Chelsea: Potter Hopes to Reunite With Former Player as Spurs Propose Swap Deal

Rumor has it that Chelsea and Spurs have been discussing the possibility of swapping Yves Bissouma with Hakim Ziyech this month. The pair have been dissatisfied with the amount of game time they have been alloted so far and will be hoping that the potential swap move will scratch their itch. Chelsea are in need of an anchor man in midfield, while Spurs desperately need a creative mind in midfield to make their attack more lethal.

“Word making rounds is that Chelsea and Spurs are pondering on a potential swap deal for Bissouma and Hakim Ziyech. I think that is a very sensible move for both clubs and the two London clubs should pursue it. Conte has been very belligerent with how Spurs have been playing without creativity, Ziyech could be that man for him,” remarked Paul Merson.

Hakim Ziyech has been pushing for a move out of the club since Lampard left the club. The Moroccan has not been getting as much playing time on the pitch as he would want despite working tirelessly on the training ground. Last summer he was linked with a move back to Ajax but the deal broke down after the Dutch giants went for Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampos.

My opinion

Yves Bissouma on the other hand is hoping to get more game time on the pitch in order to improve on his skills. The 25 year old has more than once expressed his dissatisfaction to Antonio Conte but the Spurs manager has always preferred Bentancur and Hojberg over him. Moving to Chelsea with a familiar face in Potter is a good gamble in my opinion.

Chelsea definitely need a new midfielder who can step in and seal the leaks and control the tempo. Jorginho and Kovacic have been doing that for a while now for Chelsea but recently their quality has faded much to the detriment of the club’s overall performance. I believe Bissouma could be the lasting solution.
