Ziyech could have moved to the Premier League, with Swansea City interested, but has instead opted for a move to Amsterdam, where he will add some much needed creativity to Peter Bosz’s midfield.

Born in Dronten, Ziyech started his career with Heerenveen before joining FC Twente in 2014. In two seasons with Twente, Ziyech played 76 games, scored 34 goals and added 30 assists.

Despite being born in the Netherlands and representing the Oranje at various youth levels, Ziyech turned his allegiance to the Moroccan national team and has five caps for the African nation.
