Liverpool’s Interest in Chelsea, PSG Target Not Concrete, Fabrizio Romano Says

PSV Eindhoven winger Johan Bakayoko is in the news this week as a report links the young forward to top European clubs. Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, PSG, and Borussia Dortmund are closely monitoring the 20-year-old. 

According to the information from Sky reporter Patrick Berger, he notes that the asking price for the Belgium player is between €50 million and €60 million. Bakayoko has made 40 appearances this season for the Dutch club, scoring eight goals and 13 assists across all competitions.

Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano provided the latest regarding the PSV star and noted that Liverpool might not be a serious contender in the race. 

“I’m aware there have been some stories about Liverpool targeting talented young PSV winger Johan Bakayoko, but there is nothing concrete happening yet, nothing serious, with the Belgium international 100% focused on PSV,” Romano wrote in his column for CaughtOffside. “Still, it’s true that many clubs have been monitoring Bakayoko since last summer. 

“Scouts from English top clubs are always travelling to follow him, but it’s nothing more concrete than that for now, and at the end of the season we will likely see Bakayoko assessing his options. For Liverpool more generally, it’s still going to be crucial for them to hire their new manager before determining their transfer strategy.”

The Parisians won’t replace Kylian Mbappé with one player, but with a group effort, and that’s where Bakayoko comes into the fold. It will be interesting to see if PSG does get into a bidding war with several Premier League clubs or decides to look elsewhere.
