Hakim Ziyech says goodbye to Ajax today.
The Moroccan playmaker sealed his transfer to Chelsea in the middle of the 2019/20 season and will now join his new team tomorrow.
Ziyech’s stock in the soccer world has grown rapidly over the past two to three years, with his Champions League performances with Ajax in particular drawing attention.
The 27-year-old left Amsterdam with 48 goals and 82 assists to his name in just 165 appearances in all competitions.
His flagship role of his time with Ajax is also damn incredible. The Dutch side posted a 22-minute video of Ziyech at its best on its official YouTube channel today.
The ‘Wizard of AMS’ has scored cracked goals, thrown assists and produced outrageous skills over the years.
So, Chelsea fans, grab a cup of tea, sit back, relax and watch your future game superstar weave his magic!
The players who make professional football so simple are worth their weight in gold.
The signing of Ziyech could prove essential to transform the young club of Frank Lampard at Chelsea into potential Premier League winners.
Throughout 2019/20, the Blues missed a player with the tip and the passing range that Ziyech definitely has.
Mason Mount has often been responsible for producing the goods, but the Englishman just isn’t up to the task of being an elite level playmaker.
But at Ziyech, they have one of the best. The prospect of a rapprochement between the Moroccan and his compatriot Timo Werner is also attractive on paper.
When you take into account Christian Pulisic, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Chelsea’s starting potential for 2020/21 is one that will give nightmare to opposing defenders.
However, you never know how the Eredivisie players will adapt to the Premier League and it is of course far from certain that Ziyech will be a success on the English coast.
