Chelsea agree to sign winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax
Ajax Amsterdam have agreed to sell Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech to Chelsea for an initial 40 million euros ($43.41 million) in the close season, the Dutch club said on Thursday. Ziyech, who helped Ajax win the league and Dutch Cup double last season, has seen his stock rise further this campaign with eight goals and 18 assists in the league and Champions League.
Chelsea agreed to sign winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax at the end of the season on Thursday for 40 million euros ($43 million).
Ziyech was a key player for Ajax in its run to the Champions League semifinals last season, often cutting inside from the right flank. He also won the Dutch league last year and was Dutch player of the season in 2018.
He has scored 49 goals in 160 competitive games for Ajax since arriving from Twente in 2016.
Ajax could receive another 4 million euros ($4.3 million) for Ziyech "with variable factors," the Dutch club said.
