He’s been a highly touted prospect for awhile. Didn’t realize he was already 26.

He would have been a decent addition to the squad but is he any better and/or has a higher ceiling than what we have? No not really. We need either quality or highly talented youngsters, Ziyech isn’t either of these. Outside of the exploits of de Ligt and de Jong no one else really stands out. Ziyech has goals and assists but so does Tadic and he was out of his depth in the EPL. Even bloody Huntelaar is still in the goals and he’s ancient. If we’re going for anyone from the Dutch league it has to be Lozano (Napoli bound?) or Bergwijn (Ajax bound?)

He's been outstanding in the Champions League so I'm not sure this is relevant. And the stuff about Tadic isn't exactly true. He was great at Southampton for a fair while but I think they became a shitter team and their style of play changed.

Averaging 6 goals a season over 4 seasons at Southampton is far from great. Llorente has been pretty impressive for us in the Champions League but he’s not good enough or young enough for what we need. Ziyech is a decent player but he’s no Son, Eriksen, Kane, or Bale.

In an interview in 2017 when asked what his dream team to play for would be he gave 2 answers. Arsenal & Barcelona.... I think it's safe to rule this one out. Totally looks like he'd fit in over at the goons considering how much I despised him in that 2nd leg. I don't want him at Spurs. I hope Poch doesn't either.

Really? So he once said it would be a dream to play for Arsenal or Barcelona! At the end of the day if someone has a dream to play for Arsenal, Barca or any other big team it should not come in to anything moving forward. We won't sign him going by all information received, however if we did that comment in 2017 would not change anything about his performances if he agreed to come.

Sorry to pop up if already killed elsewhere, but seems odd that there is not much progress on this guy. Yes he’s gone to the AFCON but he was another of the Ajax players who shone on their CL run and they have confirmed he will leave this summer.

Some rag red tops linking him now to Arse/Ud/LFC for £30m ish. Would be a useful addition to our squad at that price?

He would but he's not needed.

We have Lamela who really is a seed that never fulfilled its promise and Dele who needs to up his attacking game.We cant buy Ziyech but he is a tough player who would be great in Pochs system.Now if Lamela can be sold....

I swear it was reported that he was being courted by Arsenal and he was keen on them. Can't find the links but it was around the time of our games vs them.
