Liverpool learns Newcastle's Anthony Gordon stance as transfer competition emerges

Anthony Gordon has emerged as a possible transfer target for Liverpool

Liverpool would reportedly have to pay an 'astronomical' fee to land Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon this summer. The former Everton winger has emerged as a potential target for the Reds after an impressive campaign at St. James' Park.

Gordon actually started out at Liverpool before joining Everton. He progressed through the ranks at Goodison Park before being sold to Newcastle in a $57m (£45m/€52m) deal in January 2023.

According to the Daily Star, Gordon is on Liverpool's radar as it plans to bring in another wide attacker this summer. It is claimed that Newcastle will have to cash in on a prized asset to comply with Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Gordon scored his 12th goal of the season in the defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday night and The Athletic's David Ornstein suggests Liverpool is not the only club monitoring the England international.

It is claimed that Manchester City and several other clubs are keen on Gordon but Newcastle has no intention of letting him go right now. Eddie Howe is known to be a huge admirer of Gordon, who has kicked on impressively since his arrival.

Should Newcastle's stance change due to pressure over FFP, the report states a huge fee would be required to do business, meaning Liverpool is unlikely to pursue a deal.

Gordon is expected to be named in Gareth Southgate's squad for the European Championships next week, having made his debut in the recent friendly defeat to Brazil. The reported interest in the 23-year-old comes amid increased speculation over Luis Díaz's future.

Incoming boss Arne Slot is known to place huge importance of the role of wide men in his team but Mundo Deportivo reports Barcelona is keen on the Colombian. Díaz remains on the same contract he signed when he joined Liverpool from Porto in 2022.

The Reds would be expected to demand around $95m (£75m/€87m) this summer and Barca's well-known financial difficulties mean a bid is unlikely. It is claimed the La Liga giants would look to sell two of its current attackers to facilitate a deal. says: Any deal for Gordon was always going to be expensive after the season he has had. Newcastle paid a decent sum for him from Everton and would likely demand close to double that to let him go. You would expect Liverpool to consider cheaper alternatives but if Díaz does go, the Reds may revisit the situation.
