Arsenal are the ‘most serious contender’ for Cody Gakpo ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City, according to Dutch outlet ED.The Gunners, the Reds and the Citizens have been linked with the 22-year-old forward in recent weeks.The Daily Mail recently reported that Arsenal have held talks over Gakpo with a view to a summer move.Photo by NESImages/vi/DeFodi Images via Getty ImagesMeanwhile, Voetbal International reported in January that the Reds and Man City had also spoken to Gakpo.7 Genuinely Fan-Owned Football ClubsED has now claimed that PSV are trying to do all they can to keep hold the Netherlands international for another year.Gakpo reportedly signed a new contract in January, tying him to the Dutch giants until 2026.But this hasn’t stopped big-name suitors, such as Arsenal, Liverpool and City, from circling.ED claims PSV want to go further if necessary, and a new, better and longer contract until 2027 is ‘conceivable’.The article finishes by claiming Arsenal, Liverpool and City are also up against Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.While these clubs ‘have all shown interest to a greater or lesser extent’, Arsenal are apparently ‘the most serious contender’.“He is going to be an important player”Gakpo is one of the most highly rated and sought-after attacking talents in world football.He has registered an impressive 18 goals and 15 assists from 42 PSV appearances in all competitions this term.Gakpo also has four Netherlands caps and one Oranje goal to his name.Former Netherlands midfielder Theo Janssen recently praised the young forward.He told Dutch publication NOS: “That boy has everything.“Fine feeling for the ball, a good through ball, dribbles and is strong between the lines.“I really enjoy him. He is going to be an important player for the Oranje squad. “He is ready to be in the base of the Oranje squad. I would definitely draft him.“There are other options, but they are not as effective as him.”If Gabriel Martinelli does end up turning into a centre-forward, then Arsenal will need to bring in a new left-winger.Gakpo primarily plays on the left wing, but can also feature on the right flank and at centre-forward.He’d be a great shout for an Arsenal side, even if a new No. 9 is likely to be the main priority this summer.Arsenal could end up without a senior centre-forward in their ranks, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both out of contract.
