Chelsea are interested in the signing of Hakim Ziyech from Dutch giants, Ajax this summer, according to the GGFN reports.
The West London club are believed to be among a host of the team from across the Europe who have expressed their admiration of 26-year-old attacking midfielder, who is enjoying yet another impressive season in the Eredivisie.
From 25 appearances for Ajax, Ziyech has score 15 goals. He has also chipped in with a further 15 assists in the process.
The Blues could be on the lookout for added creativity in their starting XI during the upcoming transfer window, with Eden Hazard’s future at the club under scrutiny as the Los Blancos continue to eye a deal.
The possible exit of the Belgian forward could pave the way for Ziyech to arrive. However, Chelsea may face stiff competition from elsewhere.
According to Suddeutsche Zeitung, German champions, Bayern Munich are keen to sign the €35 million-rated attacker, while Premier League trio Everton, Leicester City and Arsenal are also interested to secure his services.
Ajax have once again made headlines in the press eliminating Juventus from the Champions League 1/4 rounds after beating them 1-2 at Allianz Stadium.
Eden Hazard has been on the verge of completing his dream move to Real Madrid following the return of Zinedine Zidane in charge of the Los Blancos and the 26-year-old Ajax forward seems to be an ideal replacement for Belgian superstar.
