Gakpo's addition meant a great deal for the Reds who have two of their forwards sidelined for months due to injury.

Luis Diaz is expected to return in March and Diogo Jota in February, with the later being out of action since October.

Liverpool acquired the service of Cody Gakpo in a blow to Arsenal and Manchester United, PSV confirmed the deal on Monday evening.

Now, the Reds's Premier League rivals missing out means they should be wary of the winger.

Former United and Arsenal key forward Robin van Persie had sent a blunt warning earlier this season about Gakpo's quality.

Van Persie told BT Sport : "[Gakpo] is a good player. He always finds a way in most games to have an influence, in terms of making an assist or a goal, he’s always dangerous.

"He is not really an out-and-out striker. He can play as a No.10, he can play on the wing, or as a false striker, he can play in those four positions in front.

"He has a good physique, he is strong, fast, he can dribble. He is an all-round player."

Gakpo scored three times during the World Cup in Qatar making him the first Dutch player to score in all three Group stages matches for the Netherlands national team.
