Hakim Ziyech ‘to leave Chelsea permanently as Galatasaray look to sign Moroccan winger after productive loan spell’


Hakim Ziyech looks set to stay at Galatasaray permanently after a successful loan spell at the Turkish club from Chelsea.

The Blues spent £34m to sign the Moroccan winger from Ajax in 2020, but despite winning the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup with the London club, he has struggled to fit into the changing nature of Chelsea’s squad.

In August 2023, Ziyech joined Galatasaray on a season-long loan with the potential to make the move permanent.

The Evening Standard reports that the Turkish club are keen to take the opportunity to sign the 31-year-old on a full-time basis.

It is unclear how much of their £34m Chelsea will get by selling Ziyech back, but it is beneficial to their ambitions in the summer transfer window and beyond.

A report in January claimed that Galatasaray were considering ending Ziyech’s loan early due to injury problems – but that all seems to have gone away and they were happy with his performances towards the end of the campaign.

Galatasaray are at the top of the Turkish Super League, six points clear of second-placed Fenerbahce with three games remaining in the season, including a crucial clash against the chasers on May 19.

Ziyech has eight goals in 21 appearances for the club this season.

He scored 14 goals in 107 Chelsea appearances but fell out of favor under Graham Potter and saw him collapse on loan to PSG on deadline day in January 2023 via a trip to the French capital.

Chelsea missed calls from the French champions at 10.46pm, 10.48pm, 10.49pm and 10.50pm – and sent unsigned documents at 10.55pm and 10.58pm – ultimately leaving the paperwork backlogged.

Earlier this season, Galatasaray were declared the winners of the Turkish Super Cup after Fenerbahce lost the clash by fielding the under-19 team and leaving the pitch just two minutes into the game.

Fenerbahce threatened to withdraw from the Turkish league as a result of the treatment by the referees, but club members voted against their exit.
