Arsenal target Hakim Ziyech is reportedly open to joining the English Premier League club.

Dutch journalist Marcel van der Kraan revealed on Sky Sports' Transfer Window podcast that the Morocco international would 'like' to play for a club like Arsenal, amid interest from across Europe for the Ajax Amsterdam playmaker.

Ziyech has attracted strong interest from several clubs following a superb season in helping the Dutch giants to a domestic double and the semifinals of the Uefa Champions League.

The 26-year-old scored 21 goals and assisted a further 24 in 49 games across all competitions for Ajax last season, pushing his price tag up to a reported £30 million.

Ajax, though, are open to selling their Player of the Season with director of football and former Gunners winger Marc Overmars having promised the midfielder that they would sell him if the right offer were to land on their table.

"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," Overmars said.
