Some Tottenham Hotspur fans are reacting with envy to reports that a player with whom their side has been linked is heading to a rival.

The Telegraph reported on Tuesday that Tottenham are 'admirers' of the Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech.

But according to Voetbal International, Chelsea have since struck an agreement with the Dutch side.

 

It is claimed that Chelsea will pay up to €45 million (around £38m) for Ziyech, who has scored or assisted 29 goals in the same amount of games this season across all competitions, if he agrees to the move.

And this is what those of a Tottenham persuasion are saying about the news on Twitter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tottenham recently spent a similar amount on another Netherlands-based winger, Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven.

Bergwijn scored on his debut for Spurs against Manchester City earlier this month, but has recorded nine fewer goals and assists than Ziyech this campaign - an impressive tally nonetheless.
