Long-term Brentford target admits his future is open – But believes €40-50m needed to make transfer happen – Sport Witness

Long-term Brentford target Johan Bakayoko has admitted he doesn’t know what lies ahead for him but believes it will cost at least €40m to sign him from PSV Eindhoven.

The winger has been speaking to ESPN, relayed by Voetbal Belgie, about his future and a potential transfer in the summer transfer window.

The youngster has long been linked with a move away from PSV, having established himself as one of the rising stars in European football with his performances for the Dutch side.

It means he’s already been heavily linked with a move away, and Brentford have often been at the front of the queue for him.

They were linked with a move throughout last summer, with it even reported that they’d offered a package worth €40m.

That deal was eventually not accepted, with the player preferring to stay where he was and continue his development in the Eredivisie.

He’s certainly done that, with six goals and 13 assists in 34 games in all competitions this season meaning he has continued the form which saw him manage nine goals and six assists in 39 games in all competitions last season.

A transfer in the summer could be on the cards, with technical director Earnest Stewart recently revealing he believes Bakayoko will look for a move. That should interest long-term suitor Brentford, but the player himself thinks he’ll prove to be costly.

“I think it’s quite funny. If he says that, I don’t know it either. I don’t know what I’m going to do and what the future will bring,” he said in response to Stewart’s comments.

“I didn’t expect his words. I haven’t made a choice yet and the season is still in full swing. I think it’s too early to say that now.

“What am I worth? You have to look at what other players can do. You have to look at why someone is worth more than another. If you look closely, I don’t think there are many players my age doing what I do, which means that other clubs will find me more valuable. I think they see that I do special things for my age.

“I don’t know what the prices are, but I think between €40-50m is reasonable.”
