According to the Mirror, Liverpool have accepted a £15 million bid from Bournemouth for Jordon Ibe.

The Cherries are in the market for a winger this summer after they allowed Matt Ritchie to depart for Newcastle United.

Eddie Howe is a big fan of winger Jordon Ibe and believes that he can help him blossom at the Goldsands Stadium.

He has now made his move for the 20-year-old, making a £15 million bid for his services, which Liverpool have begrudgingly accepted according to the Mirror.

The youngster is a part of manager Jurgen Klopp’s first team for next season and was not looking to sell him at any point.

He made 41 appearances for the side last season after he signed a new five-year deal last year.

However, the German boss believes that the winger should at lest be given the chance to talk to Bournemouth about a move and has accepted their bid.

It now remains to be seen whether Eddie Howe can convince him to make the move to the south coast.

Ibe could be tempted by the offer of first team football, which may not be as easy to secure at Liverpool following the arrival of Sadio Mane from Southampton.
