Hakim Ziyech's Thomas Tuchel relationship 'broken' as Chelsea 'put star on transfer list'

3 mins read


Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel’s relationship with Hakim Ziyech is reportedly ‘broken’, with the midfielder now ‘officially on the transfer list’. The Moroccan, who arrived from Ajax for £33million in the summer, has enjoyed a difficult first season, under both Tuchel and former boss Frank Lampard.

The 28-year-old has scored just six goals and assisted four in 39 appearances in all competitions, with one of those being the winning goal in this season’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

But, on the whole, Ziyech’s first campaign in west London has been disappointing.

It now appears he is out of Tuchel’s long-term plans, which opens the door for an exit as early as this summer.

Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that Ziyech’s relationship with his German manager is ‘broken’ and the player is ‘officially on the transfer list’.

They state that Serie A side Napoli are interested in the former Ajax man.

Meanwhile, the Blues are reportedly keen on signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and could offer a ‘player plus cash deal’.

The current Champions League holders are thought to have approached Dortmund over whether they would be interested in taking striker Tammy Abraham as part of the deal.

Chelsea are keen to get Abraham off the books after failing to impress boss Thomas Tuchel since he replaced Frank Lampard in January.

And they would be reportedly willing to ship the striker off to Dortmund irrespective of a deal for Haaland.

Those at the top of the Blues hierarchy are exploring whether a slightly cheaper deal is viable.

Bringing Haaland to Stamford Bridge would smash the current wage structure at the club.

Scoring 27 goals in 28 Bundesliga games, Haaland could be the final piece to propel Chelsea to their sixth Premier League title.

And, now that Ziyech is rumoured to be ready to leave the club, could he be another player Chelsea attempt to include in a swap deal to lure Haaland to Stamford Bridge?
