Chelsea want to sign PSV Eindhoven star Johan Bakayoko

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are reportedly monitoring the situation of PSV Eindhoven star Johan Bakayoko in latest Chelsea news

The 20-year-old’s incredible development has caught the attention of some of the biggest clubs in Europe. 

The youngster joined PSV in 2019 and quickly progressed through its youth ranks to break into the first team. 

This season, he has featured in 40 games across all tournaments, scoring eight goals and contributing 13 assists. 

Despite his young age, he has earned 77 senior appearances at the Philips Stadion, with over 30 goal contributions to his name.  

Chelsea have been highly impressed with Bakayoko as they have made him a top transfer target for the summer window, per journalist Patrick Berger. 

The Blues have endured an underwhelming 2023-24 campaign and will look to make a comeback next season by making some quality additions. 

Bakayoko is very young and talented, and he could be a smart acquisition for the Londoners. 

The Belgium international is described as a pacy forward with excellent balance who can play out wide or through the middle. 

The winger has a contract at PSV until 2026, having penned an extension in February last year. 

However, a deal for the 20-year-old will reportedly cost them around €50 million to €60 million.   

Not only that, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund are also said to be interested in signing him.
