Chelsea have officially confirmed the signing of Ajax star Hakim Ziyech after the midfielder agreed to terms on a five-year deal.
The Morocco winger, who will join the Blues on July 1 for an initial fee of 40million euros (£33.4m), is to remain at Ajax for the remainder of the season.
On Sunday evening, Chelsea confirmed on their website that Ziyech had agreed to terms on a deal until mid-2025.
Ziyech said, “I am happy and proud that I have signed for such a large club as Chelsea. I look forward to next season and hopefully, we can achieve fantastic things together.”
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “We are delighted Hakim will be joining us, having been a key target of the club’s in this last window.
“He has consistently been one of the most dangerous attacking players in Europe in recent years, which we saw first-hand in our two games against Ajax in the Champions League.
“We wish Hakim and Ajax all the best for the rest of the season and look forward to welcoming him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.”
