Transfer news: Tottenham could have signed Chelsea new boy but Daniel Levy blew it 



Tottenham could have signed Hakim Ziyech but Daniel Levy blew it

According to a report by Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur could have signed Ajax star Hakim Ziyech before he agreed on a deal to join Chelsea in the summer. Former Spurs player Rafael van der Vaart had advised Daniel Levy to move for the playmaker but unfortunately, the latter did not pay heed to his words, as per the report.

Ziyech has been one of Ajax’s wildly successful players in the recent past. In the last three Eredivisie seasons, he has notched up assists in double figures on a consistent basis. In the ongoing season so far, he has contributed with 6 goals and 12 assists.

Considering the fact that Christian Eriksen has left us to join Tottenham, a player of Ziyech’s quality would have been a huge boost for our attack.

Injuries to Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have rendered us without options and we are also yet to find a replacement for Eriksen. We do have Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli but Ziyech’s experience and skills would have handed us an advantage.

Regardless, Ziyech has put pen to paper on a deal with our arch-rivals Chelsea. The Ajax star will officially join the Blues once the summer transfer window commences.

While it does taste bitter to lose a good player to a direct rival, let’s hope Levy comes through with some important transfers in the summer to make up for it.
