Ziyech has already managed to found back of the net five times and create four assists from nine appearances in Eredivisie and the Champions League during the 2019/20 season.
Meanwhile, both Arsenal and Liverpool are keeping tabs on another Ajax sensation Donny van de Beek who has also been a part of Dutch giants success last season.
Dutch playmaker has attracted interest from top teams across Europe with Real Madrid also in the hunt for his services and PL giants will have to splash money in order to lure 22-year-old playmaker away from Johan Cruyff arena
