Liverpool FC is reportedly eyeing Newcastle United winger Anthony Gordon as a potential marquee signing for the upcoming transfer window, marking a significant move in their post-Jurgen Klopp era.

The 23-year-old’s stellar performances under Eddie Howe’s management have not only earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad but also attracted the attention of top clubs across Europe.

Gordon’s impressive stats, with 10 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League this season, have positioned him as a coveted asset for Liverpool. However, Newcastle’s reluctance to part ways with the player, whom they acquired for £45 million from Everton last August, could complicate negotiations. The Magpies, aiming to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, are already facing potential departures of key players like Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimarães.

Speculation suggests it would take a hefty sum, possibly close to £100 million, to sway Newcastle into considering Gordon’s departure. Despite their current sixth-place standing in the Premier League and potential European football next season, retaining Gordon might prove challenging for Newcastle amidst Liverpool’s interest.

In other transfer rumors:

  • AC Milan is keen on RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko, with a reported €50 million offer on the table.
  • Barcelona’s interest in Villarreal’s Álex Baena faces financial hurdles despite a willingness to negotiate his release clause.
  • Juventus faces competition from multiple clubs for Bologna’s Riccardo Calafiori, with a reported asking price of €25 million.
  • Sevilla is considering a move for Lazio’s Luis Alberto, amid interest from clubs in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
  • AZ Alkmaar’s Yukinari Sugawara attracts attention from Everton, Brighton & Hove Albion, Internazionale, and VfL Wolfsburg, with a potential transfer fee of around €6 million.

As the summer transfer window approaches, these rumors and speculations are likely to intensify as clubs across Europe strategize their squad reinforcements.
