Liverpool could now have to pay £100m to seal significant summer signing


Liverpool could have to pay £100m to complete the signing of Newcastle United winger Anthony Gordon this summer, according to a new claim.

The Reds have been constantly linked with a move for the 23-year-old in recent weeks, with the England international seen as a primary target to bring in.

Granted, Gordon’s Everton past would make it a controversial piece of business, but he is a boyhood Liverpool supporter whose head appears to have been turned.

Newcastle are clearly desperate to keep hold of one of their most important players, however, especially as he only completed a move from Goodison Park last summer.

Now, a fresh update regarding Liverpool’s pursuit of Gordon has emerged, with Football Insider claiming that an eye-watering £100m could be needed for the Merseysiders to prise him away from St James’ Park:

“Newcastle United have told Liverpool they want a jaw-dropping total package of £100million for Anthony Gordon this summer, sources have told Football Insider. The Merseyside giants have a concrete interest in signing the England international, 23, and talks have taken placed between the Premier League rivals.

“Newcastle initially requested Jarell Quansah to be part of any potential deal involving Gordon, but Liverpool have rejected that idea.However, the north-east giants would be willing to accept a straight-cash deal although they are holding out for a huge profit on their £45million signing from Everton in January 2023.”

Our thoughts on Liverpool’s pursuit of Gordon…

At this point, it seems fairly obvious that Gordon wants to join Liverpool in the current transfer window, while the Reds would also seemingly want him to be a part of Arne Slot’s first squad.

The Englishman has matured into an explosive wide player who should continue to improve all the time, and a tally of 11 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League last season was an impressive return.

Many are crying out for him to be more involved for the Three Lions at Euro 2024, and there is no reason why he shouldn’t improve further in the coming years.

Gordon could also be viewed as an improvement on Luis Diaz, too, should the Colombian depart, although that appears to be unlikely currently, which suggests a move for the former may not materialise.
