Gakpo, 20,  has been in fine form for PSV this season scoring twice and providing two assists in 10 games in all competitions.

The winger has already been watched by Dutch senior national team manager Ronald Koeman.

He becomes the second Dutch player of Ghanaian origin to pull out of the game after Myron Boadu also left camp on Thursday due to injury.
