Rabat – Hakim Ziyech has his picks for the summer mercato (transfer window). The Moroccan football player is drawing the attention of numerous prestigious clubs, especially after he announced his wish to leave Ajax Amsterdam at the end of the season.
According to Calciomercato, Liverpool and Tottenham are now interested in signing Ziyech this summer, joining West Ham, AS Roma and Inter Milan, which have already expressed interest in recruiting the Moroccan sensation.
Liverpool will be in the market for another playmaker this summer, and have their eyes on Ziyech, who would fit the bill perfectly, according to the same source.
Tottenham has a great relationship with Ajax, having signed several players from the Dutch giant in the last six years.
The English club may strike another deal with the Amsterdam side, with Ziyech representing a creative midfield option.
Meanwhile, Italian clubs AS Roma and Inter Milan have been monitoring Ziyech’s performance and considering signing him since last winter.
Inter Milan has been in negotiations with Ajax over Ziyech since late 2016, with board members offering EUR 15 million for the Moroccan player.
Other European clubs seems to want their piece of Ziyech’s magic. Dortmund and Marseille both expressed their intentions to recruit the 25-year-old Atlas Lion.
Road to Spain?
The Moroccan playmaker has also raised the interest of Spanish club Atlético Madrid, which is ready to formulate an offer during the summer transfer window.
Ziyech wants to make his choice after the World Cup. “A lot can change after the World Cup especially if we lose, it can work to my disadvantage. But I do not think so,” Ziyech said to Dutch media outlet Voetbalzone.
However, the Moroccan player’s value is predicted to rise remarkably after the Russian World Cup, especially considering the fact that he recently received Ajax Amsterdam’s “Player of the Year” award for his excellent skills and performance this season.
The Moroccan has been sensational for Ajax, hitting 9 goals and 15 assists last season.
