Leeds: Whites still in the mix to sign Cody Gakpo

Leeds: Whites still in the mix to sign Cody Gakpo - Leeds United News

Leeds United are still in the mix to sign PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo and a ‘good offer’ could see him sold, according to a new transfer rumour.

The Lowdown: Gakpo a wanted man

The 23-year-old is having a sensational season for PSV, registering 20 goal contributions (11 assists and nine goals) in just 12 Eredivisie appearances.

Gakpo is wanted by a host of top clubs across Europe and Leeds have been linked with an audacious move for him, as Jesse Marsch looks to add star quality to his squad. Fabrizio Romano admitted that the club will try again to sign the Dutchman in January, and a new update has now emerged that suggests Leeds could still snap up the Dutchman.

The Latest: Leeds still in the mix

According to journalist Marco Timmer in an interview with Voetbal Primeur [via Sport Witness], PSV will hope to keep hold of Gakpo until the end of the season:

“If I were PSV, I would do everything I could not to sell [Gakpo] this winter. If you lose Gakpo, you might say goodbye to your title aspirations. But hopefully that will only be before next season. Then we can get some things back.”

He adds that a ‘good offer’ could be enough for PSV to sell, with SW name-checking Leeds in their report, although there will clearly be strong competition for his signature.

The Verdict: Too much competition?

Gakpo, who looks set to feature fo the Netherlands in the World Cup later this month, is a fantastic young player with a huge future, so Leeds even being mentioned in the conversation to sign him is hugely exciting for supporters.

Football talent scout Jacek Kulig has hailed his ‘absolutely crazy numbers’ so far this season and he could transform the Whites’ attack, bringing relentless end product to it.

That being said, Leeds could find it hard to compete with clubs who can promise Gakpo European football, so it is difficult to envisage him at Elland Road any time soon.
