Newcastle United have no urgency to sell Anthony Gordon future amid Liverpool links

Newcastle United attacker Anthony Gordon has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, with Liverpool interested in him.

Liverpool are keen on signing Anthony Gordon, but Newcastle remain calm about his future and they have no urgency to sell him this summer. According to Give Me Sport, the Magpies are under no pressure to sanction the departure of the 23-year-old.

Newcastle United paid £45 million for Anthony Gordon when they signed him from Everton, and he has been an instant hit at the club. Gordon scored 12 goals and picked up 11 assists in all competitions last season. It is hardly a surprise that top clubs like Liverpool are keen on securing his signature.

The 23-year-old has established himself as one of the most exciting young attacking talents in the league, and he could prove to be a quality addition to the Liverpool attack. Liverpool need to add more cutting-edge in the final third, and the former Everton player would be a solid long-term investment.

Gordon is likely to be tempted to join his boyhood club once again, and it remains to be seen how the situation develops. Newcastle United paid £45 million for him, and they will look to make a substantial profit on the player. There have been rumours that they could demand close to a £100 million package for the player.

Liverpool could be priced out of Anthony Gordon move

It is fair to assume that Liverpool are unlikely to spend that kind of money on the England international. They will need to improve their midfield and defence as well. They cannot afford to spend £100 million on Gordon this summer.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah will be out of contract next summer, and Liverpool need to plan for his replacement. Gordon would be a solid acquisition but his valuation could complicate matters this summer. It will be interesting to see if Liverpool decide to test Newcastle’s resolve anyway in the coming weeks.

There is no doubt that the 23-year-old would improve Liverpool going forward. But his departure would weaken Newcastle severely. Newcastle have an ambitious project, and they will look to secure Champions League qualification next season. They cannot afford to sell their best players this summer.
