Chelsea are signing an absolute superstar in Hakim Ziyech.

As was widely reported yesterday, the Blues are on the verge of sealing a deal for the Ajax playmaker with personal terms close to being agreed.

It's a signing that will excite the Chelsea fan base and will likely leave rival fans across the world green with envy.

In his 159 games with Ajax so far, Ziyech has scored 48 goals and assisted a whopping 82.

The Moroccan is a playmaker with outrageous output, but there's even more to his game than putting the ball in the back of the net or teeing up his teammates.

He can thrive in deeper positions, can dribble past the opposition with ease and his passing range all across the pitch is criminally underrated.

A video from Score90 entitled 'Hakim Ziyech The Modern Playmaker' shows the Moroccan's highlights from the first three months of the 2019/20 season and they're simply remarkable.

So sit back, relax and watch a genius go about his work.

Wow. Chelsea fans, you're getting one hell of a player.

One fan commented under the video: "Every era has an underrated pure talent and Ziyech is this generation's most underrated player!"

Another quipped: "His game play and passing style reminds me of Ozil when He was at Madrid."

Compliments of the highest order and after watching seven minutes and 49 seconds of Ziyech in action, it is praise that is more than merited.

Ziyech on the ball vs Chelsea

So far in the 2019/20 season, Ziyech has eight goals and 21 assists in his 29 games in all competitions.

Only Tammy Abraham (15) in the Chelsea squad has scored more goals than the Moroccan this season, while no Blues player has registered more than six assists this season.

From a statistical perspective, Ziyech is everything this current Chelsea squad needs and the 'modern playmaker' will add so much more to Frank Lampard's side as well.
