Liverpool Keen on England International as PL Club Face Selling Key Men

Newcastle’s season has seen Anthony Gordon shine brightly, catching the eye of Liverpool, who are said to be keen on the winger’s impressive form.

Liverpool are reportedly considering a £100m bid for Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon. The 23-year-old English player has had an impressive debut season at St James Park and is anticipated to be part of Gareth Southgate’s squad for the upcoming European Championships.

Liverpool’s scouts have been impressed by Gordon’s consistent performances, as they plan for the post-Jurgen Klopp era.

Despite only joining Newcastle last August for £45 million from Everton, Gordon could be on the market as the Saudi-owned club seek to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, according to reports from the Daily Star.

This development is likely to worry Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, given Gordon’s recent accolade as the club’s Player of the Season and his popularity among fans.

However, it would require a bid close to £100m from Liverpool to seriously challenge Newcastle’s resolve to retain their key player.

Liverpool, who are on the brink of appointing Arne Slot from the Netherlands as Klopp’s successor, are yet to finalise their strategy regarding significant investments in individual targets like Gordon.

However, there is a clear indication that they consider the twice-capped England international as the prime choice to strengthen their flanks, following a lackluster performance in the title run-in.

Newcastle United’s formidable position in the league and probable European qualification for the next season notwithstanding, Liverpool might still have an opportunity to acquire Gordon.

Notably, despite his progression at Goodison Park, Gordon has remained a fervent Liverpool supporter throughout his life. He had previously been associated with their youth setup before transitioning to Everton at the age of 11.
