In Football Transfer News, Ajax want back Hakim Ziyech back to Amsterdam to replace Antony. While Chelsea want to sign Ivorian forward, Wilfred Zaha as a Aubameyang alternative.

Hakim Ziyech back to Ajax?

The Moroccan winger joined the Blues from Ajax for £38million in 2020 but has since struggled to carve out a regular first team spot in Thomas Tuchel's side.

Ziyech has dropped further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following the summer arrival of Raheem Sterling, who scored twice in the Blues' 2-1 win against Leicester on Saturday.

Alongside the ex-Man City star, the 29-year-old is continuing to fight with Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi for a spot in Tuchel's front three.

Sportsmail revealed on Sunday that Ajax are finally ready to accept Manchester United's £84m offer for star winger Antony, and the Dutch side have already lined up Ziyech as a potential replacement on Alfred Schreuder's right-hand side.

Although the Red Devils had a £74m bid rejected on Friday, Antony is keen to reunite with his former boss Erik ten Hag and it seems Ajax are ready to part ways with their Brazilian winger.

The Eredivisie giants left Antony out of their matchday squad to face Utrecht on Sunday.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is currently on the lookout for attacking reinforcements following the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.

Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the club's top priority with a deal already in place.

However, talks recently stalled over personal terms as Chelsea are only willing to propose a one-year deal while the former Arsenal man wants a contract that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2024.

While Tuchel is pushing to complete the transfer before next week's deadline day, he has also identified another target as a potential back-up if terms cannot be agreed.

According to The Guardian, Crystal Palace forward Zaha has emerged on the club's wishlist.

Zaha has less than one year remaining on his current contract with the Eagles, so he could be made available for a reasonable price.

The Ivory Coast international, who re-joined Palace from Manchester United in 2015, has scored three goals in three games for Patrick Vieira's side this season.

But, he was left out of the squad for Saturday's clash with Manchester City due to a leg injury.

Chelsea are seeking a proven goalscorer with Armando Broja currently the club's only out-and-out striker.
