Chelsea Agree £33m Deal To Sign Ajax's Hakim Ziyech by ogbiwa: 7:12pm On Feb 14
Chelsea have reached an agreement with Ajax to sign the Dutch club's winger Hakim Ziyech this summer.

The 26-year-old was a January transfer target for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Ajax were unwilling to sell the Morocco international in the transfer window as they chase the Eredevisie title.

Ajax have confirmed they have accepted a fee of 40m euros (£33.3m) - potentially rising to 44m euros (£36.6m) - with the move subject to Ziyech agreeing personal terms.

The signing is the first by Lampard following
Chelsea's transfer ban.

The Premier League side were linked with a number of signings in January, including Paris St-Germain forward Edinson Cavani and Napoli striker Dries Mertens.

Lampard's apparent frustration with a lack of new arrivals is understood to have stemmed from clubs refusing to sell rather than any problems with Chelsea's recruitment strategy.

Ziyech contributed to three Ajax goals in a 4-4 draw against Chelsea during their Champions League group game in November.

The most memorable came when the winger's free-kick from near the corner flag curled over Kepa Arrizabalaga's head and hit the far post before rebounding in off the Chelsea goalkeeper for an own goal.

Ziyech played the final 10 minutes of Ajax's 3-0 win against Vitesse in the Dutch Cup on Wednesday, as he returned from a calf injury.

After the game, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag said: "I am not surprised by the news about Ziyech.

I know that our players are very popular with the big clubs in Europe. That is just great.

"I have known for a long time what Hakim wants. He has a picture in mind. He knows exactly which clubs he finds interesting and which not. Chelsea is a fantastic club. When it is final, I am very happy for Hakim, and I am very proud of it."

Good signing for the blues. He can play anywhere along the front 3 in a 4-2-3-1 formation. And in my opinion he was Ajax's best player last season regardless of how well Tadic played
