According to reports by French outlet JeunesFooteux, Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea during the upcoming summer transfer window. Though, Spurs have to contend with teams like West Ham, Fulham, PSG, Real Betis, Fenerbahce, and Besiktas, among others.
He was almost on his way out of Stamford Bridge during the winter transfer window, but his loan move to PSG fell through at the last minute.
Spurs are still aiming to improve their roster for next season despite the fact that their management situation is up in the air and the names of Chelsea outcast is going around – Hakim Ziyech has seen little action for Chelsea this season, seeing 19 appearances across all competitions with only one assist to his name.
He reportedly wants to leave Stamford Bridge come summer, and the Blues are said to consider bids between £13 million and £16 million (€15 million and €20 million) for the Moroccan.
Despite having two years left on his contract, Ziyech is anticipated to leave Chelsea at the conclusion of the current campaign. The Blues, who play in West London, are said to be looking to clear salary cap space in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations. After flourishing in the Netherlands with Ajax, Ziyech’s transfer to Chelsea has not gone as planned for either party, and he now needs a fresh start somewhere to revive his career.
Tottenham Hotspur can just be the club, but having not optimally performed in the English first-tier during his time in England – this transfer is a hefty risk by the looks of it. If he replicates his form at Chelsea, he will be just another bench warmer that will be difficult to move on owing to high wages and this is the last thing Spurs’ faithful want at this point…
