According to sources, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea have all expressed interest in signing Newcastle United winger Anthony Gordon. Gordon has matured quickly since moving to St James' Park and has established himself as an important player for the Magpies. The England international flattered to deceive at Everton, but Eddie Howe's recruiting staff opted to take a chance on him, and it's beginning to pay off.

Liverpool and Manchester United are among the clubs showing interest in Gordon. It would be another risk for any potential buying club since Gordon would still need to demonstrate his consistency at the highest level.

Even though Liverpool is now expressing the most interest in signing Gordon, Manchester United is still keen on doing so. It's believed that any team hoping to recruit him during the summer transfer season may have to pay up to £75 million. It makes sense that the Magpies don't want to lose their fast winger, and the report implies that Gordon is content at St. James' Park and isn't eager to leave the team.

Many clubs interested to sign Anthony Gordon

Gordon, who hasn't played much for Gareth Southgate's England, will now be concentrating on Euro 2024. Managing a possible transfer in the background will be an unpleasant diversion, particularly if a move seems improbable because Newcastle is probably keen to retain him with the team.

According to the reports, Gordon's attention has been drawn to Liverpool, and Newcastle is concerned about his present state of mind. Liverpool, Gordon's boyhood club, refused to match Newcastle's asking price, despite the former Everton winger's desire to join Anfield.

Losing Gordon would be a significant setback for Newcastle United, but they've been doing all necessary to ensure they meet profit and environmental rules, so sales were always expected this summer. Dan Ashworth signed Gordon, regarded as 'energetic', from the Toffees, and the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager completed his transfer to Manchester United this week.
