Arne Slot approves Liverpool move for Johan Bakayoko

Liverpool have appointed Arne Slot as their new manager, and the Dutchman has now approved the acquisition of Johan Bakayoko.

It is no secret that Liverpool need to improve their squad during the summer transfer window. And reputed Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri has claimed that Arne Slot has now given the green light over a move for Belgian winger Johan Bakayoko.

The PSV Eindhoven winger has been outstanding this season, and he has 28 goal contributions in all competitions. The winger is valued at €50 million, and it will be interesting to see if Liverpool can secure an agreement to sign him. They will probably hope to sign him for a more reasonable price this summer.

Bakayoko will add pace, flair and creativity to the Liverpool attack. He can chip in with goals as well. So, it is hardly surprising that the Merseyside club will look to secure his services in the summer transfer window.

The talented young winger is likely to develop with coaching and experience. Slot could help him develop further and fulfil his world class potential. The Belgian winger is highly rated across Europe, and he has a big future ahead of him. He could develop into a key player for Liverpool.

Liverpool need Johan Bakayoko

Liverpool need more quality and depth in the wide areas. Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz are the only reliable wingers at the Merseyside club right now. They need more options if they want to compete with clubs like Manchester City and Arsenal next season. It will be interesting to see if the two clubs can finalise an agreement.

It is fair to assume that Bakayoko will be attracted to the idea of playing for Liverpool next season. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world, and the opportunity to join them can be hard to turn down. Furthermore, he will have seen Slot up close during his term  at Feyenoord. The Dutch manager will have monitored Bakayoko extensively as well.

The 45-year-old newly-announced Liverpool manager has an attacking approach, and the Belgian winger could thrive in his system. Slot has an impressive track record when it comes to nurturing young players, and he could help the player improve over the next few seasons.
