Ajax attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech would fancy a move to Arsenal in the Premier League, according to reports.
The Gunners are looking to sign players with relatively low price tag and Ziyech falls in that category of players. The Morocco had a barnstorming season with Ajax, in which he led them to two domestic titles and shone at the UEFA Champions League.
Following his impressive display for Ajax, there were suggestions in May that he would leave the Eredivisie side to join a top club and Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool were linked with the tricky 26-year-old.
And now, Van der Kraan of De Telegraaf has claimed the player would fancy a move to the Emirates.
Marcel van der Kraan, journalist from De Telegraaf (Holland) said in ‘Sky Sport Transfer podcast’ that he knows that Hakim Ziyech would like to move to a club like Arsenal if they were interested in himhttps://t.co/95F6jE9O6c

Dalian Yifang have been play hardball over Arsenal’s move for long term target Yannick Carrasco. With this latest report, Arsenal may turn their attention to Ziyech who will cost Arsenal about the same price as Carrasco.
The Mirror claims Ziyech has a £25m release clause in his contract but there’s a huge debate over that.
Ziyech joined Ajax in the summer of 2016 in a €11m deal and he has been a revelation for them ever since. He scored 16 goals in 27 appearances for Ajax last term and should Arsenal sign him, they would have made a good investment.
