Hakim Ziyech’s Chelsea career could be drawing to a close with Paris Saint-Germain in talks with the Blues to land the winger.
Ziyech joined the Blues from Ajax in 2020 having starred in the Dutch’s team stunning march to the 2019 Champions League semi-finals.
But Ziyech has failed to sustain a run in the Stamford Bridge first-team since signing for the club despite helping them win the Champions League in 2021.
With the Blues having already spent £200m on transfers in January alone, Graham Potter will now be looking to offload some stars who could now drop down the pecking order.
PSG are keen to take advantage according to L’Equipe, with the French side enjoying very progressive talks with Chelsea over the Morocco international who starred at the recent World Cup in Qatar, reaching the semi-finals.
Although no agreement has yet been reached it is thought talks will continue to more at a rapid pace.
The report adds that Ziyech’s preference would be on a move to PSG to help kick-start his career.
