Cody Gakpo Celebrates Opening Goal for the Netherlands

Liverpool have successfully poached Cody Gakpo from Manchester United in a deal worth £50M -- their first signing for the January transfer window.

Gakpo 23, was one of the World Cup revelation despite the Netherlands unable to progress past the Round of 16 against eventual winner Argentina.

Nevertheless, Gakpo scored 3 goals in the opening group stage.

Aside his adventures at the World Cup, he was awarded the Dutch player of the year, last season at PSV.

His goals met the criteria of Jurgen Klopp's striker and he is more clinical than Uruguayan Darwin Nunez.

He signed a long-term contract with an initial £30M with add-ons to take the deal to £50M.

United had instigated talks but were still to finalise a financial offer and Liverpool have taken advantage.

Gakpo had offers from Leeds and Southampton last summer but chose to stay at PSV after the Dutch club rejected offers.

The 23-year old had chosen to wait for offers from clubs contending in the Champions League and despite the pull of United's Erik Ten Hag, Liverpool fit the bill.
