Hakim Ziyech TEAMtalk

Ajax forward Hakim Ziyech, who has been linked with Sevilla and Liverpool, reportedly does not have a release clause written into his contract.

Ziyech, who is under contract until 2021, has had a brilliant campaign with the Dutch giants – driving them into the Champions League semi-finals where they eventually lost to Spurs.

Premier League quartet Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Leicester have all been linked with the player, while there have also been links with a move to Roma, as well as Germany and Spain.

Ajax’s director of football Marc Overmars confirmed last month that Ziyech will be sold this summer, and speculation has claimed that it would take a fee of just €35m to bring the Dutch side to the negotiating table.

There have been claims that the Moroccan has a €30m buy-out clause written into his current deal, but Italian outlet state that the winger in fact does not have a clause set at all.

This means they can demand any figure they choose, and given that Frenkie de Jong will depart for €75m and Matthijs de Ligt looks set to follow out of the exit door, they are unlikely to wish to part with more star players.

Despite this, Ajax did sign winger Quincy Promes from Sevilla earlier in the week, who could be a possible replacement for Ziyech.
