Liverpool FW Mohamed Salah continues to receive interest from the Saudi Professional League.With huge offers of more than 100 million euros expected this summer, there is no guarantee that he will remain at Anfield next season when Jurgen Klopp leaves.
In addition, only Egyptian King, who will be 32 years old this June, will inevitably be replaced by a young winger. Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz, and Diogo Jota have been used on the right wing, but they are not concrete solutions at this point.
The search for a successor to the former Roma forward, who led the team to the title with numerous goals, is not an easy task, but it is a challenge that must be tackled and a hot topic. One of the targets is said to be 20-year-old PSV Eindhoven forward Johan Bakayoko.
According to Dutch newspaper Voetbalkrant, Liverpool’s interest in the player has not waned and they are still tracking his movements. Furthermore, Ernie Stewart, the Dutch club’s sporting director, has indicated that he will leave the club at the end of the season.
“I don’t think Bakayoko will still play at PSV next season,”
“It’s unbelievable what Johan does for someone his age. He’s played thirty great games in the past few months. At PSV and at the Red Devils [Belgium national team].”
As the paper points out, he has also made nine appearances for the Belgian national team since his debut in March 2023, and is one of the gems of the new generation of the country’s national team. At the club level, he has also started in the Champions League, and his reputation has grown rapidly over the past year.
The right winger has scored six goals in 33 games so far this season, and his decision-making ability is still questionable, but will he really leave Holland and step up his game?
