Ajax director Marc Overmars has handed a boost to a number of Premier League sides interested in Hakim Ziyech by revealing the midfielder will leave for the right offer.

Ziyech, who is under contract until 2021, has had a brilliant campaign with the Dutch giants – driving them into the Champions League semi-finals where they eventually lost to Spurs

Reports have claimed that Premier League quartet Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Leicester were all keen on the player, while there is also interest from Roma and Real Madrid.

On Ziyech’s future, Overmars said: “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 [that we would] agree to a good transfer.”

Ziyech has amassed 21 goals and 24 assists this season in all competitions for Ajax this season, though the Amsterdam side are expected to sell a number of influential players such as Matthijs de Ligt and David Neres.
