Ajax star Ziyech not tempted by Sevilla chance

1st July 2019, 18:26 by Gareth Freeman

Hakim Ziyech is ready to reject the chance to move to Spain with Sevilla in order to remain with Ajax.

Sevilla have been linked with the Netherlands-born Morocco international for some time and it is understood they are prepared to match Ajax's 30million euros asking price.

Ziyech is open to a move away from Amsterdam this summer, but has stressed he would also be happy to stick with Ajax if the right move failed to materialise, and it seems he doesn't think joining Sevilla would be a big enough step up.

If the 26-year-old does remain at Ajax, which is looking increasingly likely, it will come as a huge boost to the Dutch champions, as they have already lost Frenkie de Jong since the end of the season, while the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Donny van de Beek are also expected to move on.
