Tottenham Hotspur: Fans gutted with latest transfer news as Hakim Ziyech joins Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur: Fans gutted with latest transfer news as Hakim Ziyech joins Chelsea

Chelsea have announced that they have agreed a deal to sign Ajax attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech (via @ChelseaFC).

The Moroccan international still needs to agree to personal terms, but should that happen, he will officially join the club in the summer ahead of the 2020/21 campaign. According to Sky Sports, the Blues will pay £33.6m for the 26-year-old’s services, although that could rise to £36.7m depending on add-ons.

Tottenham Hotspur were previously linked with a move for the former Twente man and their former player Rafael van der Vaart even urged Daniel Levy to sign the playmaker in the January transfer window (Express).

However, no move ever materialised from Spurs, who ended up signing Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes last month, whilst also making Giovani Lo Celso’s loan move permanent. Ziyech has been a vital player for Ajax in recent times; this season alone he has managed to score eight goals and provide an impressive 21 assists in just 30 appearances in all competitions (Transfermarkt).
