Romano’s Provides New Update On 38M Rated Dutch Ace’s Future Following Arsenal Links

Arsenal are not likely to make a move for PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Reports in recent days have suggested that the Gunners had revived their interest in the Dutch international but Romano claims no club is actively pursuing the player:

“At the moment, despite some speculation involving Arsenal, the situation is quiet around Cody Gakpo. He has always been on the list for Leeds United, but not in the first position, just after Luis Sinisterra, who was a priority of the club. PSV Eindhoven are hoping to keep him and his price tag has always been around €40-45m. He may be a name to monitor in the coming weeks as a big opportunity for many clubs, but PSV manager Ruud van Nistelrooy hopes to keep him at the club.”


Mikel Arteta’s side are in the market for a winger after losing out to Barcelona for Raphinha but, up until now, it hasn’t become known who the club’s main alternative to the Brazilian is.

The links to Gakpo did look credible as The Athletic reporter David Ornstein confirmed that Arsenal were keeping tabs on the 23-year-old all the way back in March. However, as Romano suggests, things have gone quiet since then.

There have been some rumours going around about Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sane but, for time being, it doesn’t look as if the Gunners have identified the winger they want to sign.
