After touching down in London on Friday evening, Hakim Ziyech has been training at Cobham for the first time today, as our exclusive pictures show…
The Moroccan international is now officially a Chelsea player following his transfer from Ajax, although he cannot feature for the Blues until the 2020/21 campaign begins. In the meantime, the focus is on fitness given he hasn’t played a competitive game since the first week of March.
