While De Jong and Matthjis de Ligt took many of the plaudits after the club won the domestic double, Ziyech was essential to their success as he went on to win the club’s Player of the Year award.
The winger scored 21 goals and registered 24 assists in one of the best campaigns of his career to date.
It was confirmed by Ajax chief Marc Overmars last month that Ziyech would be allowed to leave this summer.

‘He leaves when a top club comes,’ Overmars said. ‘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.’
Liverpool are looking to add depth to their squad after winning the Champions League this season while for Arsenal, they are in need of creativity to feed both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Ziyech name-checked the Gunners in an interview in 2017 as a club he could see himself playing for in the future but after missing out on Champions League football next season, they could have their work cut out to get him.
He is set to be part of the Morocco squad at this summer’s Africa Cup of Nations and clubs will be looking to wrap up a deal quickly to save his price increasing further should he impress for his country.
