Chelsea want Sancho, Bellingham and Dembele to follow Ziyech deal

Chelsea are planning a buying spree after confirming a deal for Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech.

Ziyech is the first piece of an attacking overhaul the Blues hope will cast a spell on the Premier League.

The Sun says they also have Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Jude Bellingham (Birmingham City) and Moussa Dembele (Lyon) firmly on their radar.

And as Frank Lampard's rebuild continues, Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud are set to be offloaded.

Moroccan international Ziyech, who joins for an initial £33.3m plus add-ons, said: “Happy to be fit again so I can enjoy these last months on the pitch, where I belong.

“Very happy with my next step but first I have some unfinished business."
