bakkali bBakkali is set to leave PSV this January after a long dispute with the Eindhoven club, which has seen the winger banished from the first team after failing to extend his expiring contract.

The 18-year-old has been linked with Atletico Madrid, and Manchester United over the past few months, but his agent today revealed interest from Premier League side Stoke City.

In an interview with Voetbal International, Marcel Veerman said, “The most important thing for Zakaria is the chance of playing time. That is paramount.”

“Stoke want him, so therefore they are an option.”

Stoke City have invited the Belgian international for talks with the club, which could end with a offer being made to PSV. The Eredivisie leaders are keen to sell in January to avoid the talent leaving for free in the summer.
