Carra surprised Liverpool haven't made move for outstanding Ziyech
- Chelsea have announced the signing of Hakim Ziyech.
- Jamie Carragher thought the Reds could look at the Moroccan as well.
- The 26-year-old could've been a great cover for Mane or Salah.
Chelsea have completed the transfer of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax for €40m potentially rising to €44m. Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is surprised that the Reds have not tried to acquire the Moroccan magician.
"The Ajax lad was outstanding last season in that Champions League run," the 42-year-old told Sky Sports.
"He was a player I thought actually Liverpool may look at as well; he can play both sides, maybe as cover for Mane or Salah.
"But it looks like Chelsea have gone into the market and they're going to do get something done already."
Ziyech has been sensational for Ajax. Since joining the team in August 2016 in an €11m move from Twente, Hakim has scored 48 goals and provided ridiculous 82 assists in 160 games.
Last term, the Moroccan has won a well-deserved Eredivisie Player of the Year award, led de Godenzonen to a domestic double and reached the Champions League semi-final with the team.
Since the beginning of the 2018/19 campaign, the 26-year-old scored 29 goals and registered 45 assists in 78 games across all competitions for Ajax, including 8 goals and 21 assists in 30 matches this season so far.
