The youngest member of The 4th Official and an ardent Premier League fan who is basically obsessed with scouting young talents and is consumed by the idea of finding the perfect number 10.

Recent reports from The Sun state that Manchester United are keen on signing PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo in the ongoing transfer window as Erik Ten Hag looks set to add to his attacking options.

The report further claims that Manchester United have already agreed upon personal terms with the Eredivisie star; however, PSV will sell only if their asking price of £42 million is met. The English club’s latest offer is in the region of £34 million – somewhat short of the Dutch outfit’s evaluation of the 23-year-old attacker.

‘The stories are getting more and more persistent that Gakpo is indeed on his way to Manchester United. Despite the fact that things are not going well with coach Erik ten Hag’s team, and that it does not seem the best destination for the star player of PSV by many, according to De Mos. “The right time has come. If you qualify for the Champions League on Wednesday and sell Gakpo, you will have made 100 million euros in one day. You can’t let that go. You can’t blame Gakpo either, you can earn five times more and you play at the biggest club in the world.”’ – The translated version of a report from Dutch media outlet Eindhovens Dagblad.

An Exciting Option For Ten Hag?

Having come through the ranks at PSV Eindhoven itself, Cody Gakpo made his debut for the senior team as an injury-time substitute in a 3-1 victory over Feyenoord on 25 February 2018. His performances improved steadily with each game; however, he broke into the scene in the 2019-20 season with fourteen goal contributions in 25 appearances. The 7-times Netherlands international scored twelve goals and bagged as many assists in the 2021/22 season, thereby helping his team finish second in the league table.

Although Gakpo is primarily a left-winger, he can slot in as a striker or as a right-winger in the hour of need.

Manchester United are in dire need of reinforcements at the moment, especially in attack – and Gakpo fits the bill perfectly. Aged 23, he has plenty of time on his side. Hence, the board should go all out for his signature in the coming days.
