Morocco manager Walid Regragui tells Hakim Ziyech to leave Chelsea amid AC Milan transfer interest

The forward starred in the World Cup when the Atlas Lions made history, becoming the first African team to reach the semi-finals.

Ziyech had just returned to the fold at international level after a falling out with previous manager Vahid Halilhodžić. Cut from Morocco’s squad for the delayed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations played earlier this year, the 29-year-old has even retired from international football.

While he is a key player for his country again, Ziyech has always struggled to gain time at Stamford Bridge.

A £37m signing from Ajax in the summer of 2020the former FC Twente player has started just one Premier League game this season and has previously attracted interest since AC Milan.

Chelsea will further strengthen their front line with the signing of RB Leipzig and French striker Christopher Nkunku in the summer, while Molde teenager David Datro Fofana is also expected to join.

For this reason, Regragui has told Ziyech to look for a new club to guarantee first-team football.

“[Selim] Amallah and [Azzedine] Ounahi will surely find better clubs and the same for Ziyech, who has shown what he can do, he deserves to start at Chelsea,” he told Viola News. .
