Cody Gakpo’s move to Arsenal has been touted for some time, but recent reports suggest he is keen to join Manchester United.
Anyway, the PSV Eindhoven winger has been told he’s not ready for a Premier League transfer.
However, Arsenal and Manchester United were only linked with the 23-year-old on Sunday ESPN added on Tuesday that the attacker is interested in playing regularly at Old Trafford.
The problem is that he might not be good enough for either.
That is certainly an author’s view for De telegraphwho gave a scathing assessment of his performance last night.
The Eredivisie club snuck into the Champions League play-off stage with an overtime win over Monaco.
Gakpo started the competition despite Arsenal and Manchester United speculation.
The Dutch outlet wrote of the player: “It was noticeable that even a strong defending champion like Cody Gakpo wasn’t in his normal way. Gakpo couldn’t show for a moment in this match that he’s ready for a move to a top competition like the Premier League.”
With 21 goals in left midfield last season, Gakpo really deserved the £40m prize he now has [The Daily Mail].
Struggling in a Champions League qualifier, however, is relatively menacing in terms of his ability to keep up – and shine – in a competition as tough as the Premier League.
There’s no doubt he’s a huge talent who will only get better but perhaps another season in the Eredivisie is needed before a club starts paying big bucks on him.
