Dutch striker of Ghanaian descent Cody Gakpo, is on the radar of German giants Bayern Munich.
SportsworldGhana.com, understands Bayern are not the only club interested in the prolific striker as French Champions, Lille OSC, have already made an offer of between 15 and 20 million euros.
However, this is an offer that does not meet the wishes of the Eindhoven club management, which aims to keep the youth product for PSV for one more season.
After the end of last season, multiple reports in Germany have suggested that Bayern Munich are looking to improve options in the attack. A wide player is on the agenda for the German club after the departure of Douglas Costa after his loan spell came to an end.
The reports in Netherlands suggest that Die Roten is looking at Eredivisie to address this position.
According to Voetball International, Rekordmeister has initiated contact with the agents of PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo. This report does confirm that there has been no contact between clubs with PSV looking for a fee close to €30 million for the young winger.
French clubs such as Lyon and Marseille are also interested in 22-year-old attacker.
Cody Gakpo largely played as number ten or left winger for PSV Eindhoven during last season. The Dutch winger managed eight goals and four assists in 27 appearances across all competitions for PSV last season.
He was also part of the Dutch squad for Euro 2020, making one appearance from the bench. (Stats courtesy: Whoscored)
Gakpo will be initially used as a squad option for Die Roten if this transfer goes ahead. The youngster will have to compete with Leroy Sane, Kingsley Coman, and Serge Gnabry in wider positions.
Jamal Musiala and Thomas Muller can also operate in wide positions, but they are at their best in central positions.
