Chelsea completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech back in February, and the 27-year-old officially became a Chelsea player from July 1.
The new Blues signing has admitted that signing for Chelsea is a dream come true for him, as he has revealed that he looked up to Chelsea legends such as Didier Drogba, John Terry and current boss Frank Lampard.
“When you are a young guy you always want to play for a big club, in the Premier League of course,” he told Chelsea TV in a recent interview.
“When I was young, the players that played here, it was always a big club so I am very happy and it means a lot. I was playing in the youth in Heerenveen and here was playing Drogba, Lampard, Terry, all those big names.
“We were always for Chelsea, and if you look at now, if you can play here it means a lot to me.”
There have been questions whether the Moroccan will suit the physical style of the Premier League, but he remains adamant that he has what it takes to make it in the Premier League.
Ziyech added: “Football is just playing with your head and being smart and creating spaces, and it is always in the small things.”
