Ziyech's transfer will reportedly cost the Premier League giants €40 million (R643 million), a relatively small fee for a player who has taken Europe by storm with his performances in the Eredivisie and UEFA Champions League.

Since his arrival at Ajax in 2016, the winger has contributed to 130 goals in 160 matches, and will be hoping to replicate his brilliance in one of the world's toughest leagues from next season.
