Midfielder opens door to possible Chelsea transfer deal in January

Hakim Ziyech has refused to rule out the possibility of leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Ziyech is easily one of the most gifted wingers that the club have right now and can be world class on his day – but he cant break into that starting eleven on a weekly basis.

His performances have not been great this season and he is certainly a player that Graham Potter will not miss should he depart the club – which is why there has been so much speculation about the man over the past few weeks.

When asked by NOS if he will move back to the Eredivisie in the January window, Ziyech said after Morocco’s 0-0 draw with Croatia on Wednesday: ‘It’s hard to say, difficult to say.

‘We don’t know what will happen in the winter. It’s football, so it’s difficult to say.’

Ziyech was also urged to leave Chelsea by Netherlands legend Marco van Basten last month, who also claimed that the Premier League club have too many players in their squad.

‘It is sad and a shame. Ziyech is a great player. We have to see someone like that, we watch TV for such a player and we come to the stadium,’ Van Basten told Ziggo Sport.

‘It is a pity for the whole of football that he is on the bench. If these kinds of players do not get minutes, it is not good for football.

‘There should actually be a rule that clubs can only have a certain number of players.

‘So they [Chelsea ] have way too many and that actually makes football less interesting. A player like Ziyech could just play at another club and entertain the fans.’
