Learn Gakpo for his own benefit, as Hirving Lozano finally leaving for PSV eindhoven. The Mexican attacker has been personally all around the Italy, but is still waiting on an agreement between the two clubs over a transfer fee of around € 40 million.
“It means that I have more of a chance on either. I have, of course, still have to prove it, but then I would have at least the opportunity to do just that,” said Gakpo on Thursday, after the PSV is at the expense of FK Haugesund and had qualified for the play-offs of the Europa League.
PSV is reportedly looking for a replacement for Lozano. The Locals would be interested in FC Groningen attacker, Ritsu Doan, who has a price tag of 7 to 8 million euros around his neck, connected.

“There is a difference between the base and substitute’
Gakpo was a Thursday, in the absence of Lozano, who with a foot injury at the liberty stadium was, at the base of the line at home against Haugesund (0-0) in the third qualifying round of the Europa League, but when he was, like his team-mate, no pots to break.
“There is a big difference between the basic and for the time being. Those two things are very different. If you have the basics, you need to be in the game, and if you get hit, you are going to run to the beat. It is a process that I am working on. That’s going to be fine”, told Gakpo.
PSV this season, is still struggling with scoring. The team’s coach, Mark van Bommel did on Sunday against ADO Den Haag (3-1 win) numerous opportunities for waste and also against Haugesund, the sights are not really keen on standing.
“I think we have most of them, but it was there today, too. I can play a game within a shot, but it could always be better. I am of the opinion that if one is going to run, we will have great results and be able to drop it,” says Gakpo.
The PSV is going to be Sunday on a visit to Heracles Almelo in the Eredivisie and play after the two-part series, with Apollon Limassol in the play-offs of the Europa League, which is a place in the group stages, the second of the European cup can be secured.
