Ajax set Hakim Ziyech asking price

Arsenal and Manchester United will reportedly have to pay a sum of around £30m in order to pursue the signature of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax this summer.

The Morocco international contributed an impressive tally of 21 goals and 24 assists for Ajax during the previous campaign and that helped them secure a domestic double for the first time in 17 years.

As a result, Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has acknowledged that the attacker is likely to be sold during the summer and it appears that they have set a reasonable price for his services.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal and United are among the leading sides in the running to sign the 26-year-old, who could be available for just around £30m this summer.

Still, the price tag should prove a hefty one for the Gunners, considering they have working on a limited pre-sales budget of just £45m following their failure to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Ziyech has two years remaining on his contract with Ajax.
