Arsenal boss Emery passes on Ajax midfielder Ziyech

Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech has been rejected by Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

The winger admitted it is his dream to play for the Gunners, but cash-strapped manager Unai Emery will look elsewhere this summer.

Emery only has £45m to spend on transfer this summer following his side's failure to secure a spot in the Champions League.

But the Gunners could have bagged themselves a bargain if they activated the 26-year-old's £25m release clause.

However, BBC Sport says Emery has passed on the chance to sign him.
