According to FootMercato, Leeds United are interested in PSV Eindhoven’s Kodi Gakpo as a possible replacement for Rafinha.

Leeds are set to lose their Brazilian talisman in this summer’s transfer window, and are now making contingency plans in case the winger leaves.

Hakeem Ziyech is an alleged target, and now, Gakpo has swung into the mix.

Gackpo has made a revelation in the Netherlands this season. He scored 19 goals and made another 14 assists, while his exploits earned him the Eredivisie Player of the Year award.

The winger beat some tough opponents for the award, including Manchester United target Jurien Timber and new Borussia Dortmund signing Sebastian Haller.

Gakpo’s PSV did not win the league, but was a good value for the award as he scored 12 goals and 13 assists in just 22 domestic league starts.

Unfortunately for Leeds, they are not the only club to have Gkpo. Arsenal are also keen, and according to this report, the Gunners could move to the winger if their own pursuit for Rafinha is unsuccessful.

Arsenal have already rejected a bid for Rafinha, but Leeds may consider selling the attacker to the Gunners to clear the way for Gakpo.

Whether the Dutch international ends up at land Rode remains to be seen, but there is a very good chance that the 23-year-old will be in the Premier League next season, whether at Leeds, Arsenal or any other club.
