The 21-year-old looks set to become the next superstar to emerge from the Eredivisie, having already bagged 20 goals in 58 league appearances for the Amsterdam outfit.
That earned El Ghazi the club’s Player of the Year award for 2015 and he’s also been capped by the Netherlands at senior level, featuring twice for Oranje.
According to Il Tempo, Liverpool are considering a summer transfer swoop for the 6 foot 2 attacker, but could face competition from Serie A outfit Lazio.
Ajax reportedly rate El Ghazi around the £15million mark, a sum Liverpool should be able to afford despite already spending significantly this summer.
And the news follows reports of fellow winger Sadio Mane suffering a shoulder injury during a recent Liverpool training session.
El Ghazi would be an exciting stand-in for the Senegal star, but manager Jurgen Klopp insists Sane’s injury is not serious.
