Liverpool Transfer News: Who is Cody Gakpo?
According to sources, Liverpool is eyeing PSV’s Cody Gakpo. The 22-year-old winger is currently one of the leading players in Eredivisie this season. He can be an ideal candidate for rejuvenating this Liverpool side.
Eredivisie has given Liverpool much of their talents. It is one of the team’s primary choices for recruiting new players. They have got players like Dirk Kuyt, Ryan Babel, and Luis Suárez from the Eredivisie.
Under Jürgen Klopp, this has certainly changed. Liverpool has made just one signing from the Dutch top flight in the form of Sepp van den Berg. However, Berg is more of signing for Liverpool’s academy.
As per reports, Liverpool is keeping a close eye on Cody Gakpo. They have spoken to the player about a possible transfer.
Gakpo: The perfect choice for Klopp?
Gakpo has played for PSV since the age of 17. He made his debut way back in the 2017/18 season. Hemade his national debut at the Euro 2020. He came as a substitute in the match against North Macedonia.
Gakpo has made 4 appearances for the Netherlands senior team. He has scored one goal and provided one assist. The 22-year-old has represented PSV in 28 matches this season and has scored 10 goals, providing 11 assists for the team. He even captained the side on several occasions, despite his young age.
Cody Gakpo towers at 1.89 meters, which is a very unusual height for a forward-line player. His long legs allow him to cover a great distance of the pitch, which is very helpful for Klopp’s Gegenpress. The young star prefers to play on the left and likes to cut the ball into his preferred right foot. He also likes to attempt a large number of shots.
A player of such caliber can help Klopp’s Gegenpress playing style. He can be a valuable asset for Liverpool in the near future. They need a winger like Suárez and Cody Gakpo is one of the best options available for the Reds.
