Brentford could be handed a second chance at PSV Eindhoven star Johan Bakayoko this summer as his current deal won’t be extended by the Dutch side.
That’s according to Eindhovens Dagblad, who cover the player today and agreement between him and PSV that his current deal ‘will not be extended’.
The newspaper explains that deal was agreed in February and all the relevant parties are happy with it, so there’s no need for any further negotiations at this point.
There are interested parties, though, including Brentford, who made a €40m bid in the summer but saw it ‘kindly declined’ by both PSV and the player.
That stance may have now changed, though, with the lack of desire to renew the player’s contract and the plan for a sale after this season suggesting both parties are more than willing to part company at some point.
Whether Brentford are willing to spend big money to get him remains to be seen particularly given their current squad has three right wingers already in Bryan Mbeumo, Kevin Schade and Michael Olakigbe.
The chance is there nonetheless, should they wish to revive their efforts from the summer transfer window.
