Chelsea Football Club have announced that Ajax star Hakim Ziyech has now agreed to personal terms – meaning that the club has signed the winger on a 5 year deal.
On agreeing those terms, Ziyech said: ‘I am delighted and proud to have signed for such a huge club as Chelsea. I am looking forward to next season and hope we can achieve great things together.’
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘We are delighted Hakim will be joining us in the summer, having been a key target of the club’s in this last window. He has consistently been one of the most dangerous attacking players in Europe in recent years, which we saw first-hand in our two games against Ajax in the Champions League.
‘We wish Hakim and Ajax all the best for the rest of the season and look forward to welcoming him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.’
Lampard, who is currently facing an injury crisis will no doubt love to add Ziyech to his squad this coming summer. Moreover, with the likes of Pedro and Willian possibly on the exit route, Chelsea needed a bit of quality in their first team, something Ziyech should provide in plenty.
