REPORT: Club Fear That Liverpool ‘Could Return With A Cash Bid’ For £100M Rated Premier League Star

Liverpool may still revive their interest in Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon before the end of the summer transfer window, according to Chronicle Live.

The website’s chief reporter Lee Ryder says that sources have told him that the Reds “could return with a cash bid” for the England international.

Talks broke down for Gordon last week, with it being suggested that the Magpies wanted Jarell Quansah as part of a swap deal.

Chronicle Live claim that Newcastle’s new sporting director Paul Mitchell may have to make his first big decision if Arne Slot’s side opt to restart negotiations about Gordon.

Liverpool may have to pay nine figures

It is believed that Newcastle value the 23-year-old at £100m. They signed the player from Everton for £45m at the beginning of 2023 and it looks like they are keen to get more than double that amount from his potential sale.

Such a fee would not be beyond the Reds’ reach. They were prepared to pay £110m for Moises Caicedo last summer before they lost out on the Ecuadorian international to Chelsea.

They may, however, regard Gordon’s asking price as inflated, and that could consequently lead them to cool their interest in the player.

Does Gordon have other suitors?

Some reports have suggested that Manchester United and Chelsea are keeping tabs on the winger’s situation too but, so far, Liverpool are the only team to have held formal discussions with Newcastle.

The Reds also have other factors in their favour. Gordon has less than two years left on his contract and there are suggestions that his head has been turned by the prospect of moving to Anfield.

For now, there is no indication that the Merseysiders will revive their pursuit of the winger but that could change over the coming days and weeks.
