MANCHESTER UNITED’S hunt for more firepower has switched to Arsenal and Liverpool target Cody Gakpo, reports claim.
PSV’s Holland winger Gakpo is said to have replaced Ajax wideman Antony and RB Leipzig new boy Benjamin Sesko high on Erik ten Hag‘s wishlist.
PSV’s Holland winger Cody Gakpo reportedly interests Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as being linked to Bayern Munich and Barcelona
And United‘s interest in Bologna frontman Marko Arnautovic, 33, is also thought to have ended, partly due to a backlash from fans.
Instead £35million-rated Gakpo has inched his way up Old Trafford boss ten Hag’s options, according to ESPN.
But Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also keen on the 23-year-old.
And the Mail suggest Arsenal held talks with Gakpo in April.
Gunners’ chief Mikel Arteta still wants a winger, having lost out to Barcelona for Leeds hero Raphinha.
Stats wise, Gakpo takes some beating for a wideman – albeit ‘only’ in the Dutch top-flight.
He notched 21 goals and 15 assists from 47 games last term as Ruud van Nistelrooy’s PSV lost out to Ajax in a two-horse title race.
But United legend Van Nistelrooy hopes to keep main man Gakpo.
PSV went into Tuesday night’s clash at home to Monaco still hoping to qualify for the Champions League group stages.
Gakpo featured in last week’s 1-1 first leg draw.
And the winners go through to a play-off to earn a group spot.
