As per heavy reports coming in this afternoon, Ajax attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech is close to becoming a Chelsea player in the summer, with a 45 million deal verbally agreed between the two sides.
Chelsea wanted to sign the Moroccan international last month but Ajax were not prepared to let him go then.
However, they will let him make the move in the summer, and personal terms are expected to be agreed in the coming days ahead of the deal completion at the end of the season.
