Sunday is usually a good day for Arsenal transfer gossip and today is no different with at least one rumour worthy of being characterised as very intriguing.
The Mirror is reporting that we remain interested in the services of Ajax star Hakim Ziyech. The Morrocon international has quickly become a very sought after individual with the likes of Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Liverpool also said to be keen.
It is further being reported that the 26-year-old is available for as little as £25 million.
Ziyech has been pivotal to the ongoing success of the Dutch giants this season scoring 19 goals from 39 appearances across all competitions and is joint top in the Dutch Eredivisie for assists with 12.
Ziyech truly burst onto the scene with goals in both legs of Ajax Champions League defeat of Real Madrid and considering his natural position is as a midfielder his goalscoring feats this season have been quite remarkable.
The fact that we are considered a potential suitor for the player and that his fee is well within our budget, you have to think that we stand as much chance as anyone of landing the playmaker.
From a personal perspective, this is one rumour I very much hope becomes a reality.
