Lille to sign Belgian Bakkali on a free this summer?

According to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Lille are set to make a signing this summer, namely that of Belgian forward Zakaria Bakkali, who currently plays at PSV Eindhoven. Bakkali’s contract runs down in June, so the Ligue 1 side will be able to sign him on a free come the end of the season.

Many would like a striker to come in right away for Les Dogues given their current inability to find the back of the net, but 18 year old Bakkali is injured until March, so a winter move makes little sense. Lille may face competition for Stoke City for his signature in summer.
