Hakim Ziyech scored a magnificent goal on Wednesday, highlighting why Liverpool must consider signing him.

The Moroccan had a brilliant Champions League campaign last year and has picked up where he left off.

His goal against Valencia arguably topped any he managed last year, though, as he curled one into the top corner from 30 yards.

It was an unstoppable strike and one that showed off a level of quality that any club would love to have. Somehow, however, he remains at Ajax.

 

This is despite teams looking at him. De Telegraaf felt he was close to Sevilla in the summer, for instance, at a price of £26.9m.

We felt back then that Liverpool should look at him and beat the Spaniards to his signature. As it turned out, he stayed in Amsterdam and it banging in the goals for them.

That’s now five goals and four assists in nine Eredivisie and Champions League games this season. There’s little doubt that last season wasn’t a one-season deal.

Ziyech is a special player and one Liverpool should consider. Yes, he’s 26 and a little over the ideal age but he’s got several years of quality left in him.

He scores goals of the kind we haven’t had since Philippe Coutinho left and at the highest level.

If he’s still available for such a relatively low price, Liverpool need to be looking in his direction.
