Liverpool confirm when Cody Gakpo could make debut


Liverpool have confirmed that Cody Gakpo has been formally registered as a new player following his move from PSV Eindhoven.

The Dutchman’s move to Anfield was confirmed late last month, with Liverpool paying an initial £37m to win the race for his signature ahead of Manchester United, who were expected to land Gakpo after chasing him in the summer.

Manager Jurgen Klopp initially said there was a chance Gakpo could feature in the weekend’s defeat to Brentford if the paperwork could be completed in time, which of course didn’t happen.

However, Liverpool have now confirmed that the move is official and final.

“Cody Gakpo is officially a Liverpool player after the formalities of his transfer from PSV Eindhoven were successfully completed on Tuesday,” the statement read.

“The 23-year-old is now formally registered with the Reds and can start work with his new club.

“The Netherlands international could now be in contention for Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.”

Gakpo, who took the number 18 shirt for Liverpool, could go straight into a Reds starting line-up already missing injuries to Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, with Klopp looking for a response after their shock 3-1 defeat to Brentford last time out.
