Ziyech opens door to Tottenham or Man Utd transfer
Ziyech was wanted by Serie A champions Milan in the summer but a move broke down when it seemed that a deal would be completed.
The Rossoneri now have a sticky relationship with Chelsea as they have frozen Tiemoue Bakayoko out of their plans to prevent themselves buying the France international midfielder out of his loan contract, increasing the probability that the Blues will negotiate elsewhere.
Nevertheless, Milan are hot favourites to land the winger on a loan deal.
Rather than distancing himself from any potential move, though, the 29-year-old has hinted that he is open to a transfer.
He was specifically asked about returning to the Amsterdam club during the January transfer window by NOS, and replied: “It's hard to say, difficult to say. We don't know what will happen in winter. It's football, so it's difficult to say.”
Ziyech’s next destination
Certainly, his performances at Chelsea make it difficult to see another major Premier League making a serious move for him. His form has been erratic and his return of 14 goals and 10 assists in 92 games for the Blues has been somewhat disappointing given the investment that was made in him.
Furthermore, it appears that Manchester United’s leading target is PSV winger Cody Gakpo, who is wanted to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, whose sensational exit has blown a hole in the Red Devils’ squad. Nevertheless, this also assures that the Old Trafford side are in the market for additional attacking talent.
Ziyech, meanwhile, exited international retirement to play at World Cup 2022 with Morocco, where he was a member of the side that drew 0-0 with Croatia in their opening fixture on Wednesday.
