Liverpool in "exploratory talks" to sign the next De Bruyne worth €25 million

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are intensifying their pursuit of KRC Genk's young talent Bilal El Khannouss, following initial interest from the Reds earlier this year.

According to a recent report by Voetbal Krant, both Premier League clubs are now actively engaged in the race to sign the 19-year-old attacking midfielder during the upcoming summer transfer window.

El Khannouss, who has been a standout performer for Genk, has notched three goals and eight assists across 43 appearances.

His skilful displays have not only caught the eyes of Liverpool and Tottenham but also attracted interest from Atlético Madrid.

It is reported that representatives from these clubs are frequently spotted at Genk matches, signalling a keen interest in the Moroccan international.

In addition to the Premier League and La Liga giants, Bundesliga clubs Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig have also shown interest in El Khannouss.

These clubs are reportedly waiting for a nod from Genk before they make their moves, hinting at a possible bidding war in the summer.

Currently, all interested parties are said to be in preliminary talks with Genk. With El Khannouss's contract set to last until 2027 and a valuation of around €25 million, Genk has yet to set a firm asking price for the promising midfielder.

However, it is becoming increasingly clear that El Khannouss is likely playing his last few games for the Belgian side, with a departure highly anticipated in the next transfer window.

The pursuit of El Khannouss represents a significant investment in young talent by both Liverpool and Tottenham, as they look to bolster their squads for the future.

As the summer approaches, the transfer saga surrounding the Genk star is expected to gain momentum, potentially resulting in a competitive struggle among Europe's top clubs to secure his services.

Why are Liverpool so interested in signing Bilal El Khannouss?

This season, the 19-year-old has three goals and assists but that doesn't tell you know to explain why Liverpool consider him to be such a promising player.

Some have even suggested he could be the next Kevin De Bruyne and while that's an unfair pressure to place on the teenager, he may well develop into the next superstar in Europe.

The video below will show you everything you need to know about El Khannouss. Speed, flair, pinpoint passing, gorgeous first touch and the confidence to back it all up.

The Moroccan could be the next big, big thing.

At €25 million (£21M), the Genk star could also turn out to be a bargain if he continues developing at the rate he is at the moment.
