• Transfers: Ziyech wants to leave Ajax: “I need a new challenge”

    The midfielder has been widely expected to leave Ajax after this season, despite having a contract until 2021. The midfielder has contributed nine goals and fifteen assists in the Eredivisie this season but has a turbulent relationship with a section of Ajax fans.

    Speaking to Algemeen Dagblad, Ziyech confirmed his wish to leave Amsterdam after two-years at Ajax, “I need a new challenge. At some point, it is time to go. Of course, I also played lesser games, but I just feel that I need a trigger in a different environment.”

    Ziyech doesn’t believe Ajax will stand in his way, “When I came here I said that I wanted to continue looking after two years. I have also discussed this with Marc (Overmars). If everything is right for Ajax and for me, then I can not see it go wrong. ”

    The 25-year-old joined Ajax from FC Twente in 2016 and has since made 80 appearances, netting 19 times and contributing 35 assists.
