot in Thomas Tuchel’s XI.
His first touch is outrageous, plus his vision is a major part of his game. Unfortunately, he’s finding no real consistency when it comes to the final third of the pitch.
Here are some Dortmund fans that would love to take Ziyech on loan in the New Year:
Should Blues offload him?
If you consider all the competitions Chelsea are still in, keeping Ziyech around the camp makes sense. However, Tuchel surely won’t want an individual who’s actively looking to depart.
Tuchel expressed his faith in the attacker last month by explaining he’ll remain patient with him in his bid to regain top form. In addition, Chelsea’s manager hailed him in the summer for his pre-season displays.
Reports do suggest that Ziyech has grown fed up with his situation, though.
