Former Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason loved playing with Hakim Ziyech and believes the midfielder will shine with Chelsea.

The duo played together at Heerenveen before going separate ways, but Finnbogason knew Ziyech was something special.

He told De Telegraaf, “Oh my god … And I already knew that he was good, huh. But what he has shown in recent years is not normal. That I had a good click with him? Who doesn’t have a good click with Ziyech is not a good striker. You just have to move well. He gives the balls exactly the way you want them.”

Ziyech swaps Ajax for Chelsea this summer and Finnbogason expects the Moroccan to be a star in England, “Without a doubt, the Premier League will be a big test for him. Players are better and more aggressive, but look at what he has already shown at Ajax with his qualities in the Champions League. He is something special and will be a big signing for Chelsea. The pressure will be great, but he can live up to it.”
