Spurs fans on Twitter have been discussing Hakim Ziyech after Alasdair Gold shared his thoughts on the Moroccan international. 

Gold shared an article from his Football.london colleague Kristan Heneage about the 27-year-old, as he prepares to join Chelsea ahead of next season. The journalist suggests that former Spurs boss Martin Jol proposed that the Lilywhites should have made a move for the attacking midfielder, as he would have been ‘perfect for the club.’

Many Spurs fans flocked to this tweet from Gold.

How well do you remember Heung-Min Son's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

The former FC Twente man could already be well known to the majority of Spurs fans, as he scored the goal that looked to knock Spurs out of the Champions League last season, only for Lucas Moura’s dramatic second-half hat-trick to send Mauricio Pochettino’s side through to the final (per BBC).

Some Spurs fans suggested that Daniel Levy was a determining factor in why the club didn’t make an official approach for the Ajax ace.

Other Spurs fans blamed a lack of ambition and lack of spending power in the transfer window.

Overall, it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans would have liked to have seen the club try and sign Ziyech.

Do you wish that Spurs had signed Ziyech?

Yes

Yes

No

No

So far this season, Ziyech has averaged a superb 8.19 rating for his performances in the Eredivisie, and if he can replicate those sorts of performances in the Premier League, then Spurs fans will certainly regret that he joined Chelsea rather than their club.
