Hakim Ziyech has certainly picked up where he left off last season.
Ajax’s influential play-maker surprised everyone by remaining in Amsterdam after an impressive World Cup with Morocco. And Ziyech is continuing to establish himself as arguably the most gifted player in Dutch football, inspiring Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing against AZ Alkmaar while taking his tally to four goals and three assists in eight Eredivisie games.
But Ziyech’s agent, speaking to Voetbal Primeur, has now indicated that the 25-year-old could do better than the side sitting eleventh in the Premier League table.
"That would be crazy for that boy, he should not go to Everton. “What are you doing there?”, Rene Van der Gijp said.
Ziyech was heavily linked with AS Roma over the summer, but his representative obviously feels that an ever bigger club would be a more fitting destination, such as Everton’s bitter rivals Liverpool.
"I hope that there will be a better club than Roma, an Arsenal or Liverpool,” Van der Gijp adds.
Ziyech signed a new improved contract with Ajax back in September, suggesting that he will not be on his way any time soon regardless of where Van der Gijp feels he should go.
