Ajax Stance On Selling Hakim Ziyech To Arsenal Revealed


Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam are willing to let one of their best players leave this month as long as their asking price for him is fulfilled.

Hakim Ziyech is a Moroccan international and also one of the best Ajax Amsterdam players attracting the interest of clubs in the Premier League including Arsenal.

According to CalcioMercato, Ajax Amsterdam are demanding €50m (£43m) for Hakim Ziyech who is also a person of transfer interest for North London side Tottenham Hotspur.

Hakim Ziyech joined Ajax Amsterdam from fellow Dutch top flight side FC Utrecht in a £10m deal in 2016 and has become an important player for the ex-European champions.

He was a top performer for the Ajax Amsterdam side that reached the Champions League semifinals last season and scored three goals plus three assists in eleven games in the competition.

Ziyech scored 16 goals and 17 assists in 29 league matches for Ajax who emerged as champions plus winning the Dutch Cup.

He has already scored six goals in 17 league games.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has talked about the possibility of strengthening his team in the current transfer market and his focus is likely to be defensive minded especially after the long-term injury to Calum Chambers.
