Chelsea looking to offload star loved by Lampard but loathed by Tuchel

Given that Chelsea were revitalised under Thomas Tuchel to such an extent that they ended the 2020/21 campaign by becoming European champions for the second time in their history, the German arguably has carte blanche to mould the Blues squad as he sees fit.

There’s little doubt that despite the first-team squad dancing to Tuchel’s tune in the latter half of the campaign, the squad has Frank Lampard’s stamp all over it.

To that end, some of his players haven’t found favour under Tuchel, and one highly-rated star in particular could be on the way out.

According to Calciomercato, cited by SportWitness, the west Londoners will now listen to offers for Hakim Ziyech.

Hakim Ziyech has proven a bit of a disappointment for Chelsea so far

Injury prone in the first half of the season, he didn’t score in the second half and only managed a solitary assist.

It’s believed that Stefano Pioli at AC Milan could be about to offer the former Ajax man a way out, with representatives of the Italian giants already having met with Chelsea’s intermediary.

    Not a good one to sell him instead Chelsea FC should sell Odoi

    1. Èmmyçhríb says:

      Chelsea should sell odoi or what did I hear you say????????

  2. Godwill tayerera says:

    i feel ziyech has not been given enough time to show his capabilities when compared ti players such as odoi abraham and emerson.
    however, i am aware that some of these are academy graduates and local players and because of those factors they somehow influence salary and transfer decisions

  3. Jon says:

    This is more like damage control. He is injury prone just like Pulisic and keeping both would not do Chelsea any goon best to sell him off and keep Odoi as a cover for the same position while managing Pulisic.

  4. buddha9 says:

    Hakim is a good player but he clearly doesn’t fit Tucel’s strategy, bit like Tammy — he plays a system where neither of these players fit — I also think Hakim is a one trick pony who slows down the counter attacking strategy – he is far too one footed – Pl defenders have also worked him out

  5. Mark James says:

    Ziyech has had some truly amazing moments for Chelsea. The big downfall has been time on the pitch. Don’t sell him, sell Odoi instead. Ziyech is an absolutely fantastic player that needs to stay at Chelsea.

  6. Nonso says:

    Hakim ziyach is a fantastic player. He is a player that has a fighting spirit just like Christiano Ronaldo. His better of than hudson-odio

  7. James musau says:

    Ziyech is a nice player to Chelsea. When given time for this next summer he will do the best. Give him time he deserves to be at Chelsea. I love him as Chelsea fan.

  8. Damilola says:

  10. Ronnie vee says:

    Selling Ziyech will be the biggest mistake Chelsea will ever make.. The coach was once a player so he should feel how hurt it is to seat out..Lampard laid the foundation so Tuchel must not come and drop hakim for us.. He plays as a winger, midfielder and even a striker..He should be given playing time..

  11. Brighton Balesa says:
