Bakkali set for Valencia departure

Valencia winger Zakaria Bakkali looks set to leave the club this summer and is attracting interest from Holland, Portugal and Belgium, say reports in Spain.

According to Plaza Deportiva, the 21-year-old has little future at the Mestalla and has received proposals from a number of clubs abroad.

Born in Belgium to Moroccan parents, the winger joined Los Che from PSV in 2015 and has made 40 appearances in all competitions since, including 18 last season.

However, new Valencia Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral does not see him as part of his plans and has instructed the club to complete a sale.

The report concludes any deal may be tricky due to agent Jorge Mendes, with some at the club harbouring concerns he will reject affordable offers.
