HERE WE GO: Man Utd target agrees £37m plus add-ons, up to £50m package premier league move, Medical scheduled for today – Fabrizio Romano confirms
The winter market already has its first big ‘post-World Cup’ signing: Cody Mathès Gakpo from the PSV Eindhoven has made his transfer to Liverpool official.
Cody Gakpo’s offensive was crucial to Van Gaal’s strategy.
Fabrizio Romano reported that the transfer has been closed at 42 million fixed and another 14 million in variables. This means that Cody Gakpo becomes the most expensive sale of the Eindhoven side in its history, after ‘Chucky’ Lozano, who left for Napoli in 2019 for 45 million euros.
Cody Gakpo helped Netherlands reach the quarterfinals
The PSV winger was one of the biggest sensations of Qatar 2022. He was instrumental in helping the Netherlands reach the quarterfinals. Gakpo made a great performance, scored three goals during the World Cup in Qatar, and was an outstanding runner and kept on pressuring until scoring.
Before the World Cup Cody Gakpo had a great season with the PSV as he made a total of 13 goals and 17 assists in 24 games in all competitions. He was the undisputed “king” of the Eredivisie league in the Netherlands.
This contributes to Jurgen Klopp’s plans as he had had to replace Sadio Mané’s talents with a combination of efforts, Cody Gakpo’s adherence to the club will most certainly be good for Liverpool’s offensive strategy.
