Reports; Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech On Atletico Madrid Radar

Chelsea playmaker Hakim Ziyech has emerged as a transfer target for Atletico Madrid as Diego Simeone eyes attacking reinforcements.

A recent report from Fichajes has shed some light on Atletico Madrid’s transfer decision this summer. The Spanish giants intend to retain their La Liga title next season and are desperate to enhance their attacking prowess by entering the market. Their priority target is Antoine Griezmann, but the move has stalled recently.

However,Diego Simeone has cropped up a list of three potential alternatives, one that includes Hakim Ziyech. The Chelsea playmaker has been a subject of interest from multiple clubs across Europe this summer, and it appears Atletico Madrid are the latest ones, as they look to prise the former Ajax starlet away from Stamford Bridge.

Ziyech being identified as an alternative for Griezmann indicates how highly Simeone rates the Chelsea attacker, even though he had an underwhelming 2020/21 campaign.

He fell behind the likes of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and even Christian Pulisic in the pecking order, ending the season with just over 1,150 minutes of league football.

Ziyech’s numbers have already forced Thomas Tuchel to look for alternatives in the market. Interestingly, the Blues have been linked with a move to Saul Niguez of Atletico Madrid, which makes things exciting because the Spaniard was reportedly a subject of a potential swap deal involving Griezmann.
