Chelsea flop Hakim Ziyech is attempting to revive his deal to join PSG, after the Moroccan’s move came unstuck. 

The former Ajax winger has endured a miserable two-and-a-half year spell at Stamford Bridge and previously travelled to Paris in a bid to seal a move to the French titans. 

The Blues were open to letting the player leave on loan, after the club revealed they would be keen to let the player leave to a non-Premier League rival before the end of the January transfer window.

Christophe Galtier’s side were keen to bring Ziyech to the French capital before the deal hit a snag

Despite starring for the Atlas Lions in their remarkable run to the World Cup semi-finals – becoming the first African side to do so – Ziyech has continued to struggle at Chelsea this season after a poor first term. 

As such the Blues were willing to let him leave, with PSG offering themselves as a potential destination.

The player was in the French capital to have a medical when the deal hit a stumbling block, throwing Ziyech’s immediate future in doubt. 

However, the 29-year-old is understood to be working hard to keep the deal alive as he plots his exit from Stamford Bridge.

At the Parc des Princes, he would reunite with compatriot Achraf Hakimi, who was equally key in their nation’s run to the last-four of the World Cup.  

As well as the French champions, Serie A giants Roma had also been interested in signing the Moroccan attacker this month, with the Giallorossi looking to climb into the Europa League places in the Italian top-flight. 

Jose Mourinho was reportedly keen on bringing the 29-year-old to the Italian capital, but must first generate the necessary £25million to do so. 

With the club bringing in the likes of Mykhailo Mudryk, Joao Felix and Noni Madueke this month, Graham Potter will be keen to offload several players that will be losing their place in the side. 

He has already averaged fewer than 45 minutes a game in his 10 appearances for the Blues in the league, and is yet to score in all competitions, assisting just once.
