Tiemoue Bakayoko, the French midfielder, who is currently playing for the French Ligue 1 champions this term AS Monaco, has been one of the most highly rated players for the upcoming summer transfer window. A number of big name clubs from the Premier League, including the likes of arch rivals Manchester United and Chelsea has been on the trail of the midfield enforcer, who has been playing a very crucial role throughout the current season to help them achieve the glory of being crowned the champions of French football.
The race for securing the signature of Bakayoko for the next season has been recently joined by Liverpool, who are currently monitoring the situation and are looking to make a move for the celebrated French midfielder. Jurgen Klopp, the recent coach of Liverpool, is determined to bring reinforcements into the team for the next season in the form of a number of key players including the French midfielder.
Making a comeback into the UEFA Champions League in the next season, the Reds are in obvious need of players who have experience at the top level in European football and have performed well there. Bakayoko has played a very important role in making Monaco reach the semi-final of this year’s Champions League, and has been one of the mainstays in the midfield for the current French champions. His partnership with Bernardo Silva on the pitch has been one of the highlights of the season for Monaco.
Reportedly, the 22-year-old midfielder has been valued at a whopping £50 million by his current club. Chelsea, the present Premier League champions are scheduled to sit for negotiations regarding the transfer of the Frenchman from Monaco in the summer. However, the Reds are considered to be in pole position for the bagging of the midfield marshal, given the fact that he will get more game time with them rather than the Blues.
Bakayoko is known for his towering presence in the midfield for his team, making crucial interceptions to decimate the building of attacks from the opposition. He also is equipped with the ability to thread key passes into the attacking third helping his teammates to score goals. He also has a knack to raid the opposition defence and score goals from time to time to put his team in the lead.
The entry into the Champions League next season has handed Liverpool a great opportunity to bring in the player from Monaco in the summer. Now it is to be seen whether they can capitalise on that or not.
