AFC Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag has confirmed that the club is working on a deal to sell Hakim Ziyech who is heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, with multiple reliable sources claiming that a deal is close.

Dutch outlet, De Telegraaf said Chelsea have verbally agreed a €45m deal to sign the Moroccan in the summer, while Telegraph UK reported yesterday that Chelsea's bid in January failed to convince Ajax to sell the 26-year-old last month but are still interested in completing the deal this summer.

Ajax head coach Ten Hag said he has been waiting for this to happen, but he's happy to have Ziyech until the end of the season.

“Ziyech to Chelsea? A transfer was coming, we expected it to happen,” Ten Hag told Fox Sport.

“And I actually already expected this 1 or 2 years earlier. And each time it was: ‘wow, he stayed again’. We are just happy that we will still have him until the end of the season”

Ten Hag's comment suggests that a deal to take Hakim Ziyech to Stamford Bridge is close to completion.
