English club, Chelsea FC, have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Moroccan sensation, Hakim Ziyech from Ajax, according to reports.

The London club had a ban imposed on its transfer transactions in 2019 although the ban was lifted last month.

Frank Lampard's team failed to sign a player in the January transfer window, though, amid rumors the 26-year-old was top of the English coach's wishlist.

However, aaccording to De Telegraaf, Chelsea have a verbal agreement in place with the Dutch champions to sign Ziyech at the end of the season.

The report claims that advanced negotiations have taken place in the last 24 hours and Chelsea have agreed to pay a €45 million (£37.8m) for the Morocco international.

Hakim Ziyech has already played against Chelsea twice this season and has been a key figure at Ajax over the past two seasons with 29 goals and 45 assists in 78 appearances.
