Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech, who is set to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window. The Moroccan international has struggled to make an impact since his arrival at Stamford Bridge from Ajax in 2020.
According to a report from Jeunes Footeux, Ziyech has received interest from a number of clubs, including Tottenham, West Ham, and Fulham in the Premier League, as well as La Liga clubs.
The report also suggests that he is still in contact with PSG, who were close to signing him after his impressive World Cup campaign, but the deal fell through due to incorrect documentation being sent by Chelsea, which resulted in the required signatures not being present in time before the deadline.
With Ziyech ‘determined‘ to leave Chelsea this summer, the club will be looking to offload him rather than risk losing him for free when his contract expires in 2025.
Tottenham, who are currently undergoing a managerial change, could provide a fresh start for the winger who has struggled for game time at Chelsea.
Ziyech’s potential move to Tottenham will depend on the club’s new manager and his plans for the upcoming season. For now Cristian Stellini has taken over as interim manager until the end of the season following Conte’s sacking.
Meanwhile, the club are set to continue their search for a replacement for the Italian with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique, and Julian Nagelsmann linked with the job.
However, now that Fabio Paratici, who was heading their search for Conte’s replacement, has stepped down from his role following FIFA’s decision to extend his ban globally – it’s yet to be seen what implications that has on the managerial candidates.
