Leeds United still interested in signing Cody Gakpo

Leeds United are reportedly reigniting their interest in PSV Eindhoven attacker Cody Gakpo in the January transfer window.

The 23-year-old forward has emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United and Arsenal earlier this year.

However, reported interest from the Gunners did not materialise into anything serious as the North Londoners instead swooped for Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira to strengthen their attacking line.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils instead forked out £85m to secure a deal for Antony from Ajax, which allowed other clubs to enter the race for Gakpo on deadline day.

The Netherlands international was believed to have been courted by the Yorkshire giants in the final hours of the transfer window.

Ultimately, the Dutchman is still on the books at the Philips Stadion, but according to football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the Elland Road outfit will reignite their interest in the mid-season transfer window.

Gakpo possesses a contract until the end of the 2025-26 campaign, and has scored 49 goals and registered 39 assists in 145 matches for the club across all competitions.
