We have earlier pinpointed Hakim Ziyech as the perfect signing for Leicester. The Chelsea winger is on a grand run in the Qatar World Cup as Morocco with Ziyech in the team has reached the quarter finals after an impressive game vs. Spain, going through on penalties.
Hakim Ziyech (29) has been in great form and might not have had a dream about this happening when he announced his retirement from international football back in February.
His situation at Chelsea looks far from good as the former Ajax player only have been involved in 5 PL games this season. Hard competition for places is of course a key reason for him not being in a starting eleven, and it might be that Chelsea will listen to offers for the player that might have three or four great seasons left.
His link up play with PSG right back Achram Hakimi is something to notice, and they are probably the most exciting right flank combination of the tournament.
Hakim Ziyech is a player that makes those penetrating passes and can set up pacy players as he combines well on the flank with a full back and as we all know Timothy Castagne or Ricardo Pereira would be perfect in a link up with him. His vision on the ball and through passes would also be perfect for Patson Daka and Jamie Vardy.
AC Milan is said to be a favourite to land Ziyech in the January transfer window, and some believe Serie A would be the ideal place for Ziyech to play, but still Leicester should have been on the radar for this player as he suits the pattern of play and the pockets would be filled with strawberries and plums for Vardy and Daka to pick up.
Leicester needs to look at this shelf of players and to bring in a few fringe men from the so called major clubs in PL might not be the worst idea, as we have seen other players such as Harry Maguire and Donny van de Beek being linked up, both in a similar situation at Manchester United.
