Monaco star is a target for Liverpool

So far, Liverpool are yet to make any serious moves in the January transfer window and a number of potential targets have decided to stay with their current teams.Quincy Promes, Christian Pulisic and Mahmoud Dahoud all look to be staying put but the Merseyside side club are now turning their attention to defensive midfielder Bakayoko.22 year old Bakayko has been one of Monaco's star performers with the in Ligue 1, with 23 appearances and a couple of goals as well.

The Reds are prepared to fight for the Frenchman

This season, everyone has spoken about Liverpool's strength and pace in fast attacking moves, that tear defences apart, but there is no doubting that the side would benefit by having another midfielder in the side who gives some stability in front of the back line. Jordan Henderson's recent absence in this role was noticeable, with some far from great results, so it is an obvious position that needs to be bolstered.Known for his skillful, dribbling abilities and strong tackling, the Monaco star serves as combative midfielder in the centre of the pitch and would be a welcome addition to the squad. However, Liverpool look set to have to battle it out with Manchester United and Arsenal for Bakayoko's signature.
