The Belgian side could, however, be without winger Didier Lamkel Zé after the player performed a bizarre stunt at the club’s training ground.

The winger is wanted by Greek giants Panathinkaikos and the player clearly wants the move to Greece.

Zé arrived at training wearing the strip of rivals Anderlecht who are currently one place and one point higher than Antwerp in the Belgian standings.

The Cameroon international joined his current club in 2018 from French side Chamois Niortais.

The 24-year-old has played just five times this season and wasn't used in the Europa League matches, the team finishing second behind Tottenham Hotspur.

Royal Antwerp will also have a new coach in the dugout after the appointment of Franky Vercauteren, who worked with Kemar Roofe at Anderlecht.

Former boss Ivan Leko departed for Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese Super League.
