Mixed about the signing. Probably a deal that couldn't be wrapped up last month, so this was the next option.

That is utter madness. He would cost £80m if he played for a PL club.

Even though De Jong and De Ligt cost a lot signings from so called weaker league's tend to be a bit cheaper more often than not because there's still the "it's a weaker league" stigma.

There was also an agreement between Ziyech and Ajax that if he'd stay for another season (this season), they'd let him go for a fairly low transfer fee next summer. Ziyech is definitely a bargain at 40m euros, there's no question about it. Ajax are just considering themselves lucky that they had him for so long so they don't seem to mind the low transfer fee too much.

Wonder what's going on in Pedro and maybe Willian's heads right now seeing this signing. They both likely already know they're off. Hopefully Willian doesn't coast for the rest of the season. Probably finally go to Barca on a free.

2nd year in a row that we have done such deals. Pulisic last year, Ziyech this year. Who is next?

Buy him back and then sell him for triple the price. :ph34r:

If we do sign Boga back, then we're definitely not signing Sancho!

Ziyech is an upgrade on Pedro and will take his spot.

The Willian one is still up in the air. Lampard wants him to stay and if he does stay, then I highly doubt we'll sign Sancho (or even Boga for that matter).

Just a bit worried if he'll need a period of adaptation which at the age he's at he can't really be afforded because the physicality of the Premier League will probably come as a culture shock.

Having said that from what I've seen of him, and also what I've heard about him, he's a hard worker too and prepared to press and run, not just pleasant on the eye. A left footed attacker is also a big plus, allowing for more variation and options for Lampard moving forward.

I think whichever way you look at this though, a player who has torn up his league the last couple of seasons and played very well in Europe too, to be able to pick up for not much over £30m represents excellent value for business.

It also emphasises the transfer signings we've made since the summer of 2018, that we are focusing on players who will suit a more expansive, attacking mentality to the one previously used by the club.
