The Lowdown: Summer interest
The Whites were linked with a move for Gakpo over the summer and really firmed up their interest in the final days of the window.
Victor Orta even flew out to the Netherlands on deadline day looking to finalise a transfer, but as we now know, a deal never went through.
The club are still looking to bring the forward to Yorkshire in January, though, and it looks as if they are on the right track to do just that.
The Latest: Personal terms agreed
The Mirror’s Simon Mullock provided a transfer update regarding Gakpo on Saturday. He stated that Leeds have agreed personal terms with the player and are looking to agree on a fee with PSV.
The report claimed that Leeds are set to beat Manchester United to Gakpo’s services in what is a ‘crushing blow’ for Erik ten Hag’s side.
The Verdict: Huge
Gakpo, hailed as a ‘sensational player‘ by Football Oranje editor and Dutch football expert Michael Bell, has been in outstanding form this season.
He appears to be a huge talent and is already starring at a high level for club and country, so it could be a major coup for Orta to get a deal over the line.
It looks as if there could be a real chance of a transfer going through in the coming months, which may well give everyone at Elland Road a big lift for the second half of the season.
