Breaking: Chelsea sign Hakim Ziyech

Chelsea will sign Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech this summer for €45 million (£37.8 million).

Born in Holland, the Moroccan international has been on fire in recent seasons. He joined Ajax in 2016, and has since scored 48 and assisted 82 goals.

The move away from Ajax does not come as a surprise to many. Ziyech has been linked to European giants in the past two seasons, with the main questions being when and where as opposed to why.

Chelsea faced Ajax twice during the UEFA Champions League group stage, including a 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge where Ziyech had two assists. It seems that the 26-year-old Morocco international has convinced Frank Lampard of his talents.
