Newcastle Minteh sale could end Liverpool’s hunt for Anthony Gordon

With Newcastle United needing to make at least one major sale before July 1 to meet Premier League profit and sustainability rules, reports linking Liverpool with a transfer of left winger Anthony Gordon have been mounting over the past 24 hours.

Now, however, Newcastle have accepted a £33million offer from Brighton for Yankuba Minteh, potentially ending the Reds’ hopes of signing Everton academy graduate Gordon, who has described Anfield as his favourite stadium and Steven Gerrard as his footballing hero.

Despite this, there are rumours that a transfer of Gordon – a 23-year-old homegrown talent with potential whose arrival many would equate to a departure of Luis Diaz – to Liverpool is not quite a done deal and that the sale of Minteh may not be enough for Newcastle.

Meanwhile, the last 24 hours have also seen a surge in reports of Chelsea’s interest in Newcastle striker Alexander Isak, which, along with the rumours surrounding Gordon and now the sale of Minteh, speaks to Newcastle’s difficult financial situation.

Of the three, they were always the most willing to sell Minteh. The player performed impressively for new Liverpool manager Arne Slot last season when he was on loan at Feyenoord and some previous rumours suggested that the Reds might even be interested in signing him.

The question now for Liverpool – and Chelsea – is whether Newcastle will still be forced to sell Gordon or Isak. Previous reports suggested Newcastle wanted Liverpool’s Jarell Quansah back as part of a Gordon deal, but the Reds flatly rejected the idea.
