Jurgen Klopp spoke to Sky Sports prior to Liverpool’s game with Leicester City. He spoke about Liverpool’s spending plans and new signing Cody Gakpo:
“We are interested in Cody for a long time. So already for a while and you know our situation. So we cannot just pick players and say, okay, bring them on top, on top. So, we need to collect money a little bit and then at one point we can spend a little bit and then we collect again and all this kind of things and Cody is a very interesting player.
He’s 23-years-old. Captain of Eindhoven (PSV), came through to the Eindhoven academy. Is there really well respected and loved there for the way he developed.
The things he offers already is interesting for us. It helps us massively.
He can play all three positions or four positions, whatever you play. it’s pretty rear to be honest. Size, physicality, can shoot from outside the box. A good nose for finishing situation, is quick. Good dribbler.
Usually players develop quite well when they are with us, and that’s what we think, the basis is already really good.”
