Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech will have options to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Italian journalist believes that the Moroccan will be one of the players that could be offloaded by manager Thomas Tuchel, and fans on Twitter are very much split on whether selling him would be a good idea:
Looks like the whole squad is leaving

It could be argued that Ziyech has never really been given a long enough run in the side by Tuchel, but injuries have been partly to blame for the stop/start nature of his Chelsea career.
Saying that, though, he hasn’t really taken his chances when given the opportunity to start matches this campaign. On the 26 occasions he has been named in the starting lineup by Tuchel, he has scored seven goals and provided only four assists.
Considering the record he had for creating goals in the Netherlands for Ajax, the numbers are not particularly impressive. It looks as though Tuchel may have run out of patience with the 29-year-old.
