Gakpo deal completed, Nunes updates & Henry booed – Latest LFC News

Today’s Liverpool news round up includes news of the completion of Liverpool’s deal for Cody Gakpo, updates on a possible move for Matheus Nunes, and a bad reception for John Henry in America.


Gakpo is a Red!

Liverpool have now confirmed that they have finalised the signing of Cody Gakpo from PSV, after the formalities of the deal were completed on Tuesday.

That means the Dutchman is now officially able to begin training with his team-mates with a view to a possible debut against Wolves on Saturday.

The Reds initially announced an agreement to sign Gakpo ahead of the January transfer window on December 28.

The paperwork wasn’t done in time for him to feature against Brentford on Monday, but that was always expected to be the case.

After a harrowing defeat in west London, Liverpool could certainly do with Gakpo hitting the ground running, and with all of the Reds’ January fixtures separated by a week as things stand, he should at least have plenty of time to acclimatise on the training pitch.

Expect an update on Gakpo’s first few days as a Red from Klopp later this week.

Welcome to the best club in the land, Cody.
