It looks like the transfer to bring Kaide Gordon to Anfield is closing in on being a done deal.
Sports journalist Pete O’Rourke broke the news this afternoon and reckons it’ll be completed by the weekend.

Gordon is a 16-year-old who has wowed for Derby County at youth level and already has a senior appearance in the Championship.
He is an attacking midfielder of enormous potential and we hope he can potentially be our next Harvey Elliott…
We acquired Elliott from Fulham as a 15-year-old and he’s currently on loan at Blackburn for who is already one of their best players – aged 17.
Gordon will come with similarly rave reviews and it will be great to get him in at Kirkby training alongside our other talented youngsters in a hope to eventually come in and work alongside Jurgen Klopp’s first-team.
Given these troubling times, the rumoured £3m is a serious commitment, which shows how highly the club’s scouts must rate Gordon.
