Gakpo has been heavily linked with a move away from PSV in 2023, in the winter transfer window, on the back of an impressive showing for the Netherlands at the 2022 World Cup.
The 23-year-old was contracted at the Phillips Stadion until 2026 but Ruud van Nistelrooy’s side have now sanctioned an estimated €45m fee to sell him to the Premier League side.
PSV and @LFC have reached an agreement on the proposed transfer of Cody Gakpo.
The 23-year-old attacker will leave for England imminently where he will be subjected to the necessary formalities ahead of the completion of the transfer.

PSV have confirmed a deal has been agreed in principle to allow Gakpo to move to Anfield with the forward set to travel to Merseyside in the coming days.
Gakpo is expected to sign a contract until 2025, subject to international clearance, but his Liverpool debut will be delayed until the start of 2023.
