As a result, Fabrizio Romano revealed in his Daily Briefing via GIVEMESPORT that, as things stand, Liverpool are not expected to meet Newcastle’s demands to sign Gordon which means a move is unlikely to happen ahead of the PSR deadline.

The journalist goes on to explain that the Merseyside giants will need to present a 'crazy' proposal in order to land the England international, as a deal for the forward never reached an advanced stage due to the huge gap in valuations between both clubs.
