Let’s get started! Ziyech will join Al Nassr, according to Romano.
Final contracts have been signed, and Hakim Ziyech has agreed to join Al Nassr. Everything has been agreed upon with Chelsea and the players since last week.
Contract is valid until June 2026, after which medical examinations will be performed.
We have it confirmed.
Ziyech is one of the Chelsea players who can go during the open transfer season as the club seeks to downsize its bloated squad and balance Financial Fair Play laws.
According to Fabrizio Romano, negotiations between the Blues and their Middle Eastern counterparts were successful, and the player has agreed to personal terms ahead of his move.
The Moroccan star has reportedly agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Saudi Pro League club until 2026.
Ziyech is the latest Premier League player to join Al-Nassr after Cristiano Ronaldo became the Saudi top-flight’s first superstar after signing in December after his contract at Manchester United expired.
With the recent surge of European talent to the oil-rich nation, former Real Madrid player and current Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema has also relocated to the desert.
Ziyech is the third Chelsea player to leave Stamford Bridge for teams in Saudi Arabia this summer, following N’Golo Kante and Kalidou Koulibaly.
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who is on the verge of joining Al Ahli, is another possible addition.
Ziyech, a former Ajax player, has had a disappointing Chelsea career since transferring to London for £37 million three years ago.
Under previous manager Thomas Tuchel, the 30-year-old made 107 appearances, scoring 14 goals in all competitions and winning the Champions League.
