Ajax on verge of landing Chelsea star as Antony replacement

An imminent reunion appears to be on the cards at The Johan Cruyff Arena

Dutch giants Ajax are closing on the signing of a member of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea frontline, according to reports.

The player inching towards an Amsterdam switch? Hakim Ziyech.

As per a report from transfer journalist Nicolo Schira, wide-man Ziyech is now ‘one step away’ from a return to former stomping grounds in the Eredivisie.

This of course comes after the Moroccan international enjoyed the most successful spell of his career to date whilst lining out in Ajax colours.

The fresh impetus placed on Ziyech’s return comes with Ajax primed to bid farewell to a key member of the club’s current attacking ranks at any moment.

The player set to bid an imminent farewell to the Dutch capital? Antony.

On the back of a protracted saga surrounding the future of their gifted winger, the powers that be at The Johan Cruyff Arena, earlier today, finally agreed to grand his long-standing departure wish.

This comes after Manchester United tabled an eye-watering offer in the region of €100 million, in a bid to reunite Antony with former boss Erik ten Hag, and teammate Lisandro Martinez.
