Chelsea: Fans want club to go after Hakim Ziyech this month

Chelsea: Fans want club to go after Hakim Ziyech this month

With the transfer window now open, some Chelsea fans are desperate for the club to register an interest in Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech.

The 26-year-old has caught the attention of London rivals Arsenal, according to CalcioMercato, but some Chelsea supporters would like to see him move to Stamford Bridge rather than the Emirates, where he has been linked in the past.

Is Hakim Ziyech the creator Chelsea are missing?

Yes

Yes

No

No

They have already seen first-hand what Ziyech can do after his superb free-kick resulted in Kepa scoring an own goal in that exhilarating 4-4 Champions League draw at the Bridge back in November.

Stats also suggest that the Morocco international would be a huge upgrade on Chelsea’s current crop of attackers. For example, according to WhoScored, Ziyech makes 3.6 key passes per Eredivisie game. That is in stark contrast to Willian and Christian Pulisic, who are making two and 1.2 in the Premier League, respectively.

With that level of creativity, it is hardly a surprise that the former FC Twente man has managed to muster up 12 league assists this term, which is again more than what Willian (4) and Pulisic (2) have produced.

The Blues are not currently linked to Ziyech, but they are keen on strengthening their forward options, with The Telegraph reporting that Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho is a target for the club.
