Cody Gakpo holds ‘huge potential’- claimed by Pundit


Liverpool legend Steve Nicol claimed that New Signing Cody Gakpo holds ” loads of potential” and saved Reds in January.

Merseyside Club seriously needs a Midfielder and fans were also expecting it. But they moved through the entire transfer window without signing one.

Klopp needs serious reinforcement in midfield but that doesn’t look in their scheme of plans.

Steve Nicol termed the transfer window as a whole, grading the Reds with a “C” for their efforts. It would have been far worse if not for Gakpo.

He told ESPN-

Gakpo’s a good signing”. “He’s a young player and there’s no question that there’s loads of potential there”.

“It’s not like [Jurgen Klopp] has signed another Arthur, shall we say. Now that was a complete shambles – so it’s not one of them”.

“This guy can play, this guy will absolutely help Liverpool in the future“.

Gakpo in Liverpool colors

Cody Gakpo hasn’t shown his A-game – still facing difficulties. Playing in his new position, Dutchman is struggling to make an impact in Red shirt.

With a new club, in a new country, with a new style of play but also he’s come into a struggling Liverpool side.

Liverpool are in horrendous form and even Mohamed Salah is failing to make an impact this season.

Gakpo isn’t playing his natural position-making his life is more difficult. Klopp insisting to play him as a striker doesn’t make sense. The 23-year-old gathered huge praise while playing for PSV and the Dutch National side where he was deployed as a Left Winger.

Gakpo is a prolific goal scorer and will show his true colors with time. Klopp needs to be very patient with his development.
