Chelsea are reluctant to transfer Hakim Ziyech.
Chelsea’s season this season has been bleak. Last year, Roman Abramovich was ousted as the owner, and new owner Todd Boelli took his place. There was also a change in the supervisory position. Coach Thomas Tuchel was sacked during the season, and coach Graham Porter was appointed to seek new changes.
However, grades were not supported. Chelsea made the signings of strikers such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling in the transfer market this summer, but their performance continued to decline. After losing 1-4 against Brighton in the 14th round of the English Premier League (EPL), they recorded 2 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in 8 league games, and are currently in 10th place in the league.
The biggest problem is determinism. Kai Havertz in the front line is sluggish, and Obameyang, an ambitious recruit, is also showing lower-than-expected results. Also, the 2nd line resources Sterling and Christian Pulisic have not been able to share their scoring power yet. 안전놀이터
Among them, the most underperforming player is Ziyeh. Ziyech is already in his third year at Chelsea. Coach Tuchel often used it as a right winger, but he is experiencing the worst sluggishness this season when Director Porter took office. This season, Ziyech has not scored and has only one assist in 10 appearances in the league.
As a result, there are rumors of a transfer to another club. It’s Newcastle United. It’s true that Ziyech has been sluggish, but Newcastle do not doubt his talent. This is because he played a big role in the World Cup in Qatar and was the main player who led his country Morocco to the semifinals.
According to the British media ‘Telegraph’, “Last week, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe said he lacked an attacking team and has strong interest in Hakim Ziyech.” In particular, Newcastle are in third place this season and are considering loaning right winger Ziyech.
However, Chelsea admits his sluggishness but refuses to let him go. Reporter Nizar Kinsella of the British media ‘Evening Standard’ revealed that Chelsea do not want Ziyech on loan to Newcastle. Newcastle are desperately trying to secure their current goal of 4th place, so they want to rent Ziyech, but from Chelsea’s point of view, it is difficult to find a replacement for Ziyech.
