Atletico Madrid want Ziyech to replace Vitolo

Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in landing the signature of Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea during this summer's transfer window.



The Moroccan was the Blues' first purchase of the summer but he has struggled to nail down a regular starting position.

Since Thomas Tuchel took charge in January, his game time has reduced and he has made only two starts in the Premier League.

According to Fichajes, Ziyech is already assessing his options and may push for a new challenge away from the Blues this summer.

Atletico are said to hold a keen interest and they consider him as a possible replacement for Vitolo whom they plan to offload.

Aside from Atletico, Juventus have also been credited with an interest in Ziyech, who has netted only two goals from 22 games for the Blues.

The former Ajax man was purchased for around £33m last year and the Blues have not shown any indication that they may sell him.

Their stance may however change, should the player fail to make a significant impact from now until the end of the season.
