Maduro urges Arsenal to go for Ajax star Ziyech: Better than Ozil

Former Ajax and Valencia star Hedwiges Maduro believes Arsenal should move for Hakim Ziyech.

Maduro says Ziyech would be perfect for the Gunners' attacking pair, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

"With his energy, Ziyech would now fit perfectly there, behind Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang," Maduro said on FOX Sports.

"For example, it would be a little different if he would go to Manchester City or Barcelona immediately. I think he would do better than Özil this season.

"At Ajax, Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong are the absolute top players. You can put them in any team. Players like Ziyech and Donny van de Beek really have to find a team that suits them in terms of playing style. And I think Ziyech at Arsenal would fit: it is a team that wants to play offensive and play football."
