Balikwisha has been on the radar of the Bruges residents for some time. He is young, talented, versatile and broke through last year at Standard.

Last month he already visited the blue-black training center where he had a conversation with trainer Philippe Clement. Club would pay around six million euros plus bonuses to the Rouches. German clubs also showed interest in the U23 international. He did not rule out a switch to the Bundesliga for a long time, but Club Brugge now seems to be pulling the longest straw. The player is expected to sign a five-year contract with Jan Breydel next week.
