Hakim Ziyech looks set to join Chelsea this summer after an agreement was reached with Ajax over a transfer.

It will keep Frank Lampard happy, who was disappointed a deal could not be reached in the January market.

A fee of around £38m has been agreed with Ajax for the winger, who Blues fans will know all about.

The 26-year-old grabbed three assists in their Champions League encounter at Stamford Bridge in an entertaining 4-4 draw.

Lampard liked what he saw but Ajax would not let their star man leave while they were in three competitions.

The Morocco international has scored eight times this campaign, teetering up 21 assists in the process as well.

And Ajax boss Erik ten Hag basically confirmed that a transfer was on the way this summer.

”Ziyech to Chelsea? A transfer was coming, we expected it to happen,” the coach told Dutch TV channel FOX Sports.

”And I actually already expected this 1 or 2 years earlier.

”And each time it was: ’Wow, he stayed again’. We are just happy that we will still have him until the end of the season.”

Ziyech will become Lampard’s first signing at Chelsea, but what shirt could he wear?

The forward currently dons the No. 22 shirt at Ajax – one that he could fit straight into in west London.

Christian Pulisic currently owns that top but he could move to a different number if two players leave this summer.

Pedro and Willian are out of contract at the end of the season and could vacate their No. 11 and No. 10 shirts respectively.

Equally, Ziyech could take one of their tops – either would be appropriate for the playmaker-winger.

He wears the No. 7 for his country but with N’Golo Kante owning that kit, this seems unlikely.

But he has worn No. 10 for Ajax on multiple occasions, while he has also worn No. 11 for his country back in 2015/16.
