Hakim Ziyech told to join Spurs this summer

Hakim Ziyech was close to leaving Stamford Bridge in January.

The Moroccan international came close to signing for PSG in the January transfer window but the move failed to materialise in the final moment.

Chelsea reportedly failed to hand in the paperwork in time even though an agreement was reached with PSG.

The 29-year-old started only five Premier League games this season, three of those came in his last four games.

He has often cut a frustrated figure at Stamford Bridge even though manager Graham Potter insists he’s an important player for Chelse despite his failed PSG transfer.

Former Spurs forward Rafael van der Vaart believes Ziyech ticks all the boxes for Spurs and would love to see him at the North London club.

“There’s a few missing links for me, I think. I’ve always said they’re missing a classic number 10,” Van der Vaart told Ladbrokes: Fanzone.

“The midfield, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur – when he is fit – is solid – but they’re missing a player who can pick up the ball between the lines, make space, turn, run at defenders and get the ball to Sonny [Heung-min Son] and Harry Kane.

“They’re missing something in that number 10 area, and I think the answer is Hakim Ziyech. He’s not happy at Chelsea, and I’m a big fan of his. If Tottenham were to bring him in, their problems are solved. I really don’t think they need much more.”
