Cody Gakpo of PSV Eindhoven has reportedly attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe, including the English Premier League.

Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich are all attempting to sign the Netherlands international in the forthcoming summer transfer window; the struggle for his signature will heat up as the summer approaches.

The report reads:
As transfer insider Ekrem Konur reports, FC Bayern is still dealing with Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven.
Accordingly, Bayern are pushing for a transfer of the 22-year-old winger for the coming summer transfer. FCB was already associated with the shooting star last summer. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are also interested in the Dutchman.

Arsenal were also linked heavily with the 23-year-old in the January transfer window, with a deal not materializing before the end of the window. However, they might enter the fray again when the transfer window opens.

According to transfer journalist Ekrem Konur, PSV Eindhoven has set a price of £30 million for Cody Gakpo.

Cody Gakpo’s 2021/22 season by numbers:

Gakpo is in the form of his life. He not only has 30 G/A across all competitions, but also helped his side win the KNVB Cup. After falling behind early in the KNVB Cup final against Ajax, Gakpo facilitated a masterful comeback, scoring in the 50th minute, which eventually turned out to be the winning goal.

Matches Played: 34 (across Eredivisie, Europa League, and Conference League)

  • Goals: 17
  • Assists: 13
  • Pass Completion Rate: 72.6%
  • Dribbles per 90: 3.64
  • carries to the final third per 90: 3.03

Is Cody Gakpo interested in a PL move?

Ever since the start of his career, Cody Gakpo has remained a one-club player in the Netherlands ever since. Rising through the ranks of the youth academy, Gakpo broke into the senior team in 2018/19. In the same season, he made his UEFA Champions League debut as well. The player is looking for a new challenge in Europe.

In one of his recent interviews, the player expressed his interest in a Premier League move, not shying away from mentioning his liking of Arsenal. He also mentioned who his role model was while growing up.

Everybody wants to play one time in the Prem, I don’t favour one team but I like Arsenal a lot. I looked up to [Thierry] Henry when I was younger because he was a tall guy who played on the wing.

With a move collapsing in the winter, Cody Gakpo will probably push for a move this summer. With the World Cup coming up, deals might be delayed or pushed forward.
