According to reports in Spain, Barcelona president Joan Laporta is ready to move for Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech.
Spanish media outlet Sport via TribalFootball claim Barcelona president has received encouragement from Chelsea to make a move for Ziyech.
Chelsea are reportedly willing to allow Ziyech join Barcelona on loan in January with the Spanish side having no option to make the deal permanent.
However, Barcelona aim to split Ziyech’s €7milion salary 50-50 with Chelsea.
For his part, Ziyech would welcome a switch to the Nou Camp over the New Year after falling down the pecking order at Chelsea.
