Chelsea have reached an agreement with Ajax over a summer move for in-demand playmaker Hakim Ziyech, with the Blues confirming the news via their official Twitter account.

The news was initially confirmed by the Dutch heavyweights on Twitter but the Blues have now provided an update which will surely spark celebrations among the fans all over the globe.

Reputed Dutch source De Telegraaf previously claimed that a verbal agreement over a summer deal had taken place between Ajax and Chelsea but all doubts are now cleared after official confirmation on Twitter from the Blues.

The Moroccan international, Ziyech is a left-footed attacker who is comfortable playing off the right flank and coming inside, as he has often done in recent years to such devastating effect for Ajax, or on the left to attack with width and deliver into the box.
