Ajax have opened negotiations with Chelsea over the possible loan transfer of Hakim Ziyech.
Ziyech has been out-of-favour for a starting role under manager Thomas Tuchel, and he is expected to leave the club before the transfer deadline.
AC Milan were linked with him earlier this summer, but they were reluctant to include an option to buy at the end of the ongoing campaign.
Ajax, on the other hand, are willing to do so, but a move will depend on the future of Antony, who is the subject of strong interest from Manchester United.
The Dutch champions are currently negotiating with United for the 22-year-old, and a deal worth €100m could be finalised for his departure.
If that happens, they will make an official loan approach for Ziyech. Ajax are prepared to include a €25m buy clause for their former player.
