Manchester United Target, Cody Gakpo has agreed a six year deal with Liverpool

Liverpool have snagged PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gakpo from Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag, United’s manager, had made Gakpo his top priority for the January transfer window.

In the summer, the club came close to signing the 23-year-old.

With Cristiano Ronaldo gone and Jadon Sancho not yet ready to return to the first team, Ten Hag is desperate to add more firepower to a squad that is currently reliant on Anthony Martial’s questionable fitness record.



However, with Luis Diaz out for three months due to a setback in his recovery from a knee injury, Liverpool are similarly short of attacking options, and Jurgen Klopp is eager to address that issue decisively.

Liverpool moved swiftly 12 months ago to beat Tottenham to the signing of Diaz and, according to The Times, are set to pull of something of a repeat and snare Gakpo from one of their main rivals.

Liverpool will pay £37million up front, rising to £50m with add-ons. and the player is set to fly to England in the next 48 hours to complete the formalities of his move.

‘PSV and Liverpool have reached an agreement on the proposed transfer of Cody Gakpo,’ read a statement on the Eredivisie club’s official website. ‘The 23-year-old attacker will leave for England imminently where he will be subjected to the necessary formalities ahead of the completion of the transfer.’
