Barnes says Ziyech great fit for Leicester

Liverpool legend John Barnes believes Hakim Ziyech would be a great fit for Leicester City.

Barnes says Ziyech could thrive in Brendan Rodgers' system.

"I think (Hakim) Ziyech, the Moroccan at Ajax would be a great signing for the Premier League," Barnes told bonusbets.com.

"I think he could do very well here. He's plays a similar role to (Riyad) Mahrez, but I think he works harder defensively. I enjoy watching him.

"He could go to Man City or Arsenal and fit them, I think Liverpool are a bit different.

"But he could fit into any team that wants to play with the ball, in possession and move the ball quickly. A lot of teams do that in the Premier League. Leicester do it under Brendan Rodgers so that could be a good team for him."
