Ziyech tells Chelsea: Accept PSG loan bid!
Hakim Ziyech has told Chelsea to accept Paris Saint-Germain's loan offer, according to L'Equipe.
Ziyech is wanted by PSG as the replacement for Pablo Sarabia, who joined Wolves this month.
The Morocco international, who starred at the recent World Cup, has failed to impress at Stamford Bridge.

He has only shown his talent on occasion, lacking the consistency to nail down a place in the starting lineup.
And, at 29 years of age, Ziyech does not fit Chelsea's current ethos of building for the future.
Having signed Mykhailo Mudryk, Joao Felix and Noni Madueke in the window, manager Graham Potter won't mind losing an attacking player.
Conor Gallagher had also been linked with a move but he will not leave Chelsea in January, CBS reporter Ben Jacobs told FootballTransfers.
''Gallagher has been a target of Newcastle and Crystal Palace. Everton were also interested but Gallagher wasn't enamored by that,'' he said.
Fabrizio Romano reported on Monday that Everton had made a £45 million bid, including add-ons, but the 22-year-old had no interest in joining Sean Dyche's side.
Meanwhile, the Blues are not prepared to sell to Newcastle as they are rivals in the race to qualify for the Champions League.

''Things have changed now,'' Jacobs added. ''Chelsea have lost Jorginho and haven't signed a midfielder.
''Under these circumstances, there's no offer in the world that would be accepted. They simply don't want to lose him.''
Chelsea look to have missed out on Benfica star Enzo Fernandez, while Jorginho has been sold to rivals Arsenal.
Graham Potter is now lacking options in the centre of the pitch and there is no chance Gallagher will be departing unless there is an addition to the squad.
