Data shows why Ziyech would suit Milan better than Dybala and Asensio

A collection of statistics shows why Hakim Ziyech would suit AC Milan better than Paulo Dybala and Marco Asensio next season, a report claims.

As has been reported by @Scout19Calcio on Twitter, a comparison between the three Milan targets puts the Moroccan winger in pole position to be signed by Milan.

Ziyech was definitely not able to produce his best form at Chelsea last season as he struggled for a defined role under Thomas Tuchel.

Using data from Wyscout and Fbref, it was clear from heat maps that Ziyech has the highest work rate of all three and in the 18/19 season at Ajax he was known as the ‘pressing monster’.

His best recent season had an xG of 17.12 and he scored 24 goals in all competitions. Dybala’s best xG was 11.65 but he did manage 26 goals.

There are merits to all three players but the conclusion from the data is that Ziyech is the most complete player for Milan right now, followed by Dybala and then Asensio.
