Premier League duo West Ham and Everton are being linked with respective moves for Ajax star Hakim Ziyech.

According to claims from Italian news outlet Calciomercato, the Hammers are interested in signing the Morocco international from Ajax as he continues to impress in the Netherlands.

Ziyech was linked with West Ham during his tenure with FC Twente and he has gone from strength to strength since joining Ajax.

In 31 Eredivisie appearances this season, the 25-year-old has found the net on eight occasions. He has also chipped in with an impressive total of 13 assists for his teammates.

Valencia, too, are touted by Calciomercato as potential suitors for Ziyech and it seems Ajax could struggle to retain the playmaker’s services when the summer transfer window comes around.

West Ham’s creative players have been in good form this season but it seems they remain on the lookout for another attacking midfielder to bolster the ranks ahead of next season.
