Following the news of Hakim Ziyech‘s failed transfer to Saudi Arabia, Everton might once again have an opportunity to secure the services of the talented Moroccan player.
In February 2020, a transfer agreement was reached between Ajax and Chelsea, valuing Ziyech at €40 million (potentially rising to a maximum of €44 million with additional factors). The winger subsequently signed a five-year contract with Chelsea.
During his time at Chelsea, Ziyech appeared in 64 matches, scoring a total of 6 goals. However, his tenure with the London-based club has been marked by inconsistency, leading to speculation about his departure from Stamford Bridge.
Ziyech’s anticipated move to Al Nassr for a reported £8 million recently fell through, reportedly due to a failure to agree on terms for a three-year contract with the Saudi Pro League champions.
According to Goodisonnews, Everton could now have another chance to secure Ziyech’s services if they decide to reignite their previous interest in the player. The Toffees had expressed their desire to sign Ziyech during the January transfer window, but ultimately no deal materialized for the popular club.
The potential acquisition of Ziyech would undoubtedly bolster Everton’s attacking options. Known for his technical skills and creativity, Ziyech could provide the Toffees with a much-needed spark in the final third.

It remains to be seen whether Everton will seize this opportunity to pursue Ziyech once again. The club’s previous interest indicates their belief in the player’s abilities, and a successful move could provide a fresh start for Ziyech in the Premier League.
As the transfer window progresses, football fans eagerly await updates on this potential transfer. Everton supporters, in particular, will be hoping that their club can secure the signature of Hakim Ziyech, as they look to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
