“We are not the same kind of league but I think we try to look at the Prem and learn about it. Everybody wants to play one time in the Prem. I don’t favour one team but I like Arsenal a lot. I looked up to [Thierry] Henry when I was younger because he was a tall guy who played on the wing.”
However, it does appear that the 23-year-old has ambitions of playing in the Champions League, which could dent Arsenal’s hopes of potentially signing the wide man after being pipped to a top four place by north London rivals Tottenham last season.
“If I can make a step to a team who plays in the Champions League every season, of course it is my dream,” Gakpo added. “But I still have a contract and there is a new coach coming in — but maybe there comes a club I cannot say no to.”
