Born in Fontenay-aux-Roses in France to Moroccan parents, Chahechouhe holds French citizenship and plays as a midfielder. Having played for a number of teams in the French lower leagues, Chahechouhe joined AS Nancy on 9 July 2009 after a short stint with Championnat de France amateur side Olympique Noisy-le-Sec.[1] On 24 April 2010, he made his professional debut in a league match against Montpellier.[2]

He joined Bulgarian side Chernomorets Burgas in January 2012 and scored 10 goals in just 15 matches, attracting the attention of Turkish Süper Lig side Sivasspor, who paid a €500,000 transfer fee that summer.

Chahechouhe finished the 2013-14 season as the Süper Lig's top-scorer with 17 goals, helping Sivasspor to a 5th place finish and qualification to the Europa League. Towards the end of the season, he received his first international call up for Morocco's friendly match with Gabon.[3]

Chahechouhe made his debut for Morocco in 23 May 2014 against Mozambique.[4]
