Chelsea could reportedly make a move for Ajax attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech during the upcoming transfer window this summer.

The West London club were expected to improve their team in January having had their transfer suspension overturned on appeal, however, it was ultimately a quiet month for the Blues.

Premier League heavyweights are being tipped to spend heavily for the upcoming summer’s transfer window, though, and according to the Evening Standard, Ajax forward Hakim Ziyech is one of a number of players linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge.

The 26-year-old Ajax midfielder has played a vital role in Ajax winning a league and cup double last campaign in addition to reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League, founding back of the net 21 times and providing 24 assists in the process.

The Morocco international has again been in stunning form this campaign, founding back of the net eight times and setting up 21 more in 29 appearences for the Dutch giants.

The newspaper report suggests that Morocco international midfielder is being considered as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund’s attacker Jadon Sancho due to the number of teams are interested in securing the services of the England international.

Lampard will allegedly have as much as £150m to spend on new players ahead of next campaign.
