Half the price of antony but a left winger. Not sure we needed him.
 
Isn't Gakpo a left winger primarily? We surely have enough players who like to cut in from the left, no?
 
Doesn't he play LW? We're stacked on the left and IMO he's a poor man's Rashford. Not particularly quick and won't be able to beat PL fullbacks.
 
Why are we stacked on the left? We’ve got Rashford and who else? Whereas we’ve got Sancho & Elanga for the right.

Yeah ziyech made more sense, this doesn't. Sancho, Martial, Rashford all can comfortably play from the left it makes no sense to add another player who is more comfortable on the left. You would think it would never happen but we did sign Sanchez in similar circumstances. If this is true then our squad planning is horrendous.
 
I was watching an Antony analysis video that said this guy makes more sense at a lower price.

At this point I’m not name watching, we need reinforcements. Whoever the manager signs off on I’m giving a chance to.
 
This signing only makes sense if we are planning to sell Rashford in the next 12 months ad we can’t get Antony this summer.

For me Sancho long term position is on the left.

From the article: Gakpo has been compared to both Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie in that he is a tall, elegant performer who has become a central striker after starting his career as a winger.
 
Let’s hope this one is true.

You guys do realise if Sancho is on the right. Rashford plays on the left? So we actually need a first team left or right winger eitherway.

Don’t think that’s true. He’s played out wide left all last season and he’s started this season in the same place. Luuk de Jong uptop.
 
I would imagine we're looking at him as a player who can play up front. I don't know a lot about him but frankly, anything that enables us to move on from Ronaldo is fine by me.

There’s something about him that just makes you think he knows how to get in scoring positions. Very smart player despite the lack of pace.
 
Would be a very solid addition and if it doesnt work out like Memphis, he should retain decent resale value.

Our squad planning is horrendous. We have a bunch of players who like to play at #10 and #11, no #6s, a bunch of left backs. Its literally throw it at the wall and see what sticks stuff.

So, basically, he's another Memphis Depay?
 
This makes me happy. I see Gakpo as a future world class #9 personally. Great talent.

I would say right winger more. That way we would have Rashford who xan play on the left and a new winger who can play on the right. We should be using Sancho's ability to play both wings to our advantage. If Rashford gets injured Sancho can play left, if the the right winger gets injured Sancho can play right. But if we get a left winger if Sancho himself gets injured we either play Rashford, Elanga or the new winger who is probably also not comfortable on the right.

A poor man’s Rashford . That’s a new one for the caf
 
They are all better suited to the left. However, Sancho is the odd one out in the sense that he is pretty damn great in both positions.
Sancho isn’t better from the left and never has been. I agree he can play there well but his best career footballs been from the right, last season he just in down the left because Greenwood was on the right & Rashford was playing so poorly on the left. Elanga can play both sides fine but his best for us has come from the right. Rashford can only play left I tend to agree.
 
Never seen him play, I know absolutely nothing about him but after watching a few YouTube videos he looks VERY average.

I know it’s not the best way to judge a player but I was expecting more from him given his stats from last season.
 
How many Dutch based players are we going to be linked with between now and end of the window.
