Chelsea plan talks with Ziyech over transfer issues


Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech is set to be given the green light to move to the Stamford Bridge on 30 June, according to reports.

The 27-year-old attacker is set to become Frank Lampard’s first signing as Chelsea manager after a £36.6million deal was agreed with his club Ajax earlier this year.

Chelsea were concerned that Hakim Ziyech would be forced to stay at Ajax after FIFA said player contracts should reflect the extended 2019/20 campaign.

But the Eredivisie is expected to cancel the remainder of their season after the Netherlands extended a ban on all important events until 1 September.

The coronavirus crisis has forced all sport to be suspended, but the Daily Mail report that Ziyech will be free to complete his transfer move to Chelsea as first planned.

But Chelsea want to speak with the playmaker and his team, because the player will not be able to represent the club in what is left of their campaign.

The Premier League has extended the league season indefinitely and are hopeful the postponed matches can be played during the summer.

Chelsea intend to discuss with Ziyech when he should join his new team-mates, with Frank Lampard’s team waiting for the green light to return to training.

The summer window might be moved to accommodate matches and that could effect when Ziyech’s move will officially go through.

The blues will talk to Ziyech about his future when further details surrounding the Premier League’s plans for the remainder of the season become clearer.
