Cody Gakpo Is An Important Signing For Liverpool

A surprise transfer deal has seen Cody Gakpo join Liverpool. He is a 23-year-old centre forward with a plethora of qualities – including a goal scoring record – that should be a real boost to the team. This is the kind of move that should put an end to speculation about turbulence at Anfield.

Who Is Cody Gakpo? – PSV Eindhoven’s Uprising Talent

The Dutch forward made his debut for PSV Eindhoven in November last year. His ability to play across the front line and his head for goals meant he quickly became a fan favourite. Having started his career at FC Twente, he moved to PSV last season and has been a key part of the side’s success. In 14 Eredivisie games this season, he has scored nine times and assisted another 12 times.

Gakpo was a popular target with many clubs. Manchester United were thought to be in the market for his services. However, Liverpool came out on top, completing a five-and-a-half-year deal for the forward.

Liverpool transfer news and rumours

Liverpool’s target for the summer is midfielder Jude Bellingham, although the club may have to convince him to come to Anfield. They were also thought to be interested in signing Darwin Nunez in the summer. With the departure of Sadio Mane, the team will be looking to add another attacking player.

It was not too long ago that Liverpool were considering a move for Naby Keita. But a number of European giants showed interest. When Tottenham Hotspur advanced in negotiations, the club pushed the talks on to a higher gear. Eventually, the transfer came to an end.

However, Liverpool still need to sign a midfielder, and it’s likely that they will make a push to secure one before the end of the summer. Another potential addition is striker James Milner, who is out of contract in the summer.

While the arrival of Gakpo is a major boost for Liverpool, it could limit their options. They need to remain in the top four in order to secure a Champions League place. Despite that, they aren’t going to be able to afford any high-profile signings. And it will be even harder to find a replacement for Sadio Mane. Even if it doesn’t happen, the acquisition of Gakpo will provide fresh impetus for the second half of the season.

Jurgen Klopp is delighted to have secured a player of Gakpo’s calibre. At an official press conference on Thursday, he stated that he is “really happy” to be working with the 23-year-old.

Virgil van Dijk, the Netherlands captain, also played a role in the deal. Before he joined Liverpool, he spoke with Gakpo about the move. During their meeting, it was revealed that the 23-year-old was excited to join the club. Moreover, van Dijk’s experience with Gakpo in the international arena helped seal the deal.

If everything goes to plan, the incoming winger will make his Liverpool debut in January. He’s likely to be used on the left of a three-man attack. Having the option to play as a winger will be invaluable in the coming months.
