Arteta told January Arsenal signing ‘is better buy’ that Cody Gakpo


Liverpool legend Jose Enrique has told Arsenal the signing of Leandro Trossard is a better buy that Cody Gakpo.

After establishing himself as one of the best attackers in the Dutch League – there was alot of interest in Cody Gakpo, with Arsenal and Liverpool just two clubs that were interested in a potential deal.

However – Cody Gakpo sealed a headline move to Liverpool after a brilliant first half of the season in which he was impressing game after game for PSV in the Eredivisie; he managed 9 goals and 12 assists in 14 games before going on to score 3 goals in 5 World Cup games for the Netherlands

The Reds thought they were getting a real talent, but in the few games he’s played under Jurgen Klopp, he’s looked out of place, and struggled to adapt to the pace and quality of the Premier League.

Enrique has now questioned Klopp’s decision to sign Gakpo, claiming that he should have signed Leandro Trossard, who is immediately demonstrating why Arsenal signed him.

“You can call me whatever you want but I’m watching Arsenal and something that I say it before I even say it more now. That we sign Gakpo instead of Trossard for half of the price I don’t understand. Really like Trossard,” tweeted Jose Enrique.

There is a reason why Cody Gakpo has a massive reputation and that is because the lad has serious potential – he just needs time to find his feet.

Trossard has been in the Premier League for a few years – so knows how to handle the pressure – Arsenal made the better decision to sign a man that will make an instant impact.

It will remain to be seen who is the better buy – but both are class stars and both will bang in some goals for Arsenal and Liverpool.
