Arsenal is leading the race to sign PSV Eindhoven midfielder Cody Gakpo ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City, according to reports.
Gakpo, a 22-year-old attacking midfielder, has been in fantastic form for the Dutch giants this season, with 16 goals and 15 assists in all competitions. According to Voetbal International, the Gunners are best placed to sign him.
As we approach the summer transfer window, Liverpool, Pep Guardiola, and Bayern Munich are all interested in signing Dutch winger Gakpo, who Total Football Analysis has labeled a “generational” potential.
Mikel Arteta wants to add fresh attackers this summer, and it appears that Arsenal is the frontrunner in the race to sign Gakpo. Arsenal has a plethora of options on the left-wing, where the 22-year-old PSV star has excelled this season.
Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli are two of Arsenal’s most promising young forwards, and the addition of Gakpo could signal a shift in roles for one of the players.
Given that Gakpo could be the Gunners’ first signing this summer, Arteta’s decision to bring in the Dutch talent will be an interesting one.
A System Change at Arsenal Under Arteta Could Be Indicated by the Signing of Gakpo
Arsenal will pay a substantial sum to sign Gakpo this summer, with sums ranging from £30 million to £42 million. And while the youngster’s profile fits what the Gunners are searching for, this signing could point to a shift in the system.
