Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech is attracting interest from Saudi club Al-Nassr which would see him play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Foot Mercato via Daily Mail.

Al-Nassr’s president is set to travel to London in a bid to tempt the Morocco international to move to Saudi Arabia this summer.

Ziyech is said to be tempted by a move to the Kingdom, in part due to the opportunity to play alongside Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nassr after the Qatar World Cup. 

Ziyech is likely to be offered a bumper contract to entice him to Al-Nassr, and Chelsea will not look to stand in the player’s way. 

Ziyech is under contract at Chelsea until 2025. His sale this summer will contribute to Chelsea’s desire to balance the books and avoid being in breach of Financial Fair Play regulation. 

The Moroccan international joined Chelsea from Ajax in the summer of 2020.
