El Ghazi has been in excellent form for Ajax this season, netting eight goals in ten Eredivisie appearances, which earned him his first caps for the Dutch national team in last months ties with Kazakhstan and the Czech Republic.

The 20-year-old is contracted to Ajax until 2019, but an offer over £10 million could tempt Frank de Boer to part with his star, who would join ex-Ajax duo Vurnon Anita and Siem de Jong in Newcastle.
