Chelsea winger close to Saudi Arabia switch?

Hakim Ziyech news

Ziyech on his way to Saudi?

Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech is close to securing a summer move to the Saudi Pro League, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Morocco international was a fringe player for the Blues last term, and his situation did not change after the World Cup.

He is now expected to pursue a fresh challenge and reports suggest that he could move to the Middle East very soon.

Al-Nassr have opened negotiations with Chelsea to sign him, and they are close to reaching an agreement over a fee.

Meanwhile, Ziyech has given the go-ahead for the transfer and he is excited to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo in Saudi.

Ziyech may not be the only Chelsea player moving to the cash-rich league during the summer.

The likes of Edouard Mendy, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kalidou Koulibaly could also move in the same direction.

Mendy and Koulibaly are open to making the switch, though Aubameyang has yet to agree personal terms with any Saudi side.
