Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah is approaching veteran territory in terms of age, with interest from Saudi Arabia. Liverpool is looking for a long-term successor on the right wing, with Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Pedro Neto among the candidates.

Belgian international Johan Bakayoko, who has scored and assisted numerous goals for PSV Eindhoven, is another target, and the club could reportedly make a move for him this summer.

Speaking about the 20-year-old right winger’s future, Belgium U-15 national team coach Arno Van den Abbeel said that he is ready to make the step up and that he is ready to play for a strong club that is a regular in the Champions League.

“I think he can make the next step. You see it with Jeremy Doku as well. Now he made the step and he is successful.”

“Time will tell, but I think he would do well in England as well, or with another top level club. For him [Bakayoko], I think the next step in his evolution is trying to keep playing Champions League. Being in the team that plays Champions League, so in a top team and then from there on he can make a make a jump.”

“He’s already an international now playing for Belgium, so he’s making the right steps and I think he has it all planned in his head, so I’m not going to say what he has to do. I think he himself knows what to do. He has made the right decisions until now. So I have full confidence that he will achieve his dream and he will keep making the right decisions.”

Rousing the Kop

In addition to his excellent physical skills, his speed and technique are also first class. Will this young talent, who is being scouted by mega clubs all over Europe, leave the club where he spent his academy days and where he will play for the first team from 2022…?
