Dutch legend Ronald de Boer says Chelsea new signing Hakim Ziyech has what it takes to be successful in the Premier League.


De Boer said the physical style of English football won't be a problem for the Ajax star, and labelled him an improved version of Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez.

“I find 'that physical', it makes no sense. Because when you see what he is doing. Physically he is incredibly good,” he said.

“The Silvas, the Messis, the Iniestas, are they physical? You wouldn't say so. No. But because they have so much footballing ability, they come to the surface. That will also be the case with him.

“I have to say: we just have to wait and see. Let's keep calm. We give him time to acclimatise, but I'm also an incredible fan of him. For example, when I see Mahrez from Manchester City: I think Ziyech has even more quality than Mahrez.”

Ziyech will join Chelsea at the end of the season for a fee rising to €44m.
