Can Ziyech be Chelsea's new talisman

Chelsea are facing a difficult time to sign new players amidst the economic crisis.

However, in the midst of that, fans should not forget, that the Blues have already in all probablity signed their star man and new talisman in Hakim Ziyech.

Peter Crouch, former England striker and TV pundit believes Ziyech can be Chelsea’s answer in the Premier League. 

“I think he can light the Premier League up, I really do,” Crouch told BT Sport. “I love watching him, the majority of it is his influence in matches is what I love.

“He was part of such a young, vibrant Ajax side, but he’s going to a similar side at Chelsea. That’s what Frank Lampard wants at Chelsea, he wants young players.

“I know he’s not as young as he once was, he’s 27 now, but he was part of that side. He’s got a fantastic left foot, tremendous ability on the ball. When he drops deep he can pick a pass.

“We don’t know the situation with Pedro and Willian, they might move on. I think he will slip straight into that [spot] and become a huge asset for Chelsea, he can be a huge player for them next season.

“They lost Eden Hazard, one of the world’s greatest players and he got Chelsea fans off their feet. He was exciting to watch, he carried so much of the burden for Chelsea.

“I’m not saying [Ziyech] will hit the ground running and be a replacement for Eden Hazard, but I do think he’s got the ability to be something close to that.

“I think he’s got tremendous ability, he’s exciting, and he’ll be an asset to the Premier League.

“He’ll help players, the likes of Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham. If I was Tammy Abraham, I’d be licking my lips at some of the assists this man can provide.”
