Chelsea fans will love this after new signing Ziyech’s name alongside Cruyff, Van Basten and Bergkamp
Hakim Ziyech has been compared to football legends Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten and Dennis Bergkamp ahead of his move to Chelsea.
We decided to make our move way back in February to try and tempt the winger to the club, a move that has been heralded as a summer bargain, due to the fact that we are paying just £37 million to secure his services.
There have been many out there that believe he will be a massive player for us when he officially signs up, and many fans are excited to see just what he is able to bring to the club.
Now Dutch commentator Jan Roelfs, who regularly covers Ajax, is confident that the 27-year-old is worth the wait as his quality is undeniable, and Roelfs even compared his talent to that of Ajax legends Cruyff, Van Basten and Bergkamp who are highly regarded as some of the best forwards in the history of the game.
He told the NOS podcast: “Ziyech will not be lost in England, he has so much quality.
“When I make a list of Ajax players, I think of Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp and Hakim Ziyech, in that order. I really think he is close to that as a stylist.
“I go to the stadium for someone like Ziyech – that is an important condition for me. There are a few football players like that.”
Lets hope that he comes to the club and puts in the kind of performances he has been over the past few seasons, we really can afford for Ziyech to be a massive flop at the club
