Edwin van der Sar has confirmed that Ajax are bracing themselves for yet more turnover in their squad.
Arsenal were among the several teams to be linked with a move to sign Hakim Ziyech after his stunning season last year.
Now Van der Sar appears to hint that the player could be on the move in the summer. As reported by football.london, the Ajax CEO told De Telegraaf:
Next year Ajax will undoubtedly also lose players again.
The midfield maestro was one of Ajax’s key players in their run to the Champions League semi-finals last season.
Unlike Frenkie De Jong and Matthijs de Ligt, he remained with the Dutch giants but is now being linked with moves away once again.

Ziyech is a really exciting midfield talent and one that it would be great to see in the Premier League.
Arsenal have been severely lacking a consistent source of creativity in their side and Ziyech could go a long way to solving that.
He already has 11 assists in all competitions this season and at the age of 26, he should be approaching his prime.
In the Eredivisie this season, Ziyech has averaged 3.5 key passes a game, proving he can open up a defence with ease.
He’s a player that has had to do things the hard way, coming through the ranks at Heerenveen before joining FC Twente and then eventually Ajax. Once again, he now looks ready for the next step after impressing for the Dutch giants both domestically and in the Champions League.
