Liverpool set to rival Manchester United for the signing of PSV’s Cody Gakpo – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United will face stiff competition from bitter rivals Liverpool for the signing of PSV Eindhoven striker Cody Gakpo.

United have been widely tipped as Gakpo’s next destination when he inevitably leaves the Eredivisie giants.

Erik ten Hag was interested in the player during the summer, but finally decided on a meeting with Antony when a decision had to be made between the two players.

However, the Dutch boss is said to have retained an interest in Gakpo, whom he sees as a suitable component in his United rebuild.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool have entered the race for the prolific goalscorer and see him as the missing piece to relaunch their bid to challenge Manchester City for top honours.

The Mirror reports: “Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing PSV winger Cody Gakpo, with the Dutch giants keen to sell him to the Reds.”

“Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders has identified Gakpo as a possible signing. Lijnders has a lot to say about the club’s transfer policy and he explored Luis Díaz”.

“According to reports, Gakpo is seen as someone who can fill the void for Mane.”

According to The Mirror, Liverpool could be looking to sign Gakpo as early as January.

It is believed that signing the Dutch international at the turn of the year would propel them back into form at the end of the season.

Gakpo has been in excellent form for PSV this season. The striker has contributed 13 goals and 17 assists to his team in 23 games with Ruud van Nistelrooy’s side.

The player is valued at around £40m and has just over three years on his contract.

It would be devastating if Liverpool beat United at Gakpo’s services. The club must act quickly to prevent this from happening.
