Roma legend Roberto Pruzzo has warned the Giallorossi against signing Hakim Ziyech, who has been linked with Everton and Liverpool this summer, from Ajax.
The Serie A side have been showing interest in Ziyech and have been in talks with Ajax to explore a potential deal.
Roma have already snapped up Justin Kluivert from Ajax and Ziyech has been tipped to take the same road after the World Cup, where he is in action for Morocco.
But Pruzzo does not feel Ziyech is consistent enough and says Roma would be wasting their time in signing the attacking midfielder.
The 63-year-old said on Italian radio station Radio Radio: "I would not waste my time on Ziyech.
"I love his game, but it goes in fits and starts."
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is claimed to see Ziyech as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho, while new Everton director of football Marcel Brands is well aware of the Moroccan's exploits in the Eredivisie with Ajax.
Ziyech, wearing the number 7 shirt, played for all 90 minutes of Morocco's 1-0 World Cup defeat against Iran on Friday.
