Liverpool may rush to sign Johan Bakayoko in preparation for Mohamed Salah's absence Transfers

Since joining from AS Roma, Egyptian international Mohamed Salah has been Liverpool’s ace in the hole. This season he continues to lead the team in both goals and assists, and at the age of 31 he is still leading the attack.

However, Saudi Arabia is keen on the player and is rumored to be preparing a huge offer for him in next summer’s transfer market. In addition, he is scheduled to participate in the Africa Cup of Nations next January, and based on the strength of the national team, he is expected to be out of action until early February.

Liverpool may be prepared for this situation and may accelerate the acquisition of a potential right winger. ESPN reported that Liverpool could make a move for PSV Eindhoven forward Johan Bakayoko, who has been linked with the club for some time, in January.

Colombian international Luis Diaz and Dutch international Cody Gakpo have also joined the team in the winter transfer market, while the paper also reported that the Belgian winger is not a priority, as he will be a target after next summer.

The 20-year-old forward, whose reputation has grown rapidly over the past year, has shown that he is an excellent athlete. He has three goals and eight assists in 16 games so far this season, and has also represented Belgium in nine matches.

Although his scoring ability is lacking, his potential is extraordinary. It would not be surprising if Liverpool included him in their mid- to long-term plans, and the possibility of him playing at Anfield in the near future cannot be denied.

Will Liverpool be looking to secure another winger this winter?
