Arsenal are looking to secure the services of PSV's Zakaria Bakkali this coming summer, according to a PSV insider
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has gained notoriety of developing young talents, and the rumoured move could be consummated as it is corroborated by an unknown, yet reliable, source.
"Bakkali is a player that Wenger rates highly," the insider told Dutch media.
"Arsenal have kept an eye on him and are aware that other teams want him, so they could move in the summer to buy him."
Bakkali has made 20 appearances in all competitions for PSV, tallying 4 goals, while producing an impressive 87.8% pass success rate.
He is suggested to be worth £2million at the moment, but his stocks is expected to increase heading into the next transfer window as other clubs like Real Madrid and Benfica, who have sent out scouts to watch the Belgian starlet, are also interested in securing his services.
