Former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has warned Manchester United against signing PSV star and Netherlands international Cody Gakpo.

Gakpo has been linked a move to Manchester United in January, having recorded a staggering 13 goals and 17 assists in just 24 games for his club so far this season.

The 23 year old has also scored at the World Cup in Netherlands 2-0 victory over Senegal.

“Man United do not need another flitty player like Gakpo in their ranks,” Sheringham told BoyleSports.

“We need a centre-forward who can lead the line now that [Cristiano] Ronaldo has gone. We need a focal point for the team to hit and who can bring players into play.

“We cannot go for another technical player who can play as a winger or a false nine. We already have so many of those in [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford and [Jadon] Sancho and right now it’s a bit of a detriment to be honest.”
