“Good player, but no thanks!” Some fans react to news that Chelsea have identified Ziyech replacement

Posted by

Following what has been a hugely disappointing debuting campaign, Chelsea is reportedly on the lookout for a possible replacement for former Ajax wide-man Hakim Ziyech. One of the names high up on the Blues’ short-list is understood to be Leicester City attacker James Maddison – who is also wanted by the Blues’ local rivals Arsenal.

That’s according to a recent claim from Football London reporter Chris Wheatley, who has taken to his social media to offer fans an exciting update.

Wheatley claims that although Mikel Arteta is a big admirer of the English midfielder, the Foxes’ transfer demands are likely to be an obstacle in the Gunners’ pursuit.

However, one club that could look to lean on their financial firepower is rivals Chelsea, who reportedly view Maddison as the ideal replacement for the misfiring Ziyech.

Despite only arriving in London 12-months ago, Ziyech, who has started just 15 Premier League games, is being strongly tipped to move on again this summer.

Following on from the exciting update, selections of Chelsea fans have since taken to social media to give their thoughts.
