Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas has now shared some interesting Tottenham Hotspur transfer news on a brand new target in PSV Eindhoven sensation Cody Gakpo.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye moves…
The trio of already-completed deals in Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissoiuma are reliably believed to be followed by yet more before the 2022/2023 Premier League season begins.
As reported, manager Antonio Conte wants to bring in a right-wing-back, central defensive star and new forward before beginning pre-season and attempting to build upon Tottenham’s find end to 21/22.
Their top four finish has granted them the riches of Champions League football and a £150 million equity increase from ENIC with those funds now being used to back Conte in the summer market.
The Latest: Thomas makes Gakpo claim…
According to Thomas, some interesting Spurs news has emerged as Fabio Paratici and co make contact to sign a brand new target.
He explained (via Twitter):
“#Spurs have also inquired about #PSV’s Cody Gakpo, I can exclusively reveal, but he is one of many #Netherlands players told by Louis van Gaal he must be playing regularly to get in the #WorldCup2022 squad.”
The Verdict: Make the move?
Called a ‘sensational player‘ by football-oranje.com editor and Dutch football expert Michael Bell, the 23-year-old has stood out as a very exciting player for PSV.
Who does Conte need to sign after Bissouma?
A world class centre-back
Indeed, Gakpo finished 21/22 in real style as their top goal scorer with 12 and assist-provider with a head-turning 13 (WhoScored).
The Netherlands ace also, unsurprisingly, ranked in as PSV’s best-performer by average match rating – having even attempted more shots at goal, made a higher number of key passes and completed the most dribbles per 90 out of their squad (WhoScored).
It’s little wonder Gakpo has turned Paratici’s head and is now a target for Spurs.
