Inter Milan join the hunt for Hakim Ziyech
Inter Milan are showing strong interest in Hakim Ziyech.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Inter Milan have joined the hunt for Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Morocco international joined Ajax from Twente for a fee in the region of 11 million euros in August 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
Ziyech has scored 19 goals and assisted 20 more across all competitions this season.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 26-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
As a member of Morocco national football team, Ziyech won 23 caps and he scored 12 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Inter Milan.
Luciano Spalletti has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The Morocco international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Spalletti wants to target in the summer transfer window.
His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.
According to Football Italia, “France Football report that Inter have joined the race to sign Ajax right-winger Hakim Ziyech, as the Moroccan has caught their eye in this season’s Champions League campaign. The Nerazzurri have targeted the 26-year-old for next season and are interested in making an offer to sign the former Heerenveen forward in the summer. Ziyech was very close to signing for Roma last year, but the Giallorossi went instead for Javier Pastore from Paris Saint-Germain. The Morocco international, who has scored 19 times in all competitions for the Dutch giants, has two years left on his contract and is valued between €35-€40m. Meanwhile, Liverpool, Barcelona and the two Manchester clubs are also rumoured to be interested in signing Ziyech.”
