Valencia’s Bakkali wants Liege move

Valencia winger Zakaria Bakkali (pictured right) wants to join Standard Liege this summer, having spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna.

The Belgian winger – who has won two caps for his nation – is keen to return to the club where he spent three years as a teenager, although the deal could prove economically difficult.

Plaza Deportiva report the 22-year-old wants regular first-team football at a competitive club with the chance of winning trophies, with Los Che said to be open to negotiating.

Bakkali spent last season on loan at relegated Deportivo but started only 10 La Liga games and not finding the net during that spell.
