“I don’t know” Club president admits they can lose Arsenal target anytime

Cody Gakpo has been in fine form for PSV in the Netherlands this season and that has caught the attention of Arsenal.

The Gunners alongside other top European clubs have been looking to add him to their squad at the end of this season.

He signed a new deal with the Dutch side not so long ago, which appeared to scupper any chance of him joining Arsenal.

However, it seems his present employers know that is not enough to stop him from stepping up to a top side.

In an honest assessment of his future, PSV director of football John de Jong said, as quoted by The Sun: “The interest started early in the season, when he performed well, also with the Dutch national team.

“My goal is to keep him for the season at all times.

“I don’t know how long we can keep him out of the hands of the big clubs in Europe. How he performs is the most important thing.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gakpo is a very exciting player in the making, and he could thrive under Mikel Arteta.

At 22, he is at a perfect age to join the current Arsenal rebuild and the gaffer can mould him into the perfect player for the club.

It would be exciting to see which players we add to our squad at the end of this season.

  1. Just check having Cody, with Anthony and raphinha on your from line combined with our gems martinelli, saka and Rowe…..we would just need a hold up striker to make these thrive and isak or victor can make good choices…

    Teams would cry the speed, intensity and flair they possess…..

    1. Fair point, but Artetaball encompasses none of those qualities.

      We are static no speed or pace in buildup or attack, intensity is hit or miss (see Forest match and liverpool most recently), and we haven’t had any “flair” since Arteta took over. He has killed any flair we had and replaced with static positioning and backpassing for the sake of possession.

      1. Not sure I agree. There are games when we demonstrate quick passing and build up. The issue is that it is not consistent, quick passes is what Arteta wants hence we have a ball playing CB and technical midfield.
