Roma target Ziyech seeks exit

Hakim Ziyech confirmed he wants to leave Ajax amid interest from Roma, Everton, Lyon, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.

The 25-year-old Morocco international came up through the Heerenveen academy, then shot to fame at FC Twente before Ajax bought him for €11m in 2016.

“From the January transfer window, I have been clear that it was my intention to leave Ajax in the summer,” Ziyech told Ajax Life.

“However, the situation has to be right at the next club. If that is not the case, then I will stay.”

Roma have long been interested in creative midfielder Ziyech, but face competition from all around Europe.

Also keeping an eye on him are Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Olympique Lyonnais and Everton.

This season he has contributed nine goals and a massive 18 assists in 39 competitive games for Ajax.
