Former Tottenham Hotspur star Rafael van der Vaart has urged club chairman Dan Levy to snap up Ajax Amsterdam sensation Hakim Ziyech.
The Moroccan playmaker has made an excellent start to the new campaign after helping Ajax to the UEFA Champions League semifinals in the last campaign, and Van der Vaart feels the time is right for him to make the step up to the Premier League.
“I really hope he goes to Tottenham Hotspur, I sent a message to Levy, I said: ‘Get Ziyech after this season’.
“I am convinced that he becomes a sensation in London, and I also wish him that. I hope Spurs takes him and we will see,” Van der Vaart told Voetbal Primeur.
Spurs have been linked with Ziyech, 26, in the past and could up their interest once more after five goals and give assists in 10 Eredivisie matches so far this season.
Van der Vaart, who played 109 times for the Netherlands, featured for Spurs between 2010 and 2012, having also played for Ajax and Real Madrid.
