Erik ten Hag wants Manchester United to match Arsenal’s interest in Cody Gakpo

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has now added PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo to his shopping list and will fight interest from Arsenal and Leeds United. This is acc The mirrorwho reports that the Red Devils boss has postponed his plans from Ajax ace Antony.

Mikel Arteta and Jesse Marsch have already shared their admiration for the Dutchman with the Boeren bosses this summer. But neither team has reached an agreement with the Philips Stadion team as PSV will not allow the sale of Gakpo before their Champions League fate is decided.

PSV drew the first leg of their third-round qualifier against AS Monaco from Ligue 1 this week. They will now host the Principality team in Eindhoven next Thursday in a bid to secure a place in the play-offs. The final games for a place in the group phase will take place on 16./17. and 23./24. held in August.

Arsenal and Leeds are also aware that PSV will ask £40m to sell Gakpo as the 23-year-old is very highly valued in the Netherlands. But the price is half what Ajax asked Manchester United for Brazil star Antony after they tipped him an £80million price tag.

Ten Hag has been stalking Antony as he is determined to sign another striker amid the uncertainty surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo. But Ajax’s demands have seen the Manchester United boss shift his interest to rivals Arsenal and Leeds for Gakpo’s transfer from PSV.

Erik ten Hag has a potential advantage over Mikel Arteta and Jesse Marsch

Gakpo has attracted interest from Arsenal, Leeds and now Manchester United through Ten Hag after shining for PSV last season. The 23-year-old right and left winger has recorded 21 goals and 15 assists in 46 appearances in all competitions and has often captained the team.

The Mirror also notes that Gakpo has drawn comparisons to Thierry Henry with his efforts at Philips Stadium. The Dutch ace with seven caps has also previously stated that the big Gunners is one of his heroes. But Ten Hag could have the advantage over Arteta and Marsch.

That’s because football agency group SEG represents both Ten Hag and Gakpo – a product of PSV, former Dutch striker Pierre van Hooijdonk thinks he ‘has everything’. So if a race for a strong winger gets heated up at the end of August, the Red Devils can now take the lead.
