Ziyech included in Chelsea talks for Raphinha with Leeds keen

Hakim Ziyech is being used by Chelsea in their offer for Leeds United winger Raphinha, reports have claimed.

The Blues could include Ziyech in a potential swap deal as Leeds are believed to be extremely interested in the winger.

It is suggested that Leeds would prefer that deal rather than a lump sum of £55m, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.

Whites boss Jesse Marsch believes Ziyech would provide an ideal replacement for Raphinha.

Arsenal and Tottenham are also keen on the Brazil international.

Ziyech has fallen out of favour under Thomas Tuchel, having managed just 23 league appearances last season.
