This is a better radar that describes him... he's been a good scorer/assister, but gives the ball away a ridiculous amount and isn't a complete attacker who is streets ahead of the Eredivisie. Just has been great in terms of the end product while the rest of his game isn't as good

Must be why your fanbase have been shitting on your owners for their transfer policy for a good few years now.Nah it’s business as usual. If we need someone, we get him. No fuss, no riddles, no efn about. I believe this is due to injuries and not Nunez, just good business.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/64035052There has been a lot of talk of strikers at United since Ronaldo's contract was terminated last month.
PSV Eindhoven's Cody Gakpo was certainly on their radar before he agreed a move to Liverpool, even if the likely transfer fee would have priced him out of a move to Old Trafford, given the significant spending last summer that manager Erik ten Hag demanded.
Imo he's a good and versatile player. Not anything eye catching but this lad got a pretty good football brain, good physique, good pace and good technique.
I wouldn’t put it quite that way, as Gakpo has in fact been impressive. However…we’re pretty well set at LW — take your pick from Rashford, Garnacho and maybe even Sancho if his rehabilitation is successful — and we’re not giving up on Antony. Where we’re still a bit weak is as striker. On his best day Martial is decent but we definitely need to upgrade on him. I’m not convinced Gakpo is the ideal upgrade. Fine, a slight upgrade, but we need to aim higher.
Time will tell. He's polished many thought-to-be turds.I think for me you could see Mane suited exactly what Klopp was trying to do. He was dynamic, hard working, could score and assist, was perfectly suited and already adapted to the Premier League, and the most important thing is that he bought into the press from the front, which for me was the basis Klopp built his success from, as all 3 forwards bought into this.
I just don't think Gakpo is that type of player, certainly in the games I've seen him for PSV against British opposition in Europe (x2 vs Leicester, x2 vs Rangers and x2 vs Arsenal). So while I think he does have some very good qualities, (his ball striking being 1 of them), I must admit I'm quite happy to see Klopp having to deviate from that elite pressing machine that made them so horrible to play against.
Probably more to do with jota and Diaz both being out/having been out a while. We can’t keep playing salah nunez and firmino as our forward line week in week out. Esp considering firmino is likely leaving and susceptible to injuries at this point in his career.Wonder if this is a panic buy from liverpool amd a reflection that nuuez is more of a work in progress than first thought.
We have Rashford, Antony, Martial every full moon or so, Sancho when he feels up for it again (probably March at this point) and an unproven youngster who's barely played at the PL level.No, we have Rashford, Antony, Martial, Sancho and Bruno
