Liverpool have beaten Manchester United in the race to sign winger Cody Gakpo after agreeing a deal with PSV, the Dutch side announced on Monday.

The Dutch club said in a statement: “PSV and Liverpool FC have reached an agreement on the proposed transfer of Cody Gakpo. The 23-year-old striker will soon leave for England where he will undergo the necessary formalities before the completion of the transfer.
Gakpo, 23, became a star at the World Cup in Qatar when he scored three goals for the Netherlands before their quarter-final elimination to eventual champions Argentina.
With Colombia international Luis Diaz facing a long spell on the sidelines after aggravating a knee injury during a mid-season training break in Dubai, Liverpool have accelerated their attempts to strengthen their forward line by moving for Gakpo.
The left forward was a top target for Leeds and Southampton during the summer, and United manager Erik ten Hag persuaded the Old Trafford club to consider a move for the player late in the summer window.
United were considering a new move for Gakpo in January following the club’s decision to cancel Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract in November.
But after beating United to the signing of Darwin Nunez in June, Liverpool are now ready to do the same by sealing a transfer for Gakpo when the winter transfer window opens on Sunday January 1.
