Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech is to join English club Chelsea FC, the Amsterdam club announced on Thursday. «Ajax has reached an agreement with Chelsea FC on the transfer of Hakim Ziyech to the English club», the Dutch club announced.

«Ajax have confirmed they have accepted a fee of 40m euros potentially rising to 44m euros with the move subject to Ziyech agreeing personal terms», wrote the BBC.

«The 26-year-old possesses awareness on the ball, is technically capable of executing very difficult passes to break down compact defenses, and is also a set-piece specialist, particularly with vicious inswingers from the right side», wrote Chelsea.

«He has been a prolific scorer throughout his career, with over 100 goals for club and country», the English club added.

For the record, Ziyech’ contract with Ajax is expected to last until 2022. The Moroccan international joined Amsterdam in 2016. Since then, he made 159 appearances with the club and scored 48 goals.
