Rabat – After leading Ajax Amsterdam to a major win over AZ Alkmaar (3-0), the Moroccan attacker Hakim Ziyech received the Ajax Amsterdam “Player of the Year” award, for his excellent season, skills and performance.
At the reception following the match, Hakim declared that the award took him by surprise.
Erik Ten Hag, Ajax Amsterdam’s manager expressed his ultimate satisfaction with Ziyech: “Hakim is an artist on the field” has declared Erik, “I would want nothing more than to keep him for Ajax.”
Ziyech has confirmed his will to leave Ajax Amsterdam for an unknown destination, with hopes of exploring himself, as he has stated “I think I’m ready to leave, I’ve said it many times, it’s not new. I want to challenge myself and develop myself, so maybe it’s time to go further and find a new challenge.”
Numerous European clubs are interested in recruiting the Moroccan footballer, including, Inter Milan and AS Rome. The two Italian clubs have been monitoring Ziyech’s performance and considering signing him since last winter.
However, the two clubs’ hopes of recruiting the attacker failed, as his value is predicted to rise in a notable way after the Russian World Cup.
The Italian club Inter Milan has been in negotiation with Ajax, since the fourth quarter of 2016, as the board members have made an offer of 15 EU million to hire Ziyech. Other European countries have expressed their intentions in recruiting the talented player, namely, Liverpool, Dortmund, and Marseille.
In terms of statistics, the talented Atlas Lion, known for his technique in dribbling and free kick ability, has scored nine goals and 15 assists this season. In total, Ziyech has scored 19 goals with Ajax since his debut with the club in 2016.
With those kind of stats, there’s reason to wonder: will Ziyech be crowned Netherlands best player of the year?
