The mooted transfer, which reportedly included defender Jarell Quansah moving in the other direction, did not sit well with the Reds, despite their admiration for the England winger. They saw Quansah as a future England international and wanted to keep him around to provide depth in a variety of positions.

If the package had been different, Liverpool might have moved forward, but after talking with the Magpies, they decided not to make an offer. There’s a chance that the discussions will pick back up this weekend.

Gordon is presently competing for England in the European Championship; if he made proceed, a medical examination in Leipzig was considered. The 23-year-old is also reportedly admired by Paris Saint-Germain.

In order to avoid losing Premier League points, Newcastle must sell before June 30 in order to comply with the Profit and Sustainability Rules. Reluctantly, insiders have revealed that selling Gordon is one option that has been considered.

The player is content at St. James’ Park and enjoys working with Eddie Howe, but he knew that his present employers and his boyhood club were having discussions.

Howe acknowledges that the team must make a deal in order to meet PSR, but he does not want to sell a player who was signed from Everton for £45 million 18 months ago. Gordon is incredibly well-liked in Tyneside and was named Newcastle’s player of the season.

In the meantime, Newcastle and Nottingham Forest are negotiating a possible trade for Anthony Elanga, a winger, which might result in Elliot Anderson leaving.

Newcastle and other clubs are juggling a number of proposals in an effort to raise enough money by Sunday, June 30, the accounting deadline, to meet PSR requirements.

Elanga was being watched by Newcastle’s scouts before making the £15 million transfer from Manchester United to Forest a year ago.

Having scored five goals in 39 games, the 22-year-old Swedish international has proven successful at the City Ground, and Newcastle feels he might be a great addition to their team.

Since Anderson, a midfielder for Newcastle, is a homegrown talent, his sale would have a stronger positive impact on the team’s PSR figures because it would be seen as an obvious profit.

The 21-year-old was reportedly mentioned in a conversation last week about Wolves defender Max Kilman, but Forest is now eager to get the Scotland U21 international into their fold and negotiations are underway.

Juventus and Chelsea have inquired about Brazilian center defender Murillo, while Forest anticipates selling Moussa Niakhate to Lyon for roughly £20 million.

Aware of the tasks that need to be completed by this weekend, Chelsea has also conducted additional checks on Newcastle’s asking price for Alexander Isak, a striker, while Forest has their own PSR issues.
