PSG will reportedly face off with Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to sign in-form Dutch forward Cody Gakpo.
According to a report via Jeunes Footeux, Cody Gakpo is on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain. But PSG will compete with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United for the services of the 23-year-old Dutch international.
Gakpo has been exceptional for PSV Eindhoven over the past year, and he was linked with a move to the Premier League at the start of the season. However, PSV kept hold of the player, and he has been in exceptional form this season as well.
The Dutchman had 13 goals and 17 assists across all competitions before heading to the 2022 FIFA World Cup. And the in-form forward has made an immediate impact for the Netherlands in Qatar as well.
The 23-year-old attacker has three goals to his name at the World Cup and has helped the Oranje reach the quarter-finals of the competition. So it is no surprise that Gakpo;s performances have attracted the attention of the top European clubs. And PSG, Arsenal, and Manchester United are some of his prospective suitors.
PSV Endhoven will probably want to hold on to him until the end of the season. But they might be powerless to stop him from leaving if there is a lucrative offer on the table. And recent reports have claimed that he already has an agreement in place with Manchester United.
Apparently, PSG director Luis Campos is a fan of the player and wants to sign him for the French outfit. And amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Kylian Mbappe, Gakpo is a viable target for PSG.
Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester United are keen on signing the talented attacker as well, and it will be interesting to see who ends up securing his services. All three clubs would represent an excellent move for the young attacker, and any potential transfer would be a major step up in his career.
Gakpo needs to join a club where he will play regular first-team football, and PSG will have to provide him with assurances before signing him. The French outfit already have three world-class players in Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi. The Dutch international might struggle for regular game time unless one of them decides to leave in the summer.
