Paris Saint-Germain’s loan transfer for Chelsea Hakim Ziyech could be in jeopardy as the capital club’s mishap could cost them adding forward depth for the remainder of the 2022-23 football season.
Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano reported on Tuesday night that the Ziyech deal is about to be dead as the documents weren’t sent in time by Chelsea. The French giants are currently looking for a solution.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported late Tuesday, citing sources, that the French giants have agreed to a loan deal with Chelsea; however, as many football fans know, the paperwork is as vital as the negotiations, especially towards the final hours.
It will be interesting to see if there’s a way that both clubs can work out a solution; if not, then it will be a massive blow for PSG, who not only have to wait until the summer for Milan Skriniar but then don’t have Ziyech to replace the outgoing Pablo Sarabia.
