Cody Gakpo Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Following a World Cup performance that led to his signing with Liverpool, Cody Gakpo is set to be a fixture with the club moving forward. Boardroom breaks down his contract.

Cody Gakpo joined Liverpool after an exceptional showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The 23-year-old Dutch attacker was atop every European club’s target list after proving to be a pivotal piece of the potent Dutch attack. As soon as the January transfer window opened, manager Jurgen Klopp made it clear to the board of the Reds that he must add Gakpo to his future plans.

Alongside Klopp, Netherlands teammate Virgil van Dijk admittingly assisted in engineering the deal by speaking to the ex-PSV star personally. After witnessing his quality firsthand, it made sense to convince Gakpo to develop his potential in a Liverpool side whose attacking power took a hit after losing Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich last summer. As the squad continues to struggle on the attack, Gakpo’s deployment as a winger or striker will aid in the club’s new plans to sign young, versatile players who are still growing in their skillset yet can compete with the Premier League’s current stars.

Gakpo, alongside Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz, fit Liverpool’s new attacking philosophy. On a six-year deal, Klopp will have the time to mold the young dutch winger into a lone central striker or on the right flank with a striking partner. Furthermore, the chance to grow the young trio as a three-headed attack similar to its past attacking line of Salah, Mane, and Firmino.

Let’s look at Liverpool’s Cody Gakpo salary particulars following his move to Anfield.
