Liverpool to finalize Anthony Gordon transfer following discussions with Newcastle after exploring medical options…



Liverpool to finalize Anthony Gordon transfer after medical assessment subsequent to discussions with Newcastle.


Liverpool is considering a transfer for Anthony Gordon, with discussions having taken place with Newcastle.


The medical examination is currently being explored following the talks. Gordon, the winger from Newcastle and England, has become a significant target for Liverpool.


Reports suggest that Newcastle United was close to selling Gordon to Liverpool earlier this month, with preparations for a medical already underway.


Gordon has caught the eye of Arne Slot during his first transfer window at Anfield.


However, the potential deal seems to have stalled for the time being. Newcastle, like other Premier League clubs, are facing financial pressure to offload players before June 30 to adhere to Profit and Sustainability Rules.


Failing to comply could result in a points deduction, a consequence that affected Everton and Nottingham Forest last season and is expected to impact more clubs in the upcoming season.


Newcastle reportedly considered offloading Gordon to Liverpool despite signing him from Everton for £45million 18 months ago, as per the Mail.


The 23-year-old winger, who was named Newcastle’s Player of the Season, had an impressive first full campaign with 12 goals and 11 assists.


Although he is content at St. James Park and has a good relationship with Eddie Howe, it is uncertain if he would have been open to joining Liverpool, the rival of his boyhood club.


Negotiations between Liverpool and Newcastle advanced to the point where a medical in Leipzig was being contemplated.


Gordon has made his way to Germany after being selected by Gareth Southgate for the 26-man England squad for Euro 2024, recognizing his strong performance at the club level.


He made a brief appearance during stoppage time in England’s recent match against Slovenia, with Phil Foden being the preferred choice on the left wing.


Reports suggest that Liverpool showed interest in a deal but were not satisfied with the proposed terms, which included Jarell Quansah moving in the opposite direction.


Liverpool reportedly rejected the swap deal as they are keen on keeping Quansah, whom they see as a potential future England national team player.


The 21-year-old defender was included in Southgate’s initial training squad this summer, however, he was not selected for the final squad.


Liverpool did not submit a formal offer for Gordon due to Newcastle’s demands, but discussions may potentially restart over the weekend.


Paris Saint-Germain has also been mentioned as potential suitors as Luis Enrique looks for dynamic attacking options to replace Kylian Mbappe.


Despite the looming PSR deadline on Sunday, Newcastle may opt to retain Gordon even if Liverpool decides to pursue him again.
