INSIDER: Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech would welcome Arsenal move

Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech would welcome a move to Arsenal, it has been revealed.

Dutch expert Marcel van der Kraan has revealed the Moroccan is ready to quit Holland and try his luck in the Premier League.

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars recently declared that the Moroccan international - who has a release clause of £25million - is free to leave in the summer.

Van der Kraan told the Sky Sports Transfer Window Podcast: "I know that the player is keen on a club like Arsenal, who have always played good football.

"Manchester City also under Pep Guardiola play a kind of Ajax style of football, as do Barcelona. But not all of these clubs will line up for him.

"I think that if Arsenal did not have Mesut Ozil, they would have been the perfect club for him. But now, he has to choose between clubs in the Bundesliga, two or three clubs."
