Cody Gakpo has strongly hinted that he could stay at PSV Eindhoven for another season, although he also admits that ‘anything can happen this summer’ amid speculation Arsenal want to bring him to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old has enjoyed his best season to date with the Dutch club, scoring 21 goals in all competitions, with 12 of those coming in the Eredivisie.
He only signed a new contract in January, which runs until 2026, but his performances have seen him linked with a big move to England.
Arsenal are believed to be interested in the Netherlands intenational, who mainly operates from the left wing, but can play across the front three.
He is aware of the speculation over his future and will consider his options, although he seems in no rush to leave PSV and would be happy to stay with the club to maintain stability ahead of the World Cup this winter.
‘Anything can happen this summer,’ Gakpo told De Telegraaf. ‘I will now calmly compare all the options and see what is best for me. Staying another year is also an option.
‘It would be a shame if I went somewhere where I wouldn’t get a game at all and I could miss the World Cup. I’ll keep that in mind.
‘I have been with PSV since I was six. I have been coming here almost every day for seventeen years. PSV is almost my second home. I also consider my love for the club in the decision I ultimately make.’
Gakpo had fueled the Arsenal speculation earlier this year by saying the Gunners are a team he ‘likes a lot’.
‘The Premier League is a big league,’ he told The Sun. ‘Virgil van Dijk plays there with Liverpool so I like to watch them.
‘Everybody wants to play one time in the Prem. I don’t favour one team but I like Arsenal a lot.
‘I looked up to (Thierry) Henry when I was younger because he was a tall guy who played on the wing.’
