Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech has opened up and revealed a major reason for joining Chelsea this summer window.
Ziyech is regarded as one of the most creative and exciting players in Europe right now and has been one of the main reasons why Ajax have been so successful both domestically and in Europe over the past few seasons.
The 26-year-old will make the move Stamford Bridge in the summer after his £37million move from Ajax was agreed earlier this year, which has got many Chelsea fans excited to see just what he will bring to the club next season.
He will surely be the immediate replacement for the departing Willian, who is leaving the club after failing to agree a new contract at the club, and will also add some superstar quality to this Chelsea midfield.
There was alot of interest in his services during the January transfer window, but it was Chelsea who completed a transfer deal and now Ziyech has cited Frank Lampard’s philosophy as crucial behind his decision to join Chelsea.
“Chelsea is a beautiful club, a huge club,” Ziyech told NOS. “The football that they play attracts me, and the manager wants to play attacking football. “And just like here [Ajax], they like to use the talent that walks around in their club now.”
There is not much that we can say about the quality of Ziyech and what he will bring to the club. But fans are excited, the media is excited about his arrival and everyone associated with Chelsea are excited to see what he will bring.
What we will say though, Lampard needs to follow this transfer singing up and bring in a new world class defender and a top striker to help out Tammy Abraham, anything more than that would just be to add a bit more depth to the Chelsea side. But as we said, Ziyech is a great signing that will bring goals to the Chelsea side, great bit of transfer business from the Blues.
