Arsenal and Tottenham’s hopes of signing Ajax star Hakim Ziyech have been handed a huge boost, after the winger was told he can leave in January.
Ziyech starred in the Dutch club’s storming Champions League run to the semi-finals last season, and has been in equally good form this campaign.
The 26-year-old put Chelsea to the sword in the thrilling 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge in November, and has averaged a goal every three games in all competitions.
His form has put him on the radar of several elite clubs, with Arsenal and Tottenham both leading the race.
And CalcioMercato report the Moroccan international has been given the green light to seek a move away from the Amsterdam club this month, but can only leave if his asking price is met.
