21-goal star interested in move – will he be good Arsenal signing?
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
