Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea’s signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.

Ferdinand hailed Ziyech as a good crosser of the ball. He also hailed the movement and finishing of Werner.

Ferdinand said: “We watched Ziyech last season for Ajax he was magnificent.

“He reminds me a little bit of [Manchester City star] Riyad Mahrez, but he crosses the ball a little bit more. He’s someone whose always trying to find a way to unlock defences with his delivery, a lot of guile.

“And Timo Werner, his movement and his finishing is phenomenal, we saw what he was like against Spurs. So they’re two talented players that definitely improve them.”
