The sublime goal was yet another huge moment for the 23-year-old PSV Eindhoven sensation, who now has a mega 33 goal contributions for club and country this season.

Heavily linked with Manchester United during the summer transfer window, the Red Devils will now be facing even more competition, talkSPORT has been told.

Former West Ham striker Dean Ashton said: “A young player at the top of his game, brimming with his confidence after his goal against Senegal… it was past the goalkeeper before he could even imagine to save it.

“It was a fantastic strike, he totally took charge of that situation.

“What a star this young man is going to be. He is just one of those rising stars that every club will be looking at.”

The Eindhoven-born attacker is in his fifth season of senior football after breaking through with his boyhood club, and continues to develop at a rapid pace.

Countryman Erik ten Hag has clearly been impressed with United showing a strong interest in Gakpo earlier this year, before fellow Premier League side Southampton are also reported to have tried to swoop in.

Reports claim the Red Devils are at the front of the queue, though, with Portuguese football insider Pedro Almeida recently Tweeting, “Cody Gakpo will be a Manchester United player in January”.
