Arsenal 'end interest in Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech'

Arsenal reportedly decide against making a move for £25m-rated Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech in order to focus on other targets.

Arsenal have reportedly ended their interest in signing Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech.

The 26-year-old is reportedly available for as little as £25m this summer, making him affordable for the Gunners, whose transfer kitty is thought to be just £45m.

The budgetary constraints could see the London side priced out of a move for Wilfried Zaha and Ryan Fraser, particularly as Unai Emery is also keen to bring in a new full-back and centre-back, with the latter required due to Laurent Koscielny's desire to leave.

BBC Sport reports that Arsenal have carried out a detailed analysis of Ziyech but decided against a move in order to focus on some of those other targets.

Ziyech scored 21 goals and created a further 24 across all competitions last season as Ajax won the league and cup double in addition to reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have also been linked with the likes of Kieran Tierney and Ruben Dias but have so far only brought in Gabriel Martinelli this summer.
