The transfer market is always a domino effect that goes throughout Europe and this summer will be no different.
According to Voetbal International and Tuttomercatoweb, the Rossoneri had made an initial approach for PSV Eindhoven winger Gakpo.
However, before even getting close to the 23-year-old, Leeds United have dived in with a superior offer.
They changed tack because their star man Raphinha is on the verge of a move to Chelsea in a deal worth almost €60m.
Leeds player Raphinha had been close to Arsenal until the sudden switch today, as reported by multiple sources.
It has been a rough 48 hours for Milan, who saw LOSC defender Sven Botman have his Newcastle United medical, while today Renato Sanches switched allegiance to Paris Saint-Germain, even though they are offering Lille a lower transfer fee.
📢 🔴⚫ Confermato l’interesse del #Milan per Cody Gakpo del #PSV ma adesso sull’olandese piomba il #LeedsUnited. Con Raphinha a un passo dal #Chelsea, il #LUFC vuole chiudere presto per l’erede e Gakpo è il primo nome ⏳ ⚪ 🏴 @TuttoMercatoWeb
