The Morocco international will join the Blues from Ajax Amsterdam in a deal reportedly worth €40 million (R758 million), becoming Frank Lampard's first signing since the club's transfer ban was lifted.

Ziyech has put the footballing world on notice following his performances for Ajax in the UEFA Champions League in recent years, but he has been warned by his former teammate Anwar El Ghazi, who now plays for Aston Villa, about the physicality of the English top flight.

"You have to think about your muscles with so many games," El Ghazi told Voetbal Primeur.

"I thought I was big and heavy, but sometimes you run into a player and you think: is that a wall? But Ziyech is going to do well at Chelsea, 100%.

"Ziyech has his qualities and he shouldn't have to be physical. He's agile and can move well, because he's so thin.

"Going to the gym doesn't mean going to Basic Fit (a Dutch gym chain) to become a powerhouse.

"You can also work your core, train your abs, pull-ups. It doesn't make you a bodybuilder. Being in the gym doesn't just mean pumping and pumping."
