Liverpool are closing in on the signing of PSV Eindhoven attacker Cody Gakpo.
Talks are believed to be at an advanced stage and Anfield officials are hopeful of concluding a deal for the 23-year-old Netherlands international.
Manchester United had been favourites to land the left-sided winger following suggestions that he favoured a move to Old Trafford, but that hasn’t put Liverpool off from trying to hijack their efforts.
It is believed that Liverpool would need to agree a package with PSV that could be close to £50million to make a deal happen.
UPDATE: A deal has now been reached between both clubs and the player will now undergo a medical with Liverpool
Meanwhile, KOPTALK understands that the Reds have also held talks with a Premier League club today about potential January business. It is not known if this would be instead of Gakpo if that was to go pear-shaped or if it would be additional business. We are hoping we may learn more about that tomorrow. Members should go here for more on that from earlier today.
