Hakim Ziyech 'passes PSG medical, urges Chelsea to let him leave'

 There are no longer any rumors that Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are in talks about Hakim Ziyech, a Moroccan international footballer.

Christophe Galtier, the head coach of PSG, has said that the French team is talking to Chelsea about buying Ziyech.

Galtier stated, "Yes, the club is working on the Hakim Ziyech deal, this information came out, but today, as I speak to you, he is a Chelsea player."

Fabrizio Romano made the observation that "the two clubs are discussing on the formula of the deal" while tweeting Galtier's confirmation earlier today.

Ziyech had been linked to a move to PSG in a number of converging reports prior to the January transfer window's deadline.

There are a number of Premier League teams determined to close out January Transfer Deadline Day with last-minute deals.

Ziyech will join his Atlas Lions teammate Achraf Hakimi, who has been a key player for the French club alongside iconic players like Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, if the transfer is approved.

Some convergent reports indicate that Chelsea has granted Ziyech permission to visit Paris for his medical examinations prior to his signing with the French club, despite the fact that negotiations are still ongoing.

Foot Mercato claims that Ziyech will sign for PSG once the Blues and the French club reach an agreement regarding his medical examination.

In 2020, Ziyech paid €40 million to join Chelsea from Ajax Amsterdam, a club in the Netherlands.

GOAL confirmed that the two clubs had reached an agreement on a loan deal for the Morocco international without an obligation to buy after hours of negotiations. While the clubs were still negotiating, Ziyech landed in Paris to complete his medical, but there is a significant transfer issue.

THE LARGER VIEW: GOAL is aware that Chelsea repeatedly sent the incorrect documents, which is why the required paperwork was submitted late. Ziyech's transfer was submitted late as a result. PSG will be able to make an appeal to the French football authorities, but reports on Tuesday night suggested that they don't think they will be able to sign the Morocco international for the rest of the season.

Plus, here's more: This isn't the only disappointment PSG has had in January; prior to the Ziyech mess, the giants of Ligue 1 failed to make an approach for Malcom. Additionally, they had hoped to sign Milan Skriniar before the deadline. The defender's contract with Inter will expire before he arrives in the French capital in the summer, despite his agreement with the Parisiens.

After passing his medical, Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech, who is 29 years old, is said to have arrived at Paris Saint-Germain's headquarters to sign the final paperwork for his loan move to the French capital.

The Moroccan international was pleading with Chelsea to facilitate his loan move to PSG before the transfer window closed in a few hours.

After Pablo Sarabia left for Wolves earlier that month, the Moroccan international was named by PSG as his replacement. Throughout the day, talks between the two teams continued.

Ziyech directly intervened in the negotiations, telling Chelsea management to be more accommodating with their terms because he didn't get much playing time in West London.

The former Ajax player had made just over 100 appearances since joining the Blues in 2020. However, he only appeared in ten Premier League games that season and failed to score. Ziyech emerged as an option following PSG's attempts to acquire former Bordeaux winger Malcom and Lyon midfield prospect Rayan Cherki.

Hakim Ziyech, a Chelsea attacker, is reportedly satisfied with his medical with Paris Saint-Germain and is pleading with the Blues to let him leave before the January transfer deadline on Tuesday.

The Morocco international has played a minor role for the Blues all season, falling further down the pecking order as a result of the additions of Noni Madueke, Joao Felix, and Mykhaylo Mudryk.

PSG made a last-minute acquisition of Ziyech following the failure of negotiations with AC Milan and the completion of Pablo Sarabia's permanent switch to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, according to L'Equipe, Chelsea has been accused of being "greedy" in negotiations to separate from Ziyech, who is now taking matters into his own hands.

The 29-year-old has passed his medical with the French champions, according to the report, and he has asked Chelsea to be more "flexible" as the two clubs try to reach an agreement.

In his 15 appearances for Chelsea this season, Ziyech has only provided one assist, and he has only made four appearances in the Premier League in 2022-23.

The Moroccan attacker, who played a pivotal role in the Atlas Lions' historic run to the World Cup semi-finals, has a contract with Chelsea through the summer of 2025.

The Moroccan midfielder was said to have turned down offers from a number of English clubs, including Newcastle and Everton, according to a number of reports.

Ziyech was a big part of Moroco's performance at the Qatar World Cup the year before, where they finished fourth after losing to Croatia in the playoffs.

Across leagues, the 29-year-old has donned the Chelsea uniform 98 times. Ziyech managed to score 14 goals and provide 11 assists across all competitions since joining the Blues in 2020.

Hakim Ziyech will join Paris Saint-Germain on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season, but the move is threatened by administrative issues because of problems with registration. After passing his medical earlier on Tuesday in the French capital, the Morocco international was scheduled to arrive at Parc des Princes on a paid contract until this summer.

At Stamford Bridge, Ziyech, 29, had fallen down the hierarchy, and PSG's need for more originality has increased since the FIFA 2022 World Cup. Recently, Neymar, Carlos Soler, and Renato Sanches have all struggled to maintain consistent form, and Ziyech performed admirably for Morocco in Qatar, only to see limited playing time under Graham Potter.

Under Christophe Galtier, the former AFC Ajax player was expected to play a role on the team. However, Neymar may have made his debut as early as this Saturday against Toulouse FC at home in Ligue 1. That is not in jeopardy as a result of communication difficulties that exist between the offices of the Premier League and the French Professional Football League (LFP).

Even though Ziyech would not solve PSG's defensive problems, which could have been solved by moving Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan earlier, he could add invention to a team that is currently lacking inspiration -- if completed. Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, and Neymar are having trouble regaining their pre-World Cup form, and Les Parisiens have only won once in their last four games.
