I know that Arsenal has a fairly small transfer budget and that it would take one hell of a player for us to blow the majority of that transfer budget on a single player but if the most recent reports about Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech are accurate then we should move heaven and earth to sign him.
Apparently, the Dutch giants want just over £30 Million for him, that for me is a massive bargain.
Make no mistake the 26-year-old is a brilliant player, he ran the Tottenham defence ragged and on the few other occasions I have seen him I have been mightily impressed and looking at the various opinions on him I am not alone in holding him in very high regard.
Liverpool are also said to be keen on the attacking midfielder and you can take it to the bank that they will not be the only other club wanting to sign the Morrocon International.
Ziyech, I believe, would fit in perfectly at the Emirates, he is proper quality, he runs with the ball beautifully, he has a wonderful shot, an eye for goal and goes past players as if they were in a coma.
We can all have our opinions on what we think of some of our own players but I will be honest, I cannot think of many better than Ziyech and if we have to sell to get him then so be it, he would be a huge addition.
It should also not be forgotten that in the past he has admitted his fondness for Arsenal
“Well, I have two clubs. They are Arsenal and Barcelona. That is my ultimate dream,” he said back in 2017 when asked which clubs he would like to play for.
He is just 26 and could give us at least five years of top quality football and £30 Million seems a tremendous bargain and if we are serious about strengthening the team this summer then we must move fast before any of our rivals swoop in and grab hm.
