Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech, according to The Telegraph.

Having signed Joao Felix and Mykhailo Mudryk, with Noni Madueke also expected to complete his transfer from PSV this weekend, the Blues are open to selling Ziyech.

Chelsea have already offered Ziyech in a deal to sign Yves Bissouma but Tottenham Hotspur rejected enquiry as they are unwilling to let the central midfielder leave during the January transfer window.

Former Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit has explained why Ziyech has struggled at Chelsea and claims he would thrive at Barcelona.

Speaking on Ziggo Sport, Gullit said: “The way Ziyech plays for Morocco, I’ve never seen him play for Chelsea. It’s not just him.

“I think Chelsea have put him in positions that don’t suit him at times. He just needs to play on that right side.

“I wonder… I think he comes into his own in Spain, I think. I have the impression that he has never reached the level of Ajax in England.

“I would like to see him in Spain. He can reach the top. He would also fit well in the Barcelona team.”
