Newcastle United will be looking to sell players to bring on new players to strengthen their squad. One of their standout performers in the recently concluded season was Anthony Gordon. The 23-year-old Newcastle star has caught the eyes of big clubs from all across Europe. However, there was one club that was very serious about signing the English winger. And, that club was Liverpool. The Reds saw the potential in Anthony Gordon who shined under Eddie Howe last season. Gordon was born in Liverpool. So, there was also a connection there. However, having played for Everton, joining their arch-rivals would have been a bit difficult for the England International. But, Liverpool have made things easier for Gordon because they have decided not to pursue the Liverpool-born winger as they are now looking to sign a Championship winger who plays for Leeds.

Newcastle transfer news - Anthony Gordon to Liverpool

Anthony Gordon has been the star of the last season for Newcastle along with Alexander Isak. For Eddie Howe, Isak is untouchable. For Anthony Gordon, a club has to come up with an offer of at least £100m to even start a conversation with the Magpies about their star man. Liverpool was ready to do that. But, according to 90min,

"Two players to have been linked to Liverpool are Newcastle United forward Anthony Gordon and Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Jonathan Tah, both of whom have had superb seasons, but sources have told 90min that neither player will be pursued this summer."


So, it is unlikely that Anthony Gordon will leave Newcastle for Liverpool this summer and the Anthony Gordon to Liverpool deal is off the table. This Newcastle transfer news will give Geordies a sigh of relief.
