Hakim Ziyech has already made a positive impression on Chelsea boss Frank Lampard by displaying some astonishing control and vision in a training match.
Ziyech signed for the Blues from Ajax back in February and is now eligible to train with his new team-mates at Cobham as he begins his integration process ahead of next season.
The attacker is ineligible to be involved against Wolves on Sunday as he is not registered in the Premier League squad.
But the 27-year-old has already showed why the Blues moved to sign him with a dazzling show of ability to set up Pedro to score in training.
While under pressure, Ziyech managed to delightfully dink the ball into the penalty area for Pedro to volley home with a sweet strike.
In the distance, Lampard can be seen clapping and shouts of ‘What a goal!’ from coaching staff and teammates can be heard.
Chelsea fans on the club’s Reddit page posted about their excitement at seeing the midfielder play next season.
One wrote: “7 more weeks mate. 7 more weeks.” Another said: “The wizard.”
One fan commented: “Damn Ziyech is already dominating our assist league.”
A second added: “You can already see the magic touch of Ziyech.”
While a third simply stated: “I came here to see Ziyech.”
Ziyech will feature in a brand-new Chelsea attack next season, with Timo Werner already signed and a deal for Kai Havertz reportedly close.
He put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the London outfit and discussed the move earlier this year.
“When you are a young guy, you always want to play for a big club, in the Premier League of course,” Ziyech told ChelseaTV.
“And when I was young the players that played here. It was always a big club so I’m very happy and it means a lot.
