Liverpool, City and Chelsea are in the race for PSV Eindhoven's 20-year-old forward Johan Bakayoko Transfers

Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international, has been on Saudi Arabia’s radar since last summer. Liverpool is said to want to renew his contract, but it is their last chance to get their hands on a huge sum of money and they have to make a difficult choice.

At the moment, there is no sign of him leaving, but in any case, acquiring a right winger to replace Egyptian King, who will turn 32 this June, is a priority in the reinforcement strategy.

While various players are on the list, including Wolves winger Pedro Neto, PSV Eindhoven’s Belgian winger Johan Bakayoko is one of the candidates.

International media reporter Patrick Berger of Sky Sport DE left a remarkable statement about the 20-year-old winger’s departure, saying that five clubs besides Liverpool, including Manchester City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, and Borussia Dortmund, are interested and could see movement this summer.

He suggested that five other clubs besides Liverpool are interested and could make moves this summer.

“Johan Bakayoko is a summer top target for European top clubs. Liverpool, City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund are monitoring his situation. Contract until 2027, no release clause. Price tag: €50-60m€. Brentford €40m bid in winter was rejected by PSV Eindhoven.”
