Ziyech took Chelsea apart at Stamford Bridge in the 4-4 draw. I think he's an excellent signing and, 27 in March, the fact he's a senior player will be a positive.— Matt Law (@Matt_Law_DT) February 12, 2020
Ziyech is great. Wand of a left foot, positionally versatile, presses hard.— Sam Tighe (@stighefootball) February 13, 2020
Fantastic pickup for Chelsea, great start to what is probably a pretty busy year of transfers for them.
Oh how long I’ve waited for a signing, and god is it a good one🔵— Ben🕊 (@RealBenGill) February 13, 2020
Hakim Ziyech had attracted the attention of major European clubs due to his performances in the past two seasons. The Moroccan international has so far scored eight goals and bagged one assist in 30 games this season. His addition to Frank Lampard’s side would provide much-needed depth to the Blues.
Hakim Ziyech was a key member of the Ajax squad that won the Eredivisie last season. They also managed to reach the semi-final of the Champions League.
