Liverpool: Fresh Cody Gakpo rumour emerges

Liverpool: Fresh Cody Gakpo rumour emerges -Liverpool News

Liverpool remain interested in sealing a summer move for PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo, according to a fresh transfer rumour that has emerged.

The Lowdown: Gakpo linked with Reds move

The 22-year-old is enjoying a superb season for the Eredivisie giants, registering 13 assists and scoring nine goals in just 18 league starts in 2021/22 to date.

Gakpo has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent months, with Jurgen Klopp potentially seeing him as part of his front-three of the future, perhaps alongside Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz.

While Gakpo only extended his current PSV deal back in January, signing on until 2026, it looks as though a summer move to the Premier League could still be in the offing.

The Latest: Contact made

According to Voetbal International [via Sport Witness], Gakpo’s entourage ‘have already spoken’ with Liverpool regarding a summer transfer coming to fruition.

It is stated that the player himself feels he is ‘ready for a step towards a European top competition’ but PSV believe another year at the club could benefit him moving forward.

Who did these Liverpool players join from? First up, David James arrived at Anfield from which club in 1992?

The Verdict: Is he needed?

Gakpo looks like a supremely gifted talent who is already making waves in his homeland – former FC Twente midfielder Theo Janssen claims he ‘has everything’ as a player – so the idea of seeing him in a Reds shirt one day is exciting.

That being said, Klopp already has five magnificent attacking options to choose from, and unless Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino leave this summer, that will continue to be the case next season.

For that reason, it is hard to see Gakpo enjoying too much playing time if he moved to Anfield now, so remaining at PSV for another 12 months makes more sense, potentially then joining Liverpool in 2023 when one of that trio may move on.
