Manchester United is set to bid 35 million pounds for Arsenal transfer target Cody Gakpo, according to a report from England.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian descent has been in impressive form last season when he scored 21 goals in 47 games for PSV Eindhoven as he was named Player of the Year in Eredivisie.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is currently in the transfer market to strengthen his attacking options after the departure of Edinson Cavani and the ongoing unavailability of Mason Greenwood.

And with Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford still in doubt, Anthony Martial is currently injured.

According to Sky Sports claimed that Manchester United is planning to dethrone Arsenal by preparing to make a £35m for PSV Eindhoven winger Gakpo in coming days.

The Red Devils have also been linked with Red Bull Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko, who is on the cusp of signing a pre-contract agreement with RB Leipzig, and Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic, who once played for West Ham in the Premier League in the past but they have dropped interest in after a backlash from the fanbase

Manchester United have three weeks left in the summer transfer window and the 20th Premier League champion coach Ten Hag has signed three players of Christian Eriksen in the middle of the pack plus defensive pair of Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia with trio with Eredivisie pedigree.

Gakpo has helped PSV crept into the Champions League playoff phase with an extra-time victory over Monaco as started the encounter despite speculation about Arsenal and Manchester United swirling around.

PSV will play Rangers in the Champions League play-off to decide whether they make the group stage or not.

Gakpo, currently managed by former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has featured for PSV 138 times since making his senior debut as an injury-time substitute in a 3–1 victory over Feyenoord on 25 February 2018 and scored 45 goals.
