Cody Gakpo deal about to be defined as Manchester United step up January plans – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United is about to reach an agreement with PSV Eindhoven for the transfer of Cody Gakpo.

The winger has been in sensational form this season, having scored 13 goals in 22 appearances.

Both a creator and goalscorer, Gakpo has also provided 16 assists this season.

The Red Devils had come close to signing the PSV star in the summer, however with the club’s spending having already reached record levels the deal failed to materialize.

But now, according to journalist Rudy Galetti (via Sports Witness), United are “close to closing” a deal with PSV for their talisman.

According to the report, United are shifting their focus towards the January transfer window in light of the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

Gakpo can increase his value with a strong showing in the tournament, which would make negotiating a deal now prudent.

The striker is among Erik ten Hag’s priority targets, even after a deal collapsed in the summer.

The United manager has repeatedly insisted his side need more attacking options, most recently following a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Needing a second goal to top the Europa League group, Ten Hag had to turn to centre-back Harry Maguire as his side chased the result.

United couldn’t even start that match with a pair of natural wingers, with Bruno Fernandes forced to play out of position on the right due to injuries to Jadon Sancho and Antony.

With such a limited pool of attackers to choose from, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Manchester United use the winter window to beef up their offense. United Matchday Magazine – Stay on top of all things red! Take a seat for the Aston Villa game and join the debate on United’s hottest topics!
