Hakim Ziyech suffers transfer heartbreak as Chelsea exit cancelled for second time

Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech’s £8million move to Saudi Arabia side Al-Nassr has collapsed.

According to club sources in the Gulf, the 30-year-old could not agree final terms over a three-year contract.

It remains to be seen if Al-Nassr will reignite their interest later in the transfer window after club officials were left disappointed amid reports of a failed medical.

Ziyech remains surplus the requirements at Stamford Bridge and could return a frustrated figure when Mauricio Pochettino’s squad begin pre-season.

Chelsea were willing to accept a low fee from Cristiano Ronaldo‘s Al-Nassr to see their unhappy winger leave west London.

Ziyech, who was signed for £33m from Ajax in 2020, played 24 times last season but the majority of his appearances came from the bench. He still has two years left on his contract.

He also saw a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain collapse in January.

Chelsea will now sound out alternative clubs as destinations for Ziyech. Noni Madueke and Christopher Nkunku are among the players recently signed to replace the Moroccan.
