Belgian wonderkid could be available for transfer following contract snub.
The likes of Manchester United and Liverpool are said to be on red alert following the news that Zakaria Bakkali has rejected a new contract offer from PSV, according to the Daily Express.
The outstanding Belgian teenager, dubbed the ‘new Eden Hazard’, is also being tracked by the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid ahead of a possible move in January or next summer as his future in Holland looks increasingly uncertain.
The 18-year-old enjoyed an impressive breakthrough campaign last season, becoming the youngest player in Eredivisie history to score a hat-trick, and looking like one of the most exciting young talents coming through in European football at the moment.
His fellow countryman Hazard has found great success since moving to the Premier League with Chelsea, and Bakkali could now look to follow in his footsteps as he looks to make the next step up in his career.
Both Liverpool and United were busy in the transfer market this summer as they signed a whole host of new players, but the possibility that Bakkali may now be available is sure to spark another transfer battle in the near future, as PSV will no doubt be keen to sell him soon rather than lose him for free.
