Roma not ready for Ziyech yet

Despite Moroccan reports of an imminent €30m deal for Ajax star Hakim Ziyech, Italian sources don’t believe Roma have closed it.

Moroccan sports channel Arryadia claimed today that an announcement would be made on Monday.

The 25-year-old has just finished the World Cup with his country, so is available for negotiations and a medical.

However, Italian sources are doubtful and do not believe the transfer will be worked out that quickly.

Ziyech has long been on the Giallorossi radar, but he was put on the back-burner after a spending spree that included €24.7m for Javier Pastore from Paris Saint-Germain.
