Report – Arsenal favourites to sign exciting Eredivisie attacker

Reports have continued to link Arsenal with a move for PSV attacker Cody Gakpo as he shines for the Dutch club.

The Gunners will bolster their attack when the transfer window reopens, and they have been watching several targets in the last few months.

Gakpo is one player they are targeting, and other clubs are looking to sign him too.

That should not come as a surprise when he has 18 goals and 15 assists from 43 matches in this campaign.

A report via Sport Witness claims Manchester City and Liverpool have also shown interest in his signature, but the Gunners are now leading the race for his signature.

Transfermarkt values him at 25m euros, which is a reasonable fee for his stats. However, PSV might ask for more.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It is a boost that we are now favourites to sign Gakpo, and we probably need to wrap up the transfer as soon as possible.

The Dutchman is still just 22 and he will get better if he moves to the Emirates and works with Mikel Arteta.

If we hesitate, another club could become interested and complete his signing right under our noses.

  1. He is an exciting young player, no doubt. Those goals and assist numbers likely won’t transfer to the PL, but what will cross leagues is his talent to create and finish.

    He can contribute next year, but his real impact likely won’t be felt for a couple years down the road.
    I would love to see the club get this deal done, his versatility across the attacking front is also a bonus.

  2. I love his strength and skill and the fact that he’s also tall,
    I think it’s a deal we should get done ASAP,
    It would really be a statement to get Darwin Nunez also, well nothing is impossible.

  3. Gakpo is a great talent and no surprise City and Liverpool are also interested in him. But I feel he will have more assured playing time at Arsenal and I hope Arsenal conclude this deal asap. Gakpo with Gabriel Jesus and a strong DM will take care of a lot of problems and Arsenal will be good to go and compete on all fronts with confidence next season.

  4. Do a double deal and get Ibrahim Sangare as well to solve our dm place, this guy with Partey would be a good partnership, a lot cheaper than Neves and Bousouma and a good age, should have got him before Psv, Gapko and him would be a good bit of business. Gapko still looks a bit raw, but in time could be a strong player.
