Hakim Ziyech Already Has An Insane Number Of Goals And Assists This Season
Hakim Ziyech has scored 8 goals and assisted 20 so far this season and it's only December.
The Ajax midfielder has seen key teammates such as Frenkie de Jong leave in the summer but it's not stopped him continue his sizzling form.
Ajax are top of the Eredivise by six points and are yet to be beaten this season.

The Dutch side are also top of their Champions League group by 2 points and look certain to qualify for the next round.
Ziyech has been a key part of Ajax's success over the last few years.
The 26-year-old joined the Amsterdam giants from FC Twente for a paltry 11 million euros.
Since then he has gone on to become one of the world's most sought after midfielders.
His array of passes make for beautiful viewing, especially a sublime cross field ball against Bayern Munich last season.

One stand out moment this season also came in their Champions League group.
It came in Ajax's crazy 4-4 draw with Chelsea in November.
Although the goal was registered as an own goal from Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, it came from Ziyech's absurd technique to bend a free-kick from a difficult position.
This about as unlucky as it gets :see_no_evil:
Hakim Ziyech's cross hits Kepa square in the face and goes in. Wait for the slow-motion replays... :grimacing: pic.twitter.com/NRJb5JHeQx

The Moroccan was linked with a variety of big clubs throughout the summer but he stayed in Holland.
It's also been rumoured that his contract has a ridiculously low release clause that nobody has activated yet.
If he stays in this rich vein of form, it's hard to see someone of that talent not make a big move in the next few years.
Where do you think Ziyech would fit in best should he leave Ajax?
