Former European champions Manchester United have been tipped to sign Ajax Amsterdam attacker Hakim Ziyech in the January transfer window as the Red Devils try to sign a creative player to boost their squad for the second half of the season.
According to the Manchester Evening News (MEN), Hakim Ziyech can provide the creative spark evidently missing from the Manchester United team on Sunday afternoon as they fell to bottom Premier League club Watford.
Manchester United suffered their worst result this season after they were beaten 2-0 by a Watford team that has only won once in the league this season before the game.

First choice goalkeeper David De Gea made a howler for the first goal scored by record signing Ismaila Sarr for Watford before he was brought down in the penalty box by Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka who was signed by the Red Devils in the summer.
From the resulting penalty, Watford skipper Troy Deeney didn’t make any mistake as he doubled the lead for his team three minutes after the opening goal from Ismaila Sarr.
Watford were able to secure their first win under new manager Nigel Pearson in just his second game.
For Hakim Ziyech, he has scored 31 goals outside the box for Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie which is a record in this decade and also has 85 assists which is also a record for this decade.
He can add the necessary creative spark to Manchester United.
