Liverpool told to pay £75-80 million for Anthony Gordon

Arsenal face paying inflated €80m fee for forward transfer because of Manchester United

Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Newcastle United attacker Anthony Gordon this summer.

They have concrete interest in signing the 23-year-old England international and Liverpool have already spoken to Newcastle regarding a potential move. The Magpies were keen on including Jarell Quansah as a part of the deal, but Liverpool are not open to the idea.

Newcastle United are prepared to sell the player for a cash deal, but they are demanding a substantial amount of money for his services. Liverpool would have to pay a fee of around £75-80 million for Gordon and the overall deal could reach up to £100 million including add-ons, as per Football Insider.

It will be interesting to see if Liverpool are willing to spend that kind of money on the player. Although the 23-year-old has been quite impressive for Newcastle since joining the club, he has done nothing to justify that price tag.

Anthony Gordon has been given limited playing time by England boss Gareth Southgate.

Liverpool likely to be priced out of a move for Anthony Gordon

Liverpool will need to improve the other areas of their squad as well and they cannot afford to shell out £100 million on a winger. The Reds will be hoping to sign him for a more reasonable price and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.

The former Liverpool youth player is likely to be keen on the idea of joining a big club and he will hope that the two clubs can agree on a reasonable price.

Gordon scored 12 goals and picked up 11 assists in all competitions last season and he has been a key player for Newcastle since joining the club. It is no surprise that the Magpies are demanding a premium for him. His departure will weaken them in the attack and they will have to bring a top quality replacement.
