Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is keen on signing Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech this January, according to a report on Evening Standard.

Italian club AS Roma are reportedly keen on signing Ziyech this month as a replacement for Nicolo Zaniolo.

Zaniolo is wanted by Brighton, Spurs and West Ham and Ziyech is a prime candidate to head to Roma when Zaniolo is sold.

Ziyech joined Chelsea from Ajax for around £35m in 2020 and has since made 98 appearances, scoring 14 times and laying on 11 assists.

Prior to the World Cup he started just one Premier League match but has started three of Chelsea’s last four games.
