Chelsea have set their asking price for Hakim Ziyech if he is to leave the club amid transfer interest from across Europe.

Graham Potter has bolstered his attacking in the January transfer window, with the Todd Boehly-Clearlake Capital ownership backing the 47-year-old with the arrivals of Joao Felix (loan), Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke.

It has given Chelsea a lift following the injuries to Christian Pulisic and Raheem Sterling, while Armando Broja is out for the remainder of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.

Ziyech has taken advantage of the opportunities Potter has handed him following the restart after the World Cup, where he finished fourth with Morocco.

However, Ziyech has been an outcast throughout his time at Stamford Bridge since he made the switch from Ajax in 2020. He has worked under three managers in the capital – Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel and now Potter.

AS Roma, AC Milan, Newcastle United and Everton have all been previously linked with the winger, however Chelsea aren’t looking to loan the Moroccan if he is to depart west London.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea’s valuation of Ziyech has now been revealed.

If clubs are to convince Chelsea of parting company with the wide-man, they will have to pay €20 million.

He has made 15 appearances in all competitions this season, six coming after the World Cup break.

Ziyech’s patience has paid off after Potter send him a message over his limited role at Chelsea regarding minutes on the pitch.

Last month, the Chelsea head coach said: “He played against Man City, and came on against Newcastle. Where he was when we first came, he was a little bit away from the first XI.

“He’s been involved in the games and came on in the first game as a sub. We know his qualities, we like him as a player, and he plays between the lines with fantastic quality as we saw in the World Cup. 

“At Chelsea, there are always good players who aren’t in the starting XI and have to be patient.”
