In 35 games across all competitions for Ajax, the 27 year old Moroccan international scored 9 goals and provided 18 assists.

Meanwhile, Ziyech has revealed his only regret ahead of his move to Chelsea.

“It’s a bit strange. You know that everything comes to an end. But it’s, you know…. It’s a strange way of closing this chapter,” said Ziyech.

Asked if he had ever imagined he would leave Ajax in such fashion, the 27-year-old replied: “No. Not what I had imagined, no.

“I am happy to take the next step, but you don’t want to end it like this. It feels as if you didn’t pass the exams, that’s how it feels.

“You’re powerless. It doesn’t feel like the season ended successfully.”
