Ajax have revived their bid to take over Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea, who is being targeted as Antony’s replacement.
The Moroccan winger joined from Ajax for £38m in 2020 but has since struggled to secure a regular first-team spot alongside Thomas Tuchel.
Ziyech has fallen further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge after the summer arrival of Raheem Sterling, who scored twice in the Blues’ 2-1 win against Leicester on Saturday.

In addition to the ex-Man City star, the 29-year-old continues to battle Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi for a spot in Tuchel’s front three.
Sports post revealed on Sunday that Ajax is finally ready to accept Manchester United’s £84million offer for star winger Antony, and the Dutch side has already lined up Ziyech as a potential replacement to Alfred Schreuder’s right-hand side.
Although the Red Devils turned down a £74m bid on Friday, Antony is keen to reunite with his former boss Erik ten Hag and it looks like Ajax is ready to part ways with their Brazilian winger.

The Eredivisie giants dropped Antony from their match selection to play against Utrecht on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ziyech remains scoreless after playing just 26 minutes under Tuchel this season.
