Chelsea have announced that they have reached an agreement with Ajax to sign winger Hakim Ziyech in the summer, subject to personal terms.

Ziyech is an exciting player and he has already proven his worth over recent years competing in Eredivisie and the Champions League.
He is a guy who Chelsea wanted in January, but Ajax were keen to keep him at the club to help them for the rest of the season. So the deal seems like a good bet for all involved, and quite the bargain.
Chelsea posted a brief player profile on their website today and they have some very complimentary words to describe him!
They describe him as being a left footed attacker that is comfortable on the right or coming inside.
This next segment though is what really stands out…
‘The 26-year old possesses awareness on the ball, is technically capable of executing very difficult passes to break down compact defences, and is also a set-piece specialist, particularly with vicious inswingers from the right side. He has been a prolific scorer throughout his career, with over 100 goals for club and country.’
Time to get excited Chelsea fans!
