Liverpool are reportedly one of four teams interested in signing Ajax ace Hakim Ziyech this summer.

Jurgen Klopp is not resting on his laurels following a promising season which ended in a Champions League final appearance.

And he’s already wrapped up a deal for Brazil international Fabinho, who’s swapped Monaco for Merseyside in a £44m move.

Klopp is eager to sign a replacement for playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who left Liverpool for Barcelona back in January.

The latest reports from Italy indicate a raid on Ajax could be on the cards ahead of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.

According to Calcio Mercato, Liverpool have renewed their interest in getting Ziyech on-board.

And that comes after the Morocco international’s agent, Mustapha Nakhli, travelled to England earlier this month.

Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton are also said to have their eye on Ziyech as the Marco Silva era begins.

While there will be competition from Italy, where Nakhli was recently spotted, in the hunt for the 25-year-old’s signature.

Roma are keen to snap Ziyech up as they look to close the gap on Juventus and Napoli in Serie A next season.

And Nakhli was spotted at their Stadio Olimpico home as Roma chiefs look to get the ball rolling.

Borussia Dortmund complete the quartet of clubs weighing up swoops to prise Ziyech away from Ajax.

Ziyech is currently on duty at the World Cup with Morocco and featured in their 1-0 defeat to Iran on Friday.

His involvement in this summer’s tournament in Russia may mean it takes time to complete a deal.

Liverpool might have to follow up their interest with an offer sooner rather than later though given they are not the only team tracking the former FC Twente man.
