For context, the best performing player in Manchester United’s squad last season, according to WhoScored, was Cristiano Ronaldo, as he averaged a 7.11 rating, which goes to show just how impressive Gakpo was.

The young winger has continued that form into the new season, contributing three goals and two assists in his first four appearances for PSV, so he would definitely arrive at Old Trafford in a confident mood.

Ten Hag will be desperate to add attacking quality to his side before the transfer window shuts, and Gakpo’s stats last season suggest that he could add some real impetus in the final third.

The 23-year-old averaged three shots, 2.9 dribbles and 2.6 key passes per game in the Eredivise last season. Only Ronaldo would better this shot per game average, while Gakpo led all other United players in each of these areas.

It's now been eight years since Manchester United last won the Premier League crown. Do you remember everything that happened that season? First, who was the club's most expensive signing that season?

Such form and quality has seen the PSV star lauded as “phenomenal” and “special” by talent scout Jacek Kulig and under the tutelage of former United star Ruud van Nistelrooy, he has clearly become a lethal threat, earning comparisons to Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie.

Therefore, he is clearly the type of player that Ten Hag would love to have at Old Trafford, so fans will be hoping that the Red Devils pay his reported £38m fee.
