Liverpool ‘identify’ two Premier League transfer alternatives for Anthony Gordon

Liverpool ‘identify’ two Premier League transfer alternatives for Anthony Gordon

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will return to the race with Newcastle for Anthony Gordon.

The Reds, however, may have some alternative options in mind. Talks over a potential move for Gordon collapsed last week, despite Liverpool seemingly having a genuine interest in the England international. Newcastle throwing Jarell Quansah into the mix, however, was always going to be met with short shrift.




According to The Athletic, Liverpool still retain an interest in Gordon, whose head has reportedly been turned. The Reds, however, could have a few options in reserve, which could come in handy now that Newcastle appear to have eased their concerns over PSR somewhat.

According to CaughtOffside, Liverpool have Premier League duo Mohamed Kudus and Eberechi Eze on a list of backup options should Gordon be out of reach now. Nico Williams is the third name mentioned, although the Spanish star has indicated he is not looking to leave Athletic Bilbao.

Kudus will certainly be a familiar name to Liverpool fans, having been linked with a move to Anfield last summer before joining West Ham. He has been linked with a move to the Reds again in recent weeks, although he would almost certainly not come cheap.

The former Ajax star is believed to have had a $108m (£85m/€100m) release clause inserted into his contract with the Hammers, although it expired on June 30, according to Fabrizio Romano. The Reds could therefore face paying even more for his services.

Eze is another name that has been linked this summer, with claims that Liverpool have made contact with his agent. The 25-year-old could potentially be a cheaper option than Kudus, although with Michael Olise moving to Bayern Munich, Crystal Palace are unlikely to be keen on losing another of their attacking stars.
