Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is overjoyed after seeing the Reds land Cody Gakpo from PSV.

Cody Gakpo has been signed by Liverpool from PSV for a cost that might reach £44 million, as announced on Wednesday. The Reds manager has now lauded the team’s most recent purchase and explained to fans what to anticipate from Gakpo.

“There is a lot to like about Cody. He is still only 23 years old but he already has a lot of experience. He was the captain of PSV, he was the Player of the Year in Holland last season and, as a lot of people have just seen, he also had a great World Cup with his national team,” he told the club’s official website.

“So, it is clear that he is already a really, really good player but his age also means he also has the potential to become even better. Offensively, he is very versatile and on top of this we know he is a smart footballer and also a smart person, so we are really excited to be able to work with him.”

Gakpo will boost Liverpool’s attack currently without Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino due to injury. The attacker has been in superb form this season, scoring nine goals and picking up 12 assists in just 14 league outings for PSV.

Klopp must now decide when to hand his new signing his Liverpool debut, although he may have to wait as Gakpo will be treated as a World Cup returnee and will need to integrate.
