Bakkali ‘days from Valencia’

Valencia are close to the signing of PSV Eindhoven winger Zakaria Bakkali, according to reports in Spain.

Super Deporte say Bakkali, who turned down a new contract with his club and is available on a free transfer, has reached an agreement with owner Peter Lim.

Sevilla were also linked with the Belgium international but he appears bound for Mestalla, although it’s not clear if Coach Nuno Santo has the 19-year-old in his plans for next season.

Dutch publication De Telegraaf say as well as Sevilla, the likes of Lille, Celtic, Stoke City, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon and Anderlecht all showed interest.
