English premier league club, Chelsea has agreed a deal with Dutch club, FC Ajax to sign Moroccan winger, Hakim Ziyech at the end of the season.
The deal was announced in a statement on Chelsea’s website today.
The statement read:
“Chelsea Football Club has reached an agreement with Ajax to sign Hakim Ziyech this summer. The move is subject to the player agreeing personal terms and he will remain at the Dutch club for the rest of this season.
“A Moroccan international, Ziyech is a left-footed attacker who is comfortable playing off the right flank and coming inside, as he has often done in recent years to such devastating effect for Ajax, or on the left to attack with width and deliver into the box.
“The 26-year-old possesses awareness on the ball, is technically capable of executing very difficult passes to break down compact defences, and is also a set-piece specialist, particularly with vicious inswingers from the right side. He has been a prolific scorer throughout his career, with over 100 goals for club and country.”
Ziyech has faced Chelsea this season in the Uefa Champions league, scoring a spectacular goal from the corner flag against his new owners.
