Sevilla want to sign Ajax attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech but would have to pay his €30m valuation by the club, say reports.
The 26-year-old starred for the club on their way to last season’s Eredivisie title and the semi-finals of the Champions League, netting 21 goals across all competitions.
He is currently at the Africa Cup of Nations representing Morocco and is yet to make a decision over his future, but De Telegraaf claim Sevilla hold an interest.
It is claimed that under sporting director Monchi, the Andalusian club monitored the player and considered paying €6m in the summer of 2015.
The following year, the Twente player joined Ajax in an €11m deal and he has since appeared in the Europa League final and this season, became a Champions League semi-finalist.
The forward-thinking player is now once again being monitored by Monchi – who returned to Sevilla in April, although a deal may still be a long way off.
The news comes on the same day that Sevilla are interested in PSV Eindhoven striker Luuk de Jong.
