Cody Gakpo, a Dutch forward, is said to be keen on joining Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven this summer.
According to Foot Mercato, Manchester United are determined to complete a deal for the 23-year-old and is confident of obtaining his contract for roughly €40-50 million (£34-42.2 million).
It will undoubtedly be a less cumbersome and considerably less expensive transaction than signing Antony from Ajax. And it appears that Erik ten Hag is now ready to ramp up his pursuit of the PSV star…
French publication Foot Mercato reckons that United is ready to bid up to £42.2 million in order to secure the signing of the PSV forward.
And what’s more, Gakpo is very keen to move to Old Trafford this summer according to FM.
We actually think that anything up to £42.2 million for Holland international would represent decent business for United. Gakpo has been described as a ‘sensational’ player by the well-renowned Twitter account Dutch Football. He has also been labeled as ‘superb’ by football journalist Josh Bunting.
He bagged a brilliant 21 goals and 14 assists in 47 games in all competitions for PSV last season. In the main, Gakpo is a right-footed left winger.
The seven-cap Holland international, on the other hand, can play anywhere in the front line and has plenty of paces and technical ability. He plays with a genuine sense of directness that United has lacked recently.
The PSV star is 6ft 2in tall, so he should be able to handle the rigors of the Premier League game.
Cody Gakpo would be a very wise signing for Manchester United this summer, in our opinion. Erik ten Hag simply needs to do this task as quickly as feasible in order to be effortlessly integrated into the team.
