Borussia Dortmund are said to be keeping tabs on PSV Eindhoven duo Johan Bakayoko and Jerdy Schouten ahead of the summer transfer window.

The two sides recently met in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, with Borussia Dortmund coming out on top 3-1 on aggregate. Now, the Black and Yellows seemingly have two PSV Eindhoven players on their radar. Sky Sport are reporting that Johan Bakayoko and Jerdy Schouten are both on BVB's list of targets.

Jerdy Schouten has impressed since joining PSV Eindhoven from Italian side Bologna in the summer. Capable of playing in both defensive midfield and at centre-back, the 27 year old has made a total of 33 appearances for Peter Bosz's side this season.

The report adds that former BVB midfielder and current assistant coach Nuri Sahin is especially a big fan of Schouten, who has more than three years left on his current PSV contract. The Dutch side could put a price tag of around 30 million euros on the midfielder.

Johan Bakayoko is also enjoying an excellent season with the Dutch Eredivisie champions-elect. The talented Belgian winger wasn't able to make much of an impact in the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund, but has eight goals and 13 assists to his name in 40 appearances across all competitions.

Several big clubs are said to be interested in signing Bakayoko, including Manchester City, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea. So it remains to be seen if Borussia Dortmund would be able to afford a move for the 20 year old, especially considering their reported interest in signing Jadon Sancho on a permanent transfer in the summer.
