West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United ‘to match Bournemouth’s Jordon Ibe bid’
West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United are reportedly considering matching Bournemouth‘s £15m offer for Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe.
Liverpool are understood to have agreed the fee, a buy-back price and a sell-on clause with the Cherries, who are willing to make the 20-year-old their record signing.
However, the Mirror reports that the player is stalling on a deal in order to wait for other potential offers to come in.
The report goes on to state that Ibe is wanted by both West Brom and recently-relegated Newcastle, with both clubs pondering whether to match Bournemouth’s offer.
Bournemouth are keen to sign the youngster as a replacement for Matt Ritchie, who joined Newcastle in a £12m deal earlier this month.
