Man Utd and Arsenal can land Ajax player of the year Ziyech for just £25m as club confirm he will leave this summer

ARSENAL and Manchester United have been put on red alert after Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars confirmed Hakim Ziyech will leave in the summer.

The Moroccan international won the club's Player of the Year award for the second season running after helping his side win the domestic double.

Ziyech, 26, has chipped in with 21 goals and 24 assists in 49 games this campaign – including a fine strike against Tottenham in the Champions League semi-final.

Scouts have regularly watched the ex-FC Twente ace in action this term, with Bayern Munich linked with a move for the player to replace Arjen Robben.

It has been claimed that the Bundesliga side have already made contact with Ziyech's representatives over a summer switch.

Speaking of the Dutch youth international, 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 will be available for a relatively low fee of £25million due to a clause in his contract.

Discussing his imminent exit, the player said: "That [a move] will come by itself.

"When that happens, everyone will automatically hear it."
