Arne Slot, the new Liverpool manager, is already preparing for the next season and seems to have identified what could be the first signing for the Reds.

According to "The Sun," the Dutch coach wants to sign Justin Bijlow, the goalkeeper he coached at Feyenoord. Bijlow has been a key player for Feyenoord, known for his shot-stopping abilities and commanding presence in the penalty area. Slot sees him as a crucial addition to strengthen Liverpool's defense.

On the other hand, according to the "Daily Mail," Arsenal is also interested in the 26-year-old Dutch international goalkeeper. Arsenal's interest in Bijlow adds a competitive edge to the transfer market, as both Premier League clubs vie for his signature. The Gunners are looking to bolster their squad, and Bijlow's experience and skill set make him an attractive option.

It is worth noting that Kokçu, a midfielder for Benfica, was mentioned in the Turkish press as Arne Slot's first target at Liverpool. Kokçu, who played under Slot at Feyenoord before moving to Benfica, has impressed with his creativity and vision in midfield. His potential reunion with Slot at Liverpool would provide the team with a dynamic playmaker capable of orchestrating attacks and contributing defensively.

As Liverpool and Arsenal prepare for the upcoming season, the competition for key signings like Bijlow and Kokçu highlights the clubs' ambitions to strengthen their squads and compete at the highest level. Slot's familiarity with Bijlow and Kokçu from his time at Feyenoord could play a pivotal role in convincing them to join him at Anfield, as he looks to build a team capable of challenging for domestic and European honors.
