There is new speculation about who the new winger Liverpool wants to bring in this summer. The Reds are reportedly targeting the figure of Cody Gakpo to strengthen their attack line.
The last five years the figure of Sadio Mane has played a big role at Liverpool. The Senegal national team winger has become one of the main pillars of the Reds’ attack line.
In the last year there have been rumors that Mane wants to leave Liverpool. He feels he has played enough for the Reds and wants to find a new challenge.
Reported by The Athletic , Liverpool are currently looking for a replacement for Mane. One option they are exploring is PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo.
Young and Dangerous
The report claims that Liverpool are absolutely in love with Gakpo. They think the winger will be a good replacement for Mane.
This is because this season he has impressed at PSV. He managed to score 16 goals and 15 assists for the Dutch giants.
Not to mention he is still 22 years old. So he could be a big investment for Liverpool in the future.
It will be difficult
But the report claims that Liverpool will find it difficult to sign Gakpo. Because the winger has just signed a new contract at PSV.
He signed the contract in early 2022. He is bound as a PSV player until 2026.
So Liverpool must be ready to spend a lot of money to secure the services of these young players.
Liverpool are reportedly interested in Gakpo because he can play in several positions.
The left winger is his main position. But he can also play on the right and also as a false nine like Sadio Mane, so Jurgen Klopp really wants the winger.
