Liverpool, Arsenal chase African star

Ajax Amsterdam have removed the £26million release clause from Hakim Ziyech’s contract amid interest from English Premier League clubs Liverpool and Arsenal.

The Moroccan caught the eye of Europe’s biggest clubs with his performances in Ajax’s run to the Uefa Champions League semi-finals last season, and the Dutch club have now tied him down to a new contract.

According to a report from AS, the Eredivisie champions offered Ziyech an improved deal without a release clause included.
