Chelsea outcast Hakim Ziyech 'desperate to impress for Morocco at World Cup 2022 to seal AC Milan transfer' | The Sun
CHELSEA outcast Hakim Ziyech is determined to light up the World Cup with Morocco to convince AC Milan to pull the trigger on a transfer, reports say.
The 29-year-old hasn't hit the heights since his 2020 transfer to Stamford Bridge from Ajax.
And this season, the Morocco international has only played nine times across all competitions, failing to register a single goal or assist.
Italian champions Milan have held an interest in Ziyech for some time and could return for the player.
However, Ziyech is hoping to force Milan's hand by playing out of his skin at the World Cup with Morocco in order to seal a January or summer transfer, Calciomercato reports.
Whether the move will be a loan or a permanent transfer is yet to be seen, but Chelsea will undoubtedly be keen to shift the player off the books full-time.
