Hakim Ziyech will become a Chelsea player officially on July 1, as the Blues sealed his transfer back in February from Ajax.

Ziyech was one of the stars of the Ajax team, and the Moroccan international has been hailed as a brilliant signing by the Blues.

Ziyech is Lampard’s first signing at the club and he’s expected to help the Chelsea attack next season.

Alfred Finnbogason who played with Ziyech for two years when the pair were at Heerenveen, has revealed that any striker who does not ‘click’ with Ziyech isn’t a good striker.

“Oh my god,” Finnbogason told De Telegraaf when asked about Ziyech.

“And I already knew he was good, didn’t I. But what he has shown in recent years is not normal. If you don’t click with Ziyech, you are not a good striker.

“All you have to do is move. He gives the balls exactly the way you want them to be.

“Without a doubt, the Premier League will be a big test for him.

“Players are better and more aggressive, but see what he has already shown at Ajax with his qualities in the Champions League.

“He is something special and will be a big signing for Chelsea.”
