Ziyech Happy at Ajax Rejects Eventual Roma Interest

The talented trequartista is playing a great season at Ajax. Rumors from Italy are not distracting him. Roma should have done something before.

The love story between Roma and Hakim Ziyech goes on. But the player seems to be a little skeptical about it.

In a recent interview with Fox Sports, Ziyech almost rejected the giallorossi. “Roma? They should have thought about me last summer. Am I angry? Off course, I’m not. This is a different season. I’m doing better than last year. I’m totally focused on finishing this season with Ajax. We’ll see the situation then.”

Reportedly, Roma and Ajax had been in contact for a long time to assess the feasibility of a win/win deal for the Algeri international. But suddenly, the giallorossi had redirected their attention on Justin Kluivert.

The explosion of both Nicolò Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini closes the door to Ziyech. Although the offensive midfielder is a pure talent, Roma need a defensive playmaker at this time.
