Liverpool are reportedly sweating over Premier League approval in their bid to sign a 16-year-old Derby wonderkid.
If Liverpool can persuade the midfielder to sign then the add-ons could take the deal up to £3m.
According to the Echo, Manchester United and Tottenham are also interested in the player, who made his senior debut for the Rams as a substitute in the 4-0 win against Birmingham at the end of December.
He has featured regularly in Wayne Rooney’s squad but cannot sign a professional deal until his 17th birthday in October.
Rooney has admitted the club rate the player highly.
Rooney said: “Kaide is a fantastic player and he has got a lot of potential.
“He has come through the academy. He is 16, he has got a lot of development to do. He’s definitely at the right place to do that.
“Of course there will be interest in Kaide because he is a fantastic player, so we expect there to be interest in him.
“We can control what we are doing at this football club, but we can’t control if other teams make bids for our players.”
Liverpool waiting on Premier League
But The Athletic claims that while a deal has been agreed, it has not yet been sealed.
The Premier League will also need to approve Gordon transferring clubs. Indeed, a deal could take a week to be processed.
The Daily Telegraph also reported that the Reds have beaten bitter rivals United to the player’s signature.
Gordon has been labelled the ‘best’ for his age in the ‘country’ by Derby coaches.
His imminent arrival will add to a growing list of talented youngsters arriving on Merseyside.
Liverpool signed Calum Scanlon, 15, from Birmingham last month, before adding Stefan Bajcetic, 16, from Celta Vigo.
