Chelsea in advanced talk with Hakim Ziyech

 

Ziyech was in Chelsea’s radar in the January transfer window but Ajax insisted on keeping the winger till the summer.

The Morocco international will be the first signing for Frank Lampard since becoming the Chelsea manager in the summer.

Chelsea’s transfer ban was lifted a few weeks before the January transfer window.

 

Chelsea was expected to acquire new players as they fought hard against the ban.

 

All efforts was cut short as clubs were refusing to sell and Lampard not wanting to buy a player not as good as his current ones.

Chelsea tried to sign Hakim Ziyech, Dries Martens and Edison Cavani in January but the clubs refused to sell.

 

However, Chelsea followed up the Ziyech pursuit as other big teams have an eye on the Ajax playmaker.

 

Ziyech has scored 8 goals this season and provided 21 assists in 29 games for Ajax.

 

One of his goals came against Chelsea in the 4-4 cracker in the Champions League where he scored a free kick.

The 26-year-old winger can play from the left wing forward.

 

Ziyech can also play as a number 10 perfectly on the field.

 

He will be a perfect replacement for the aging Pedro and William.

 

Pedro and William’s contract expires at the end of the season.

Serena Williams could hardly believe she lost the game as she broke down in tears in her press conference after losing the Australian Open Semi-final to 23-year old Naomi Osaka.

 

She lost the match in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 in the Australian Open semi-final at Rod Laver Arena earlier today.

 

The 39-year-old is still one grand slam behind Margaret Court’s all-time tennis record of 24 women’s Grand Slam singles titles.
Howbeit, She failed to reach the final again at the Australian Open.
An emotional Williams was asked some questions in her post match press conference but she left in tears.

In one of the questions she was asked she said,

“If I ever say farewell,” she replied with a smile, “I wouldn’t tell anyone.”

 

 

When the next question returned the conversation to the subject of Williams’ many mistakes Thursday (Wednesday night EST) — twice as many unforced errors, 24, as winners, 12 — she shook her head, teared up, said, “I’m done,” and suddenly walked out of the session with reporters.

On Saturday, at 7:30 p.m. local time (3:30 a.m. EST), Osaka will meet first-time Grand Slam finalist Jennifer Brady of the United States for the championship. The 22nd-seeded Brady, who is from Pennsylvania and played college tennis at UCLA, prevailed in an epic, 18-point last game to edge No. 25 Karolina Muchova 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 in the semifinals.

In one of her press conferences, the Japanese revealed that her sister, Mari was the one who pushed her into sports.

 

She’s the person who pushed me when we were little. I had no drive at all. So, just hitting with her every day gave me something to look forward to and just for her to be so artistic and for us to in a way do everything together. That’s why I go to her for most of my projects and she helps me out a lot. I think that’s the least I can do to repay her,” she said.
