Everton told to launch Cody Gakpo transfer swoop

Everton told to launch Cody Gakpo transfer swoop -Everton News

Everton could land a “massive coup” if they are able to secure a January transfer deal for potential World Cup star Cody Gakpo, according to pundit Noel Whelan. 

The Lowdown: Previous interest in Gakpo

Back in the previous summer transfer window, the Toffees were named as one of the clubs interested in signing the winger.

Other Premier League clubs such as Leeds United, Southampton and Manchester United were also linked with the PSV starlet, who has scored 82 goals in total for the club across 220 appearances in their senior and youth sides.

Now that the next January transfer window is approaching, it appears that the possibility of Everton making a move to sign the Dutchman has been the topic of discussion once again.

The Latest: Get it done

Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan told Everton to get it done, labelling a deal as ‘massive’.

He said: “If they can get him, it’d be a massive coup. There’ll be a lot of clubs looking at him. I’m pretty sure in January – he’ll be a player who can make a difference to any side, he’s a fantastic talent.

“If there’s a bidding war, Everton could find it difficult – with their league position and their style of play. But if they can get this deal over the line, it would be an absolutely tremendous coup.

“If they start coming up against Man United and other top sides, it could become a lot more difficult.”

The Verdict: A stunning move for Everton?

Regardless of Whelan’s doubts over Everton’s ability to sign Gakpo in January, the 23-year-old, who will be hoping to have a breakout tournament with the Netherlands in the upcoming World Cup, has shown this season why the Merseyside club should do all they can to secure his signature.

With 17 appearances under his belt this season across the Eredivisie and the Europa League, the winger has scored 12 goals and delivered 13 assists, boasting well above one direct goal contribution per game.

Hailed as an “electric” player by journalist Josh Bunting, Gakpo has also had more shots at goal (47) and shots on target (24) than any other player in his division, further highlighting the attacking talent he has.

Taking all of this into account, we agree with Whelan that if Everton were to sign the PSV figure in January, he would be a great signing for the club and an exciting addition to Frank Lampard’s squad.
