Arsenal and Liverpool were heavily linked with a move to sign French international and Monaco star Tiemoué Bakayoko in the winter transfer window.
In January, we covered a report (via Le10Sport) claiming that Liverpool and Arsenal contacted the Ligue 1 side to hire the services of the 22-year-old defensive midfielder. However, he eventually stayed with Monaco.
Liverpool are seriously looking to sign a solid holding midfield star this summer and have even eyed Porto’s Danilo not so long ago (Via A Bola).
If reports are anything to go by then Bakayoko is perhaps Klopp’s priority signing for the DM role.
Recently is has been reported that Klopp is set to get £150million to reinforce his squad in the summer transfer window and wants the likes of Williams, Bakayoko, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Van Dijk.
Monaco are currently on top of the French league table, three points above reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain, with only 9 games left in the campaign.
Bakayoko has been in top form and therefore has attracted interest from big clubs. He has featured in 39 games this season, scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist.
As per the provided Sun link, Tiemoue is rated around 40 million pounds. However, sources in France have recently suggested that he will only be allowed to leave for a mammoth fee of €60million. Even the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in securing his signature (via FootMercato).
In your opinion, should Liverpool splash €60million to sign Bakayoko?
