Roma target Ziyech costs €35m

Former Roma transfer target Hakim Ziyech of Ajax is on the market with a €35m price-tag, according to De Telegraaf.

The 26-year-old right-sided winger was on their radar for months when Monchi was director of sport, but the valuation was considered too high at €40m.

However, the Morocco international had a gentleman’s promise with Ajax to let him leave this summer and it’s reported in the Netherlands that they’ll accept €35m.

It remains to be seen if Roma will go back in for Ziyech, but new Coach Paulo Fonseca does play with wingers, so he would still fit their characteristics.

He scored 21 goals and provided 24 assists in 49 competitive games for Ajax this season, taking them to the Champions League semi-final.
