Chelsea leaders are said to be ready to take out the checkbook to let Hakim Ziyech go to FC Barcelona.
With very few solutions in attack since his arrival on the Catalan bench, Xavi asked his management to find him an offensive reinforcement in anticipation of the next transfer market. Confronted with the intransigence of Manchester city in the file Raheem sterling, Barça officials finally decided to approach another English club.
Very interested in the profiles of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, Xavi validated these two tracks with the Catalan board. This time around, Joan Laporta, Barça’s first official, shouldn’t have too much trouble finding an agreement with his English counterpart. According to daily information Sport, the Blues would be ready to pay part of the transaction of the Moroccan in case of agreement with the player.
Determined to downsize his workforce especially in attack, after the recruitment of Romelu Lukaku this summer, Thomas Tuchel would also be ready to let go of another of his attackers, the German international Timo Werner, in a similar operation.
