Some major European clubs continue to keep an eye on promising Moroccan international Bilal Al-Khanous, a midfielder for Belgian club Genk, after he has convincingly established himself as one of the most outstanding young talents on the old continent.
And Hesport have learned from sources close to the player Bilal Al-Khanus that his agent has received important contacts from major clubs seeking to make an official offer to Genk to use his services, starting this winter transfer period.
For his part, Dimitri de Condé, sporting director of Genk, confirmed that the latter would not let a Moroccan player leave, whether it be this winter or summer Mercato. Unless he comes up with a financially attractive offer.
De Conde said in statements released by the Belgian press that “Genk will not sell a player this winter, not even summer, unless there is a big offer.”
And he continued: “Our goal is to continue to develop the ability of the young Moroccan player and we know that Genk is good at developing players before letting them go and Bilal knows this is the right place to develop.”
And Belgian media reports have confirmed that a deal to move Al-Khanus to any other club is expected to exceed the €35m transfer fee for Belgian player Charles de Ketilari from Club Brugge to AC Milan last summer.
Notably, promising Moroccan international Bilal Al-Khanous participated with the Moroccan national football team in the last FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022 and is considered one of the pillars of the Genk club despite his young age.
