PSG in talks to sign Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech in loan-to-buy deal
Aris Saint-Germain are in talks to sign Hakim Ziyech on loan from Chelsea with an option for a permanent transfer.
The Blues are ready to let their 29-year-old winger leave the club in January after signing several strikers including Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke and Joao Felix.
It remains unclear whether a purchase option will be included as talks continue, but all parties are confident that a deal for Ziyech to stay in Paris for at least six months will be reached.
The World Cup semi-finalist has been keen to leave Chelsea for almost a year after losing his place under Thomas Tuchel and he only recently regained it due to an injury crisis in west London .
Chelsea have attracted interest from Newcastle but have refused to allow the Morocco international to bolster a Premier League rival.
Meanwhile, Everton, Roma and AC Milan all tracked Ziyech in January after Manchester United expressed interest in signing him this summer.
Ziyech’s current contract at Chelsea expires in 2025, raising the prospect of a possible return this summer.
