Paris Saint-Germain wants forward depth before the January transfer window closes to replace Pablo Sarabia, who left the capital club to join Wolverhampton Wanderers. As a result, the French giants are looking at Hakim Ziyech.
A report from L’Equipe on Monday revealed that PSG and Chelsea are in advanced discussions for the 29-year-old. Additionally, the French media outlet added that if Ziyech’s arrival on a loan deal gets done, it will help the Ligue 1 side have the funds to secure Milan Skriniar.

Skriniar has already agreed to a contract with Les Parisiens, which will begin this summer. However, the capital club wants the player now and not having to buy a player right now would allow them to meet the €20 million that Inter Milan wants to let the 27-year-old leave this month.
Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano provided the latest on PSG’s pursuit of Ziyech. He states that talks remain ongoing as both parties attempt to orchestrate the formula to ensure a transfer occurs.
