Van Persie sends a message to Arsenal over transfer target

Robin van Persie is a fan of Arsenal target Cody Gakpo and the former Gunner has revealed why he admires his fellow Dutchman.

Gakpo has been in fine form in the last two seasons and nearly left PSV at the start of this campaign.

However, he remained at the club and continues to deliver top-notch performances under Ruud van Nistelrooy.

He was close to joining Leeds United in the summer, but he could now join a bigger club like the Gunners.

For Arsenal fans who do not know what the winger brings to a team, an impressed Van Persie has listed them.

“He is a good player,” Van Persie told BT Sport via Mirror Football

“He always finds a way in most games to have an influence, in terms of making an assist or a goal, he’s always dangerous.

“He is not really an out-and-out striker. He can play as a No.10, he can play on the wing, or as a false striker, he can play in those four positions in front. He has a good physique, he is strong, fast, he can dribble. He is an all-round player.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gakpo is clearly a top talent and has proven it this season in the Europa League for everyone to see.

The attacker is still just 23 and that makes him an ideal target for Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners are rebuilding with players under 25 and Gakpo will help them continue with that plan.

  1. Arsenal must go for Mykaylo Mudryk or Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (Naples).
    Gakpo should be a third choice unless he’s available this upcoming window in january

  2. Arsenal can’t sign Gakpo now even if they want to do it but until in the next Jan window before they may or not sign him. And this means that Arteta has to work on the players who he has on his hand now to bring the very best out of them and bring it out unfailingly for Arsenal to be Winning marches regularly and win them. Irrespective if the opponent teams their are playing against are top teams or lower League placed teams does not really matter. For, Arsenal have to beat any teams in all competitions who play againsy them. And beat them to win matches and titles this season.
    And this leads Arsenal to today’s proceedings in the Epl which saw Man City upsurge them to top the table but albeit by playing a game more.. And Tottenham won but Chelsea lost as us Gooners would have taken note of,
    However, those results obtained today in the Epl by some of Arsenal top six rival teams has made it compulsory imperative for Arsenal to also get a good win underr their belts by performing a top Premier League game winning performance at home to beat Nottingham Forest. And beat them unfailingly to go back to the top of the League table on Sunday.
