Liverpool have reached an agreement to sign 2022 World Cup Dutch star Cody Gakpo for a fee between £35m and £45m from PSV Eindhoven. In a statement issued on Monday, the Dutch club:
PSV and LFC have reached an agreement on the proposed transfer of Cody Gakpo.
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.
Another English Premier Club, Manchester United were interested in Gakpo in the summer, when they instead signed Antony from Ajax, according to SkySports.
Southampton had an offer rejected for Gakpo in the summer, while Leeds were also keen on the 23-year-old.
Gakpo scored three goals in five appearances at the 2022 World Cup finals before the Netherlands were knocked out at the quarter-final stage on penalties to Argentina.
The transfer window opens on Sunday 1 January for clubs in England and Scotland and if all the necessary paperwork is completed then Gakpo could be in line for a Liverpool debut on 2 January at Brentford.
