Transfer: Four Premier League clubs in battle to sign Ajax star

Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool will reportedly go head-to-head in a bid to sign Ajax star Hakim Ziyech. The 26 year-old Moroccan playmaker has been linked with a move to the Premier League following his recent rise.

Ziyech has been very instrumental for Ajax this season as the Dutch outfit chases a historic treble. Sitting atop the Eredivisie, Ten Hag's men are currently in the final of the domestic cup and look set to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League after stunning Juventus and Real Madrid earlier in the knockout phase. 

The attacker's impact has been massively felt in his team's running in the respective competitions as he has successfully scored 19 goals and assisted 20 across 39 appearances. According to the UK tabloid Mirror, Ziyech could be available for just £25 million despite being contracted to Ajax until 2021.

The publication also states that Man City has identified the Moroccan international as the potential successor of Ilkay Gundogan whose future at the club is currently in doubt. Similarly, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United aim to boost their respective squads ahead of the 2019/2020 season with Ziyech's signing.

German outfit Bayern Munich is also reportedly keen on bringing the Ajax stalwart to the Bundesliga.
