Journalist Dean Jones has now shared an exciting Man United transfer update involving Netherlands international star Cody Gakpo.
The Lowdown: Gakpo dazzles in Qatar…
Before his country’s World Cup elimination at the hands of Argentina, the 23-year-old was dazzling under former Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal.
Gakpo scored three goals in five appearances for the Netherlands in Qatar with the PSV Eindhoven ace proving why he is such a hot commodity in football right now.
The attacker also highlighted why Man United and manager Erik ten Hag are so eager to bring him to the Premier League with reporter Jones now sharing a very promising update on their pursuit.
The Latest: Jones shares exciting Gakpo to Man United update…
Speaking to GiveMeSport, the journalist claims United are hopeful of signing Gakpo in January and the player will be pushed forwards now.
“Gakpo is going to be pushed forwards now and there is actually hope they could land him for around the £40million mark, from what I’m hearing.
“It also sounds like Rashford will be considered as a centre forward more frequently too, so that probably makes Gakpo’s versatility appealing.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
Gakpo’s form in Qatar only brings more attention to his rising pedigree with the Dutch star also racking up an incredible nine goals and 12 assists in just 14 Eredivisie appearances so far this season.
