Roma loosen Ziyech grip

Roma are hesitating over Hakim Ziyech, allowing Liverpool and even Olympique Lyonnais into the race for the Ajax talent.

The Dutch club confirmed Justin Kluivert – who signed for Roma this week – and Ziyech would be leaving Amsterdam this summer.

According to Calciomercato.it, the Giallorossi had a deal in place for Ziyech, but put it on ice while closing negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for Javier Pastore at €18m plus bonuses.

This delay has allowed the 25-year-old Morocco international to look around and consider other options.

At the same time, Lyon slammed the door on Liverpool for Nabil Fekir, so the Reds are back on to Ziyech as a target.

It is even suggested that Lyon could eventually sell Fekir to Liverpool and target Ziyech as his replacement.
