India's Blues Welcome Hakim Ziyech

To celebrate three-time Ajax Player of the Year, Hakim Ziyech, joining Chelsea, we decided to ask some Indian Blues for their views on Chelsea’s newest addition.

The arrival of Hakim Ziyech will definitely bolster Chelsea’s attack. We’ve already seen how dangerous he is when he gets space to fire in those delicious crosses. He will be a handful for any defence and is definitely an exciting talent to look forward to.

The signing of Hakim Ziyech was one of the most memorable moments for me as a Chelsea fan. The talent and skills he has in his repertoire are outstanding and I am sure they will just become better with time in Chelsea colors. I am eagerly waiting to see that Hakim Ziyech left-footed magic next season!

Hakim Ziyech was one of the gems of Ajax's famous Champions League run last season, and I was pleasantly surprised that no top club signed him up along with the likes of Matthijs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong. This season also proved very fruitful for him as he racked up a staggering number of goals and assists. The manner in which Ajax fans treated the departure of their "magician" says it all really. I've been counting down the days until he becomes a Chelsea player ever since he was announced! His peach of a left foot will definitely cause our opponents some problems, and he makes a fine addition to the Chelsea squad, providing some valuable experience whilst being in his prime.

Honestly, Chelsea hit the bull’s eye with the signing of Hakim Ziyech. What’s not to like about the player? He is versatile, can track back well and his vision is just sublime. Those signature diagonals from the right wing to find those runs on the opposite flank may just be what Timo Werner would love to feed on next season. Just visualizing that gives me goosebumps! Welcome Hakim Ziyech to Chelsea FC!

I am delighted to see the magician from Ajax, Hakim Ziyech, joining us today! An attack-minded winger who has the capability to use that left foot to cut in and shoot is something which Chelsea really needed. His instincts to take long shots and also to get into positions to finish off attacks will definitely help us find more goals in the coming season.
