The whole world is talking about Erling Haaland’s statistics today, but in European football there is a player who has even better statistics than the Norwegian striker this season.
PSV Eindhoven striker Cody Gakpo has been playing some incredible football this season and that will land him a huge career move. The 23-year-old forward from Togo, who plays for the Netherlands, has scored 13 goals and added 11 assists and it’s only mid-October.
His stats put him at the top of the most effective footballers in Europe at the moment, with Erling Haaland, Neymar and Robert Lewandowski right behind him. Therefore, it is not surprising that many European giants are interested in his services.
According to British media, Manchester United has already contacted his legend, Ruud van Nistelrooy, who “shaped” Gakpo at PSV.
It was with Van Nistelrooy’s arrival at PSV that Gakpo experienced a revival and became the most effective striker in Europe.
Even during the summer, Gakpo was close to moving to Old Trafford. However, in the end, everything failed.
“I was close to leaving the club. I have talked to Ten Hag several times about the move to United. In the end, the job was not done, which was bad for me too, because United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, but also for PSV because the transfer of players to United is a great thing for the club as well.” Gakpo had told the Times.
In terms of participation in goals (combined goals and assists), Gakpo is first in Europe with 24, while Haaland currently has 23.

There is no doubt that the Dutch footballer will make a big transfer if he continues with his statistics as before.
