‘Jackpot for Genk: first bid for El Khannouss underway’

The standout player at KRC Genk in the victory against Union was once again Bilal El Khannouss. Wouter Vrancken’s turntable seems to be on his farewell tour in Belgium, because a top transfer during the summer mercato is gradually becoming inevitable.

In recent months there have been a lot of rumors about El Khannouss, who is ready for a step up. Since he is still stuck in the Cegeka Arena until mid-2027, the Limburgers can aim for the absolute jackpot for the 19-year-old Moroccan. Especially because there is no shortage of interest.

El Khannouss to Leipzig?

El Khannouss has already been linked to top teams such as Liverpool, Atlético Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund. The 12-time international appears to be particularly sought after, especially in the Bundesliga, because RB Leipzig has also been interested in him for some time.

What’s more: according to transfer specialist Sacha Tavolieri, the number five in Germany now has the best credentials to sign El Khannouss next summer. Because they see him as the ideal successor to Xavi Simons, Leipzig is already working hard on discussions with El Khannouss and his entourage.

The Condé demands jackpot

Negotiations that were apparently going well despite the departure of sporting director Max Eberl. “El Khannouss remains a priority for Leipzig, who are currently preparing an official offer and would like to finalize the deal as quickly as possible in the coming weeks,” Tavolieri added.

Genk obviously wants to get the most out of it for the home-bred goldcrest, whose market value is estimated at 25 million. There seems to be less haste on the part of Limburg to complete the file completely before the start of next season. Undoubtedly to be continued.
