Chelsea and Ajax have confirmed star winger Hakim Ziyech will join the Blues this summer, subject to personal terms.

Ziyech would become Chelsea’s first signing of the summer in a deal reported to be around €44m.

In a tweet confirming the agreement, Ajax said: “Hey Chelsea, you have to believe in his magic. And great things will happen.”

Chelsea attempted to sign Ziyech in January but Ajax were reluctant to lose one of their best assets midway through a tough title race.

Frank Lampard has been a long term admirer of the 26-year-old and would finally be getting his man.

He is expected to bolster the Blues attack with the creativity he offers. This season, Ziyech has continued to put in good numbers for Ajax…as he has been doing since day one.

The Blues confirmed Ziyech has joined on their official website and the Moroccan is expected to replace wide players like Willian and Pedro who would be out of contracts by the end of the season.
