Roma are in contact with Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech who is considered the ideal replacement for Nicolo Zaniolo. The Giallorossi will attempt to sign the Moroccan international only if Zaniolo were to leave the club within the next few days.
According to La Repubblica, Roma are in advanced talks with Ziyech’s agent and have gone as far as formulating a long-term proposal: the capital club are willing to offer a contract until 2026 with a salary of €4.5 million plus bonuses which would be subject to growth decree.
Chelsea are open to Ziyech’s sale and are seeking a minor fee in exchange for the ex-Ajax man. As a result, Roma remain vigilant and hope to resolve the situation concerning Nicolo Zaniolo as soon as possible to facilitate Ziyech’s arrival.
