Is Gakpo coming to the Premier League?

PSV Eindhoven director of football Marcel Brands has given Chelsea target Cody Gakpo the green light to leave in January.

PSV reportedly value Gakpo at £40m, a fee that hasn’t changed since the summer despite his electric start to the current campaign.

He’s registered 13 goals and 17 assists in in all competitions for PSV this season and is reportedly a player that Graham Potter would love to add to his squad

Now, the Blues have been given the green light to try and get a deal done after Brands admitted that the player can leave in January – should the right offer be made.

‘You have to be realistic. If you talk about Cody Gakpo and the price tag attached to him, there may be 10 to 12 clubs in Europe that can afford him,’ Brands told PSV supporters’ club talk show Eeuwig Trouw.

‘Amounts have not been discussed, but if the right club comes that Cody would like to go.

“Those agreements were already made before I came. It must be a record transfer for PSV anyway. Then you know in which direction it should go.’

In the media it seems like all the clubs are lining up, but the reality is that we don’t know anything about interest or anything yet.

‘It’s quiet. I’ve spoken to Cody, he’s going on vacation for 10 days. If something is at play, it is perhaps known to Cody or his management, but not to us yet.’

Coming from the Dutch League to the Premier League is a massive step up and it would be a big risk by Chelsea to spend so much money.

But the goals and assists dont lie, if the Blues can get the best out of the lad he would be a brilliant addition to the squad
