Attack­ing mid­field­er Hakim Ziyech is no longer linked to Chelsea. As author­i­ta­tive insid­er Fab­rizio Romano reports on social net­works, Galatasaray has acti­vat­ed the option to buy the Moroc­can. The Lon­don club has already sent doc­u­ments con­firm­ing the agree­ment to Istan­bul.

Ziyech moved to Galatasaray on loan last August. Since then, the Moroc­can has played 21 match­es, in which he scored eight goals and pro­vid­ed four assists for his part­ners. Trans­fer­markt por­tal experts val­ue 31-year-old Ziyech at 9.5 mil­lion euros.

Galatasaray ranks first in the Turk­ish Cham­pi­onship stand­ings.
