Hakim Ziyech has been a letdown at Chelsea since joining from Ajax in 2020. Despite being skilled and talented, the 29-year-old has struggled to replicate the performances he used to put in at Ajax.
He’s fighting for minutes at Chelsea after making just one start for the club this season. Tottenham, who were defeated 3-1 by Arsenal, have been urged by former player Rafael van der Vaart to sign Hakim Ziyech.

He believes Ziyech will help Spurs beat Arsenal and Manchester City to the Premier League title. Arteta’s men have had a fantastic start to the season, and they are currently ahead of both Chelsea and Tottenham on the league log.
Van der Vaart told Ziggo Sport:
“Hakim Ziyech has to join Tottenham. ‘If Tottenham get Hakim Ziyech, they could win the Premier League. I am serious.”
“There is another transfer window coming up. It is sad and a shame. Ziyech is a great player. We have to see someone like that, we watch TV for such a player and we come to the stadium.”
“It is a pity for the whole of football that he is on the bench. If these kinds of players do not get minutes, it is not good for football. There should actually be a rule that clubs can only have a certain number of players.”
“So they [Chelsea] have way too many and that actually makes football less interesting. A player like Ziyech could just play at another club and entertain the fans.”
