Ziyech could leave Stamford Bridge in January

There is fresh speculation that Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech could leave Chelsea in the January transfer window.

The 29-year old was heavily linked with a move away from the club in the summer, with both Manchester United and AC Milan amongst those interested in him.

The Serie A club went so far as to offer £22 million for his services, but this was rejected.

Ziyech was Frank Lampard’s first signing as manager, but struggled for game time under his successor Thomas Tuchel and completed 90 minutes just nine times last season.

Tuchel has since been replaced by Graham Potter, but, so far, he has showed no more inclination to use the winger than his predecessor in the job.

Milan have not ruled out reviving their interest in him, and whilst Erik ten Hag faced resistance from within the club at his attempts to reunite with a player he managed at Ajax, he may feel inclined to try again.
