Newcastle United demand Jarell Quansah in deal to sell Anthony Gordon to Liverpool, move breaks down

Newcastle United insisted on including Jarell Quansah in the deal to sell Anthony Gordon to Liverpool, causing the transfer to collapse.

According to a report from HITC, Liverpool are keen on acquiring the services of Anthony Gordon as they look to reinforce their squad. They knocked on the doors of Newcastle United for his services. While the Magpies were ready to sell, they wanted Jarell Quansah to join them in return.

Arne Slot wants to sign Gordon

Arne Slot is looking to add more firepower to his squad ahead of his first campaign in charge. With the future of Mohamed Salah uncertain amidst interest from the Middle East, Slot wants to ensure they have enough quality in the final third.

The Dutch manager is a big admirer of Gordon and feels he could be an ideal fit in his system. His ability to feature anywhere in attack will be a massive tactical boost for them. Liverpool recently made an enquiry about the 23-year-old who scored 12 goals and bagged 11 assists in his 40 outings last season.

Newcastle want Quansah in return, move collapses

While the Magpies were ready to offload their star forward, they demanded a key first-team player in return. They asked about Jarell Quansah during their conversation with the Reds.

Eddie Howe’s team want to further bolster their backline and they feel the 21-year-old English centre-back could be a great addition to their squad. Quansah had a breakthrough season last time out as he managed to feature in over 30 first-team matches.

He still has three years left on his deal at the club and Liverpool have no intentions of parting ways with him. The Reds feel he has the potential to be a very important player for them in the long run and are looking to offer him a new deal.

Meanwhile, a report from the Daily Mail suggests that the talks over a move have broken down. The Magpies are under immense financial pressure and in order to balance their books, they were ready to sell the English winger. The Reds were keen on his signature but they believe Quansah heading the other way is not the right deal for them.
