Ziyech is the creative man Southampton need in January

Southampton are still a club on the mend after last season but the summer transfer window has given hope to the fans that they can be a top ten side once again.

Their summer signings have been able to hit the ground running and although their team is far from perfect, Southampton can be optimistic that a season battling against relegation won’t happen again this year.

In order to reach the heights they once did in the Premier League a few seasons ago, they need to invest again when the January transfer window opens and specifically search for a creative attacking midfielder, who can link the midfield to attack, creating and scoring goals themselves.

A player who would fit that criteria perfectly is Ajax and Moroccan midfielder Hakim Ziyech.

Ziyech, who is valued at £22.5 million on Transfermarkt, is a playmaker with immense quality as he has continued to prove with Dutch champions Ajax. At the World Cup he consistently looked Morocco’s biggest threat and it was surprising no one seriously enquired about signing him.

Nevertheless after four goals and four assists in his ten appearances thus far this season, it’s about time Southampton became the team that realises his potential and do their best to persuade him to come to England.

The 25-year-old has been in fantastic form for the last few seasons and his influence on the game is very telling, when seeing that he scored nine goals and provided a staggering 18 assists last season alone.

Southampton recently sold Dusan Tadic to Ajax so surely a favour in return wouldn’t be too much to ask for. Hakim Ziyech is the man to help propel the Saints from revelation battlers to top ten dreamers without a doubt, they need to make this deal happen.
