Is Gakpo coming to the Premier League?

PSV ace Cody Gakpo has revealed he’s open to a transfer if he’s guaranteed regular football -but would he be a good signing for Arsenal?

It is no secret in the media Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah could be heading out of Arsenal in the transfer after failing to impress like many had hoped and scored the goals that Mikel Arteta needed.

And that has led to many reports in the media that Arsenal are very much interested in a deal for Gakpo, who is fast becoming one of the most sought after young players in Europe right now

The winger, who mainly operates on the left, has hit 21 goals in all competitions for the Eindhoven club this season, and has also provided 16 assists and his performances is attracting all sorts of interest

Bayern Munich are also said to be keen on the Dutch star – who has recently broken into the national team – but Gakpo doesn’t want the risk of being sat on the bench of a foreign club ahead of November’s World Cup

Gakpo declared he’s yet to make a decision on his future this summer – but has now admitted that anything can happen in the coming transfer window – Gakpo told De Telegraaf: “Anything can happen this summer. I will now calmly compare all the options and see what is best for me. Staying another year is also an option.

“It would be a shame if I went somewhere where I wouldn’t get a [game] at all and I could miss the World Cup. I’ll keep that in mind.”

Look, if Arsenal do decide to make a move and make a serious offer to the Dutch giants, it would be very hard for Gakpo to turn down such a move to a club that is one of the biggest in Europe.

He is a real talent and a real source of goals – so he would definitely bring something to this Arsenal side – who have been lacking goals in recent weeks

But they will need to make sure that they get him for the right amount of money guys

    If Gakpo sign for Arsenal i’m sure he will be grantiued of first team player and it will be good for him because he will have game time and that will help him to be selection for the world cup selection proper he is sure of playing in Europe and that will make him show case his talent I love his type of player because he understand that most primary thing in football is playing in the league then champion league and Europa league follows There many good players who will play in the champion league there country will over look and who did not play in Europe that will make world cup squad football is how you are talented not where you are playing many players play in the champion league but they have not win a single trophy in there club that means they are just making the numbers of club that played champion league now let ask he who played champion league and lost out and he played Europa and won the crown who is worthy.

    Arsenal have 2 young, left sided wide players in the team already. Emil Smith-Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli both play on the left and are both young and rapidly improving.

    It is also worth noting that a lot of players who light up the Eredivisie with goals (Memphis Depay, former Arsenal youth player Donyell Malen, Jozy Altidore, Vincent Janssen, Hirving Lozano) find goals a lot harder to come by in other leagues.

    That does not mean Gakpo would not be a good signing or score for Arsenal, but it should temper expectations back down to more realistic results to avoid Nicholas Pepe syndrome. Pepe went from scoring 22 goals and notching 11 assists for Lille to scoring 10 goals and notching 1 assist for Arsenal. This was actually the best season for any Arsenal wing player, but Pepe was labeled a flop because of his 72 million price tag and his gaudy goal and assist tallies. Forwards almost always score less in the Premier League than in any other league, so expecting Gakpo to replicate is 12 goals and 13 assists in Arsenal Red would be unrealistic.

    Does it make sense to sign him when Smith Rowe scored 10 and assisted 2 in the league as a part-time player?
