Corresponding ADVERTISEMENTLeeds United are currently in talks with Cody Gakpo over a move to Elland Road.

It’s probably no coincidence that white interest in Gakpo has increased at the same time as Chelsea imprison on Raphinha.

That’s certainly interesting, Gakpo has been linked with Leeds for a few days but he wasn’t actually seen as a priority target – as Phil Hay said on his podcast last week.

However, with Raphinha seemingly on the way, Leeds need a new winger through the door and Gakpo could certainly act as a brilliant replacement for the Brazilian.

Gakpo has been a real top player this season in the Netherlands. He scored 19 goals and assisted another 14, while his domestic exploits earned him the Eredivisie Player of the Year award.

The winger beat some tough opponents for the accolade, including Arsenal target Lisandro Martinez and new Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastien Haller.

Gakpo’s PSV didn’t win the league but he earned this accolade as he recorded 12 goals and 13 assists in just 22 domestic league starts.

Of course, good performances in the Netherlands don’t necessarily equate to success in the Premier League.

For every Luis Suarez and Jan Vertonghen, who won the Eredivisie Player of the Year award, there’s a Karim El Ahmadi and a Davy Klaasen – all in all, talent from the Dutch league is something of a fluke.

However, at 6ft 2, Gakpo should be more than ready for the physical rigors of the Premier League, while he’s certainly good enough on the ball. After all, he has previously been said to be a player who ‘has everything’ so it shouldn’t be too difficult for him to adjust to life in England.

If Leeds land Gakpo he will surely be one to watch next season.
