‘He didn’t come to my office’ — Tuchel gives update on Hakim Ziyech

There have been reports that Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech may leave the club in January after an inconsistent showing at the club since he joined Chelsea from Ajax.

Ziyech has been unable to grab a steady place in the Chelsea starting lineup, and reports have it that the Moroccan international may leave in January.

However, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has rubbished those reports and has claimed that the 28-year-old attacking midfielder has never come to his office to discuss an exit.

“At the moment here in Cobham there are no thoughts about his future,” said Tuchel ahead of Saturday’s game against Leicester.

“There are no thoughts about a potential change, swap deal or whatever in the winter. I have talked to nobody about that here in Cobham.

“Hakim was not in my office expressing a wish like this so right now, he is a full member of the squad.

“He is an important guy, a very talented guy, a very ambitious guy, and he’s a full part of our squad. He was last season, he is this season and we expect the very best of him all the time.

“But it’s tough competition. I cannot let everybody play all the time 90 minutes, it’s simply impossible.”
