Earlier today, we covered the news that Hakim Ziyech’s transfer from Chelsea to Paris Saint-Germain, which was meant to be a loan, fell through.
This was due to the Blues trying to multitask, and failing miserably at it, sending over unsigned copies of contracts while they were attempting to close the deal for Enzo Fernández.
That meant Ziyech, who had travelled from London to Paris to undergo a medical and try and get his Chelsea exit, was set to return to Stamford Bridge unless someone in Turkey, where the transfer window is open until February 8th, took an interest.
Well, it didn’t take long, as Turkish journalist Gökmen Özcan took to Twitter to reveal that the Morocco international ‘was recommended to Besiktas’.
Hakim Ziyech, Beşiktaş'a önerildi. Yönetim, maliyet değerlendirmesi yapıyor.

That means he was offered by someone, likely an intermediary or the player’s agent, but it has pricked the ears of the Süper Lig club, as the reporter adds that their management are ‘making a cost assessment’.
In essence, those dealing with finances are working out whether they can afford someone like the Chelsea player.
A full transfer here would be highly unlikely, meaning we’re probably looking at a loan with the Blues having to pay some of the player’s wages.
