Championship side Newcastle United have been linked with a stunning move to sign Liverpool prodigy Jordan Ibe, according to the Mirror.
Liverpool accepted a £15 million offer from Bournemouth for the 20-year-old winger last week, but he’s stalling over any move to see if any other teams come calling for him.
Newcastle are one of the sides monitoring his situation, and could use him in any deal that sees Liverpool bring in Georginio Wijnaldum, whom the Magpies have slapped a £30 million price tag on this week.
Ibe is undoubtedly a talented player at Championship level, having wowed on loan at Derby County the season before last, impressing enough for Brendan Rodgers to recall him back to the first team.
The tricky youngster could be set on the left wing, allowing him to cut in on his right foot (exactly how he was played at Derby) with Matt Ritchie deployed on the right, giving Newcastle a lethal attack out wide.
Newcastle fans… What do you make of this news? Will Ibe join? Will you sell Wijnaldum? Do you think you’ll win the league this year? Let us know in the comments below!
