Liverpool sporting director shares transfer stance amid links with Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon

Anthony Gordon has been in the news lately for worrying times for Newcastle United.

The striker is believed to have been angered after Newcastle held talks with Liverpool over a potential sale as they desperately tried to raise cash to comply with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules.

Gordon, however, has been vocal about his love of working with Eddie Howe, so there will certainly be hope of putting an end to that particular saga.

Indeed, there has even been talk of a new contract at St James’ Park, which should do the trick.

Still, it’s not a bond that should disappear until the club or Gordon himself speaks out.

With that in mind, it’s worth checking out what Liverpool have said about their summer plans.

Richard Hughes has been appointed sporting director at Anfield as the Reds look to turn things around following the departure of Jurgen Klopp.

Hughes, who was also linked with a move to Newcastle before joining Liverpool, spoke to the media on Friday alongside new Reds boss Arne Slot.

Asked about his plans for this summer, Hughes admitted the club would be “opportunistic” in the transfer market.

“With the window open, we’re always going to be opportunistic, if we can, if we can improve certain areas as we go forward, we’ll look to do that,” he said (via Liverpool’s official website).

Newcastle still very confident of keeping Anthony Gordon

Fortunately, Newcastle are believed to be confident of keeping Gordon.

Now that the PSR deadline has passed, it would certainly take a mammoth offer to tempt the club into selling a 23-year-old with the world at his feet.

Being open to a move to Liverpool is understandable from Gordon’s perspective, but hopefully a new contract and the ambition he demonstrated at Newcastle will be enough for him to move on from this saga.

Newcastle will undoubtedly be better for it.
