Chelsea £100,000 a-week star had chance to sign for PL rivals

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly planning to make a move for Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech.

Spurs have added seven players to their team in the summer, however, they are still looking to make further additions before the transfer window ends on September 1.

Antonio Conte was previously keen to secure the services of AS Roma playmaker Nicolo Zaniolo, however, the player decided to stay in Serie A, which has led to Spurs considering alternatives.

According to Algemeen Dagblad, Tottenham have identified Ziyech as a possible transfer target, with the Moroccan currently out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

Ziyech was an unused substitute for the Blues first two Premier League appearances this term, while he featured for less than half an hour in the loss to Leeds United on Sunday.

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder has been rumoured with a return to Ajax, however, Spurs are prepared to begin talks about a possible move this week.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig are reportedly interested in securing the services of Trevoh Chalobah from Chelsea.

The 23-year-old defender featured 31 times for the West London giants last term, however, he has fallen down the pecking order this term following the arrivals of Marc Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Chelsea are not believed to allow Chalobah to leave on a permanent transfer, however, they are open to a loan exit for the 23-year-old centre-back.

Inter Milan are keen to bring the defender to San Siro, however, according to the Daily Mail they will face stiff competition from RB Leipzig who have joined the race to secure the services of Chalobah on loan.
