According to 90min, Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech is pushing to leave the club in January amid interest from Borussia Dortmund.
After starting the season brightly, Ziyech has dropped down the pecking order at the club following the signing of Romelu Lukaku, as well as the rise of Callum Hudson-Odoi in recent weeks.
The report claims Ziyech and his representatives are ‘pushing for a move away’ in search of more game time.
Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Tuchel admitted last month that Ziyech is still not 100 percent comfortable after his shoulder injury at the start of the season.
Tuchel said: “He scored and had the injury in the Super Cup game. From there I felt it cost him a lot because, maybe even until today, I don’t feel him 100% free with his shoulders. Surely when we played him and made him play 90 minutes, we also started him after that in the Champions League and Premier League.
“I felt that even if it’s maybe no pain, it could be subconscious. There is something that limits him in his movement and freedom to move and turn, accelerate and decelerate. I think we need time and patience, he needs to fight his way back into the team. That is the way it is.
“We were looking for the spot whilst he was out, other guys performed and came in and performed straight. He is one of our players. We will never lose trust or patience with him, he will stay an important player I am sure.”
