Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech has revealed he will only leave the Dutch club if he is offered a chance to join a team that would match his ambitions.
The Moroccan international has been in scintillating form, having scored 19 goals and provided 20 assists, helping his side to the Champions League semi-finals.
Asked about his future, Ziyech said he won’t rule out leaving the Netherlands this summer:
“Anything is possible. I am always someone who is very picky and there must be a club that I want to trade in for Ajax. That doesn’t just happen.”
Reports in Germany this week have suggested that the 26-year-old is being eyed by Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Leicester City. Liverpool and Manchester United have also previously been linked with the player.
Ziyech generally plays off the right-hand side, which means he could be a possible option if Eden Hazard departs. Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic are both flexible over which wing they can play on but the Ajax winger would play mostly from the right.
Even so, any move for the winger would depend on FIFA’s transfer embargo being lifted on the club.
