By Soccer Blog | Feb 13, 2020

Eredivisie giants Ajax have officially announced that they’ve reached an agreement with Chelsea for the sale of star forward Hakim Ziyech.

When will Ziyech join Chelsea?

Ziyech will officially join Chelsea on July 1, 2020- the beginning of the 2020/2021 league season.

Will Ziyech play the rest of the 19/20 season with Ajax?

Yes- despite the transfer being announced in February 2020, Ziyech will spend the rest of the 2019/20 season with Ajax.

How much did Chelsea pay for Ziyech?

Ajax have announced that the fee is 40 million euros, potentially rising to 44 million euros in add ons.

Who is Frank Lampard’s first signing as Chelsea manager?

Lampard’s first signing as Chelsea manager is Ziyech- the Blues were under a transfer embargo in the summer and didn’t make any signings in the winter window.

Ziyech was a key member of the Ajax squad that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League last season. The Dutch giants sold Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong in the summer to Juve and Barca respectively, and Ziyech’s sale sees another key member of that side leave.
