Arne Slot places first transfer bid for Liverpool after being linked with £40m Newcastle talent…



Arne Slot decides on first Liverpool transfer signing following rumors of interest in £40m Newcastle standout.


Arne Slot, the newly appointed manager of Liverpool, has made his first transfer decision by ruling out the possibility of signing Newcastle winger Yankuba Minteh.


Despite having previously worked with Minteh at Feyenoord, Slot has no interest in reuniting with the player at Anfield.


Minteh had an impressive season at Feyenoord, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists in 37 appearances.


This led to speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool, but according to the Liverpool Echo, the club has no intention of pursuing this transfer.


Minteh has been rumored to be a potential transfer target for Liverpool, as Newcastle is reportedly willing to sell the player this summer.


The Gambian player is valued at £40 million, but according to the Liverpool Echo, a move to Anfield is not being considered.


Despite Slot’s admiration for Minteh and Liverpool’s interest in adding a new winger, the 19-year-old is not currently a priority for the club.


Earlier this year, Slot praised Minteh’s progress in an interview with Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport, highlighting his experience playing in his home country where tactics are not as emphasized.


If you possess such remarkable speed, it becomes an immense advantage. With just one move, he disappears, making it impossible for us to catch up with him. I believe that his decision-making skills are already improving in the final stages. Unfortunately, the downside for us is that if his choices continue to excel, he will most likely no longer be a part of our team.


There have been reports suggesting that clubs in Italy and Germany have expressed interest in acquiring Minteh’s services. Newcastle is considering the possibility of selling him in order to comply with the profit and sustainability (PSR) regulations of the Premier League.


Addressing the speculation surrounding his future, Minteh stated in an interview with Voetbal International, “I am uncertain about the club’s plans for me and what lies ahead. Perhaps Newcastle intends to loan me out once again…


My ultimate aim is to play in the Premier League, and Newcastle is the team that believes in me the most.


I am open to whatever the future holds, and I am confident that one day I will be competing in the Premier League.
