Gordon ‘wants LFC’ & Slot press conference set – Latest Liverpool FC News

Two stories have emerged regarding Liverpool’s move for Anthony Gordon this summer, while Arne Slot‘s first press conference as head coach is confirmed.


Two new Gordon to Liverpool updates

Gordon has been linked with a switch to Anfield from Newcastle in recent days, with the England international a boyhood Reds supporter.

Now, two fresh updates have dropped, the first of which from The Athletic claims that there are “lingering fears” from the Magpies that the winger wants to move to Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph‘s Luke Edwards claims that Joe Gomez was part of a potential package for the 23-year-old, acting as an alternative to Jarell Quansah in a swap deal.

Edwards added that Gordon “wanted the move” and “his head has been turned by the interest shown in him.”
