Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech likened to Man City flyer Riyad Mahrez

New Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech has been compared to Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez by former Blue Tony Cascarino.

Ziyech will officially make the move to Stamford Bridge in the summer after the two clubs reached an agreement worth around £38m.

The Dutchman has previously been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United and Cascarino believes Chelsea have got a bargain.

“[Ziyech] has got everything,” he said on talkSPORT. “He’s a great set-piece taker, he’s a bit like Mahrez – he can go past people, he can dribble, he can go at you and just go past you, fantastic assist record, a hell of a talent.
