Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech who agreed to join Chelsea from Ajax in February in a £33.3m deal has arrived at the club’s Cobham training ground in London.
The 26-year-old attacking midfielder is now officially a Chelsea player following his transfer from Ajax, although he cannot feature for the Blues until the 2020/21 campaign begins.
Chelsea posted pictures of Ziyech on the club’s social media handles, confirming his arrival, the club says Ziyech had a light training session this afternoon and will be eased gradually into group training by Coach Frank Lampard over the coming weeks.

Chelsea have four Premier League matches remaining, with this afternoon’s trip to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United as well as the FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United and the Champions League last-16, second leg with Bayern Munich on August 8.
Chelsea was given a special 25-hours window on July 1 to register new signings before the transfer window officially opens, which the club has registered Hakim Ziyech along with German striker Timo Werner.
Werner is expected to arrive at the end of this month.
