Former Tottenham Hotspur star Rafael van der Vaart has urged his former club to sign ‘unhappy’ Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech.
Speaking to Ladbrokes: Fanzone, Van der Vaart said: “There’s a few missing links for me, I think. I’ve always said they’re missing a classic number 10.
“The midfield, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur – when he is fit – is solid, but they’re missing a player who can pick up the ball between the lines, make space, turn, run at defenders and get the ball to Sonny [Heung-min Son] and Harry Kane.
“Harry has to play that role himself; dropping deep to get the ball, feed it out, then try to get into the box to get onto the end of things.
“It’s too much for him; he’s a striker, he has to stay on the shoulder of defenders and score goals – that’s his game.
“They’re missing something in that number 10 area, and I think the answer is Hakim Ziyech.
“He’s not happy at Chelsea, and I’m a big fan of his. If Tottenham were to bring him in, their problems are solved; I really don’t think they need much more.”
