Sunderland have NO interest in FC Twente’s attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech, the Echo understands.

Sam Allardyce is keen to add an attacking midfielder to his squad this summer, as one of five priority positions that the Sunderland boss wants to address.

Speculation earlier this week suggested that Moroccan international Ziyech could fill that void after netting 28 goals in the Dutch league during the last two seasons at Twente.

However, Sunderland sources have indicated that Ziyech is not a player that the Black Cats are tracking as Allardyce looks at options to boost his squad.

Ziyech has also been linked with a host of other clubs in both the Premier League and Bundesliga.
