Bayern, Lille to move on Gakpo? (Voetbal International)

Bayern Munich and Lille OSC are among the club looking at PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gakpo:

There is already a lot of interest in the attacker, but only for the real European top, Gakpo already wants to leave PSV. For example, the French champion Lille OSC would like to take over Gakpo. Just like Olympique Marseille, while Olympique Lyon also thinks about the footballer. But Lille reportedly wants to pay an amount of eighteen million euros, where PSV expects to get thirty million plus for the self-trained talent.

That European top club could still report, because Gakpo is also on the list at Bayern Munich. However, the German record champion has not yet reported to PSV, but has informed his agents of SEG about him.
