Morocco winger Hakim Ziyech will not be playing in the Atlas Lions' upcoming games against Malawi and Argentina due to a muscle injury.

The team, who have already qualified for the African Cup of Nations, will face Malawi in a qualifier away on Friday, before meeting Argentina in friendly four days later in Tangier.    

The 25-year-old sustained an injury during his side's 1-0 loss to Alkmaar in a Dutch league game on Sunday.

Ziyech has produced many fine displays with Ajax this season, helping his side reach the UEFA Champions league quarterfinals at the expense of defending champions Real Madrid.

He has scored 14 goals and provided 12 in 21 league appearances so far this season.

Reports have said that Premier League club Chelsea are showing interest in the player.  

Ziyech, who started his international career in October 2015, has 23 caps and has scored 12 international goals.
