Morocco international Hakim Ziyech has resurfaced on Bayern Munich's rader following a string of eye-catching performances for Ajax Amsterdam.

The 26-year-old scored 21 goals and assisted a further 24 in 49 games across all competitions for Ajax this season, helping the club to a domestic double and the semifinals of the Uefa Champions League.

According to Bild, Bayern view Ziyech as a perfect addition in filling the void left by Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery; who are both set to leave the club at the end of the current campaign.

The report claims that the German club have already made contact with Dutch outfit regarding a possible deal. Ajax's director of football, Marc Overmars, has admitted that they will let Ziyech go for the right price, having come close to seeing him leave 12 months ago.

"He leaves when a top club comes. He is in focus because of his achievements in the Champions League.

"Many big clubs are buzzing around him. We promised Hakim to agree to a good transfer."
