Liverpool are reportedly eyeing Johan Bakayoko as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah, should the Egyptian star leave the club in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Belgian international, who currently plays for PSV Eindhoven, has garnered interest from top clubs including Liverpool, Manchester City, PSG, and Bayern Munich.
Bakayoko, 20, has been in impressive form for PSV this season, featuring in 33 games and contributing to 19 goals with 6 goals and 13 assists. Sporting director Ernie Stewart has praised Bakayoko’s talent, stating that the young attacker is expected to move on from PSV this summer.
With Salah’s contract set to expire next year, Liverpool are considering their options for a potential successor. Bakayoko’s versatility and attacking prowess make him an attractive prospect for the Reds, who may need to invest £34 million to secure his signature.
As Liverpool prepare for a potential overhaul in their attacking lineup, the decision to pursue Bakayoko could prove pivotal in shaping the club’s future. Whether Bakayoko is the right fit to fill Salah’s boots remains to be seen, but Liverpool’s interest suggests they see him as a promising talent worthy of consideration.
