Rumors about a possible move to the Premier League started early in 2022; some of the teams included Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United. Gakpo has expressed his admiration for the English teams.
“The Premier League is a big league. Virgil van Dijk plays there with Liverpool, so I like to watch them. We are not the same league, but we try to look at the Prem and learn about it. Everybody wants to play one time in the Prem. I don’t favor one team, but I like Arsenal a lot. I looked up to Henry when I was younger because he was a tall guy who played on the wing.”
