Report: Benitez makes move for Liverpool £15m attacker, Newcastle are one of three options
By Amir Mir
Liverpool academy graduate Jordan Ibe has put his £15million move to Bournemouth on hold as he weighs up other options, according to a report.
The Reds accepted a bid of £15million from Bournemouth for their winger last week as manager Jurgen Klopp begins trimming his squad for the coming Premier League season.
The Mirror claim that Ibe has not decided on his future at Anfield and may decide to stay at Anfield and fight for his place, despite the club agreeing a fee with Eddie Howe’s team.
It is said the 20-year-old is weighing up other possible offers with Midlands club West Brom and Championship side Newcastle interested in his signature.
The England under-21 international is in no rush to sign a contract at the club as it becomes evident that Klopp wants the wide man to depart Anfield after signing Sadio Mane from Southampton for around £35 million.

Ibe broke into the Liverpool team two years ago under Brendan Rodgers and caught the eye with some impressive displays on the flanks but his progress stalled under Klopp in 2015-16.
