Arsenal target Hakim Ziyech lit up the international stage in a recent friendly. Ziyech scored twice as his Morocco side fell to a 3-2 defeat against Zambia.
This is just the latest reminder of his talent. And Arsenal need to make sure he is a transfer priority this summer. He could become a hit in North London.
According to The Sun, the Moroccan star is keen on a move to Arsenal. And with a £25m release clause, this is a no-brainer for the Gunners.
Ziyech proved his worth in the Eredivisie and the Champions League last season. The lively winger scored 21 goals and provided 24 assists in 49 games last season.
Ajax will struggle to hold onto Ziyech for the long-term future, especially with his relatively low release clause. He is worth a gamble for a top European club and Arsenal must make sure they win this race.
The 26-year-old could add genuine quality to the wide areas. Operating on the right and cutting in or from the left flank, Ziyech could be the missing link at The Emirates Stadium.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette could benefit from having someone of Ziyech’s talent supplying them. And Ziyech could also provide goals from midfield.
At just £25m, this should be Arsenal’s first summer signing. His latest performance shows that and his stock will only rise when he plays in the AFCON.
