Arsenal and Liverpool keen on Justin Bijlow

Arsenal and Liverpool are monitoring Justin Bijlow, with both Premier League giants looking to add competition in the position. 

According to Soccer News, Justin Bijlow could be a target for Arsenal and Liverpool ahead of the summer. The Premier League giants are looking to add a new goalkeeper as competition for their No.1 position, with both teams set to lose their current No.2 in the summer window. 

Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in Justin Bijlow

The media rumours linking Liverpool to Justin Bijlow might be seen as cliched as the former Feyenoord boss will take over the club with immediate effect. However, there are suggestions that the move should be separate from the manager’s arrival, as Liverpool is keen to add competition for places in the No.1 position. 

Caoimhin Kelleher will likely depart in the summer, as he will want to play as a No.1 choice elsewhere, with Celtic keen on the Irishman. The Idea would be to bring someone who can compete with Alisson Becker for the No.1 slot, and should Bijlow join in, he must resign from the Idea of not overthrowing the Brazilian, at least in the initial phase. 

Meanwhile, Arsenal is also set to make a change in their goalkeeping department. With David Raya’s permanent signing, they might also see a new No.2 brought in. Aaron Ramsdale could leave, with Newcastle United linked with the England international, as the keeper certainly wants to avoid spending another season as the No.2 choice. 

Arsenal have been linked with some names to replace Ramsdale, although none would come anywhere close to Raya’s quality. Hence, Mikel Arteta might retain the Idea of keeping the competition for the No.1 shirt alive, which is why the links to Bijlow make perfect sense. 

Will Bijlow join Arsenal or Liverpool?

Transfermarkt only values Bijlow at €13 million, which would be nominal for either Liverpool or Arsenal, although there are doubts about whether the keeper might even join those sides. While he might know Arne Slot well and could move to Merseyside, he will evaluate the competition from Alisson as a significant factor. 

Bijlow is an experienced star who will want to keep pl; playing as the No.1 wherever he joins. However, he might see the chance at Arsenal as better than at Liverpool, although he would still wait for a big club to make the move and sign him as their undisputed No.1.
