Popular Dutch commentator Jan Roelfs has backed Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech to have a successful career at Chelsea, and compared him to Ajax greats, Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten and Dennis Bergkamp.

“Ziyech will not be lost in England, he has so much quality,” Roelfs told NOS, cited by Tribal Football.

“When I make a list of Ajax players, I think of Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp and Hakim Ziyech, in that order. I really think he is close to that as a stylist.

“I go to the stadium for someone like Ziyech, that is an important condition for me. There are few football players like that.”

Chelsea reached a £33.4m deal to sign Ziyech from Ajax in February, and the Moroccan can't wait to get started at Stamford Bridge.

“I am delighted and proud to have signed for such a huge club as Chelsea,” Ziyech told the club’s website.

“I am looking forward to next season and hope we can achieve great things together.”

Ziyech will officially join the Blues on July 1.
