Liverpool were forced into moving earlier for Cody Gakpo than they planned after injuries to their forward line and rival interest from Manchester United, reports have claimed.

Gakpo reached an agreement with Jurgen Klopp's side on Wednesday, and signed from PSV for £44 million when the transfer window opened on New Year's Day.

The signing is something of a coup for Liverpool, as the Dutchman had been heavily linked with Manchester United until just days before the deal was agreed.
