“Come to Arsenal” – These Gunners fans urge club to hijack major Chelsea transfer deal

Hakim Ziyech transfer news has some Arsenal fans in a panic.

It looks like loads of Arsenal fans are desperate to see the club make a late bid to hijack what looks a likely deal taking Ajax star Hakim Ziyech to Chelsea.

Reliable Dutch outlet De Telegraaf claim Chelsea and Ajax have a verbal agreement on a deal for the talented Morocco international, who has set the Eredivisie and Champions League alight in recent times.

We recently named Ziyech as a player who could be ideal to replace Mesut Ozil at the Emirates Stadium, while he’s previously been linked as a target for us by the Express, and it does seem a shame that Chelsea have been able to get in ahead of us on what looks an affordable deal at just €45million, according to De Telegraaf.

It may not be too late, though, with loads of Arsenal fans taking to Twitter urging the club to step up their efforts and hijack this move late on.

We’re not exactly optimistic this will be possible now, but here’s how fans are reacting to the big transfer news of the day…

    You can’t and you won’t. Chelsea have 150M to spend this summer, no way we can compete with that.

    And furthermore, let’s not get in a panic every time another club signs a player that has ostensibly set the world alight with his performances. We can’t sign all of them anyway. Just trust this management team to do the right thing.

      Ziyech would make an awesome Özil replacement….. and about “trusting our management”, they’ve not been doing a lot right lately, so, I don’t see any harm in trying to point them in the right direction

    Be a bummer seeing him end up at Chelsea…. he’ll improve them big time.
    Were we even in for him????

    I don’t think the Arsenal management has ever thought of bringing Hakim to Arsenal since day one. I don’t see a better way of proving himself to us that he is a premier league material than the games he played against Spurs and Chelsea. He has all the attributes of Ozil on top of speed and goal threats

    We are shopping in poundland this summer all our booty has gone. We can’t afford him.
