Hakim Ziyech feels he has made the right choice with Chelsea.

The midfielder will officially be a Chelsea player on the 1st of July, with Ajax receiving a fee rising to €44 million.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Ziyech said on Chelsea, “Now, everything feels right.

“Chelsea is a very big and nice club. There are a lot of talented youngsters, which puts me in a position I’m used to after the last three-and-a-half years at Ajax. It suits me well.

“Chelsea has a coach who loves attacking and attractive football in Frank Lampard. I feel the same way. We had some good talks. Lampard is really calm and presented himself well. We immediately felt a connection, which also convinced me to make this decision.

“Therefore, now is the time to make a move. I’m ready, also as a person. It will be a new phase of my life to be further away from my family and friends in London. I don’t see it as a struggle, quite the opposite actually. I’m really looking forward to it. I will give it my utmost, and will learn so many new things that will make me grow even further.”
