According to Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Arsenal are currently leading the race to sign Bakayoko. The Gunners are keen to bolster their attacking options and see Bakayoko as a perfect fit for their squad. However, they face stiff competition from Bayern Munich, Liverpool, and Chelsea, all of whom are keen on adding the Belgian star to their ranks.

The deciding factor in this transfer saga could be the amount of game time each club can offer Bakayoko.
