Gakpo favours move to Premier League amid links with Arsenal

Arsenal transfer target Cody Gakpo has revealed in the past he would like to secure a move to a Premier League side in the future.

Speaking to TheSun in April, via Mirror, Gakpo said: “The Premier League is a big league. Virgil van Dijk plays there with Liverpool so I like to watch them.

“We are not the same kind of league but I think we try to look at the Prem and learn about it. Everybody wants to play one time in the Prem.

“I don’t favour one team but I like Arsenal a lot,” he explained, thanks to the presence of his boyhood idol, Thierry Henry. “I looked up to Henry when I was younger because he was a tall guy who played on the wing

One position that Arteta would clearly still like to upgrade would be in the wide attacking areas, having missed out on the signing of Raphinha. The Gunners lodged multiplied bids for the Brazilian winger, only to see him join Barcelona.

That failed pursuit did show Arteta’s willingness to bring in a new player, with the future of record signing Nicolas Pepe up in the air. Cody Gakpo is another player believed to be on the recruitment team’s radar after a breakthrough season at PSV.

'That is what they didn't do' - Erik explains what his boys failed to do at Brentford loss

Talking his disappointment at Manchester United’s 4-0 misfortune to Brentford this Saturday, Erik ten Hag said in his post-match interview: “Difficult for me and a surprise. The team has to take the responsibility and I feel sorry for the fans, we let them down.

“I asked them [the players] to play with belief and take responsibility, that is what they didn’t do.

“Only when we stick together we will overcome it — don’t get me wrong, the manager is the main responsibility and I take that but I have to give them belief and they have to get it by themselves.

“Mistakes are part of football, you have to keep going but you have [to] especially act — It [three subs at half-time] was about bringing fresh ones. I could have changed all eight others as well.”

Ten Hag has plainly not kept down in his evaluation and United just have themselves to fault for this wreck.

The Red Devils are currently winless in their first two Premier League games, having conceded six goals as of now.

As per RMC Sport writer Sacha Tavolieri, a level two source, Manchester United have agreed with Veronique Rabiot based on personal conditions for her son Adrien.

United have previously settled on an exchange with Juventus and were just trusting that Rabiot will green-light the arrangement.

The 27-year-old was reportedly demanding a pay rise, a regular place in the starting XI and a signing-on bonus to move to Old Trafford. It’s unclear if United have agreed to all those demands.

Director of Football John Murtough flew to Italy on Friday to meet with Veronique and Adrien. It looks like the meeting was successful after all.

Wesley Fofana has been spotted heading toward Leicester City fans after the 4-2 defeat to Arsenal.

He was the first player to do as such while others were talking and swapping shirts. Solely after that, the rest of the team joined him.

It is accepted that the player might have said his farewell to Leicester supporters. The middle back is overall intensely connected with Chelsea.

What’s more, Todd Boehly apparently was at the Emirates during the game.

The Blues could land the 21-year-old in the coming weeks.
