The Express And Star are reporting this morning that a host of clubs are thought to be interested in signing Walsall striker Amadou Bakayoko.

Walsall triggered a years option on his contract but Express and Star are reporting that Bakayoko is open to a move away from the club which gave him his chance in the Football League.

Championship, League 1, League 2 and clubs from abroad have shown interest in signing the Sierra Leone striker however Walsall are reluctant to sell but will listen to offers.

A move to a Championship club would involve a season long loan which would benefit Bakayoko’s development.

Bakayoko has suffered an indifferent career with the Saddlers. After breaking through as a youngster, Ama went onto score goals for fun for the reserves and youth team as well as scoring quite a few goals in the EFL Trophy – he topped the goal scoring charts in 2017 scoring six goals and also making the team of the tournament.

Bakayoko has scored eighteen goals in one hundred and six appearances for the Saddlers.
