Newcastle 'in talks' over winger transfer amid Anthony Gordon fear as Liverpool play waiting game

Newcastle United have reportedly raised sufficient funds to comply with Premier League Profit and Sustainability rules - but are still said to be seeking sales this summer.

The club cashed in on Elliot Anderson and Yankuba Minteh over the weekend to bring in around £70million. Those moves came after offering Anthony Gordon to Liverpool, but the Reds turned down the approach over their request for Jarell Quansah to go the other way in any deal.

Alexander Isak has also been receiving transfer interest from Chelsea this summer. And now another attacker is being discussed as being on his way out.

Sky Sports is reporting that Newcastle are negotiating to sell Miguel Almiron to an unnamed Saudi Pro League, with the country's transfer window now open. The move would further deplete the team's attacking options, with Minteh already leaving for Brighton and Hove Albion.

Losing the Paraguay international, too, would likely only redouble their efforts to keep Gordon now that they no longer financially need to sell players. But how the reports that the player had his head turned by the rumours impact the situation remains to be seen.

Liverpool released the Kirkdale-born winger before he went on to join Everton as an 11-year-old and progress through their academy. Gordon seemingly sees any return to his boyhood club as a dream move and felt that was denied over recent days despite no formal offer being made by the Reds.

This summer, the player has lauded Steven Gerrard as one of his boyhood heroes and described Anfield as the second-best stadium he has played in, behind St James' Park, highlighting how impressive hearing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' before kick-off is. But now Liverpool will seemingly have to play a waiting game to bring Gordon back to Merseyside at some stage after no deal was done last week.
