Liverpool's summer transfer activity looks set to continue this week as reports emerged on Wednesday night that the club have agreed a £15 million fee to sell promising young winger Jordon Ibe to Bournemouth.

After impressing in the second half of the 2014-15 season following a loan spell at Derby County, Ibe enjoyed something of a breakthrough season at Anfield last term.

The 20-year-old played 41 matches in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp's side, scoring four goals including strikes in the Premier League, League Cup, and Europa League campaigns.

Touted by many Reds fans as potentially the natural successor to former star Raheem Sterling, the England Under-21 winger has been tipped for a bright future in the game.

However, it appears as though Klopp does not see the youngster as integral to his plans, as it appears as though Liverpool are gearing up to sell Ibe to increasingly big-spending Bournemouth.

Liverpool's conveyor belt of young talented attacking players will continue, with teenager Sheyi Ojo waiting in the wings, and the Reds obviously feel that the fee offered is too good to refuse.

Reacting on Twitter, Reds supporters seemed divided on the deal, with some suggesting that they should take the eight-figure fee and run.

Others, however, had reservations about letting go such a clearly talented young player, and there were several calls for the club to insert a buy-back clause in the terms of the deal in case Ibe's development kicks on rapidly after the move.
