The situation 

Real Madrid follows in the footsteps of Cody Gakpo, PSV Eindhoven’s Dutch striker . According to The Athletic , the white club is one of the teams that are following the evolution of the young PSV footballer , who made his international debut with Oranje just over a year ago, and sees him as an emerging talent who can play in multiple attack positions. In any case, it would be an option for the future, since Gakpo, despite his versatility, works mainly on the left wing of the attack, on that flank Vinicius is now indisputable and it is expected to be so for a long time. Madrid’s movements may be aimed at keeping a communication channel open in case at any time the footballer fits into Madrid’s plans. 

The details

Gakpo has a good poster in the Premier League . In fact, PSV had hoped to transfer the promising Dutch attacker last summer, but in the end it did not happen, as Manchester United finally opted for the signing Antony. Another suitor was Leeds, but the bad start to the season for the team from the north of England makes the player question whether it is the ideal destination to land on now. Arsenal, according to information from that medium, would also be following in his footsteps . With a contract in force until 2026,  Gakpo has already been valued by PSV: whoever wants it must pay at least 50 million euros . The footballer has a market value of 30 million euros, according to Olocip’s appraisal, which places him as the most decisive player this season in the Eredivisie, with a value generated for his team of 7.16. Gakpo is, with nine goals in nine days, the top scorer in the Dutch league and has three other goals in the Europa League . He made his international debut in June 2021 and has already made nine appearances and scored three goals for the Netherlands.
