Hakim Ziyech can leave Ajax in January/’strong interest’ from Arsenal – Calciomercato


Ajax standout

Hakim Ziyech has been on Ajax’s books since August of 2016.

Ajax would sign Ziyech from fellow Dutch side FC Twente for a fee believed to be close to £10m.

And that transfer sum looks to have been a real bargain, considering how well Ziyech has performed since joining the Dutch champions.

In 158 outings across all competitions for Ajax, Ziyech has scored 48 goals and provided a very impressive 82 assists.

Ziyech was also a key feature for Ajax as they reached the Championship League semi-final last term and his superb form has continued into this campaign.

In 28 games this season, the midfield maestro has netted eight and provided 21 assists.

Three of those assists came in one Champions League tie vs Chelsea with the Moroccan putting on a scintillating display vs the Premier League outfit.

Ziyech to Arsenal?

Given how well Ziyech has performed in recent years, it is somewhat of a surprise that no Premier League club has signed the 26-year-old.

But with the transfer window now open, could Ziyech be on the move?

The tricky midfielder is currently contracted to Ajax until 2022.

However, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Ziyech can leave Ajax in January.

The Italian outlet also claimed that there is a strong interest from Arsenal in Ziyech.

Arsenal could certainly do with some more quality in their attack if they wish to earn a Champions League spot.

However, the previously-linked report from Calciomercato claims that Ziyech is valued at €50m and given the Gunners have been out of the CL for a few seasons now and they spent big money on Nicolas Pepe over the summer, perhaps that fee may be a bit steep for the North London outfit.

The Mirror would also pick up the report from Calciomercato with the English outlet claiming Arsenal and Tottenham are leading the race for Ziyech.
