🚨 BREAKING NEWS: Coming live from Anfield, ” Liverpool is a great club playing for them will be a huge opportunity and a move I’m ready to make. Contact had been made with them and I agreed and I remain positive. The only thing I can say is that next season I will be on a football pitch somewhere”. Johan Bakayoko set for Liverpool move after player ‘said yes’ to transfer. According to reports, Liverpool are working on a deal to bring the Belgian international to anfield.


Liverpool transfer target Johan Bakayoko is set to showcase his talents today as Belgium begins their Euro 2024 campaign against Slovakia. Bakayoko, who played a key role in PSV Eindhoven’s Eredivisie triumph last season, scored 12 goals and provided nine assists in 33 league games, helping his team secure the title by a seven-point margin over Arne Slot’s Feyenoord.

Reports from Belgium suggest that Bakayoko is a top priority for Liverpool this summer. New manager Arne Slot has already endorsed the 21-year-old winger, who is seen as a potential long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah. However, Liverpool faces competition from Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, who are also interested in Bakayoko.

In a recent interview with Dutch newspaper Het Belang van Limburg, Bakayoko hinted at his future plans, stating cryptically, “The only thing I can say is that next year I will be on a football pitch somewhere.” Last summer, Bakayoko had the opportunity to join the Premier League when Burnley made an approach. Despite efforts from his compatriot Vincent Kompany, Bakayoko decided to stay at PSV.

“I received a call from Kompany last year,” Bakayoko revealed. “He explained his vision, and I shared my perspective. It was a good conversation, but that was last summer.” Brentford also expressed interest in Bakayoko, but he chose to focus on preparing for the Euros rather than moving to England.

Bakayoko explained, “I didn’t talk about leaving, so I didn’t understand why people were saying: ‘Oh, why didn’t he move?’ There was no option of leaving. But that’s part of football. People give their opinion. I see myself playing everywhere, anywhere. I follow the Premier League — I have friends there. I also have friends that play in Germany, so I watch a lot of games when they play. But this season I haven’t even talked about leaving. I was just thinking about preparing for the Euros, just trying my best to be fit.”

As Bakayoko takes the field today, his performance will be closely watched by several top clubs, eager to secure the talented winger for their squad. Liverpool, in particular, will be paying attention, hopeful that Bakayoko could become a key part of their future plans.
