The Reds have reportedly accepted a big offer from Bournemouth for winger Jordon Ibe.

Jurgen Klopp could be about to part with a player who made 27 Premier League appearances for Liverpool during the 2015/16 campaign.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Anfield outfit have accepted a £15million Bournemouth bid for Ibe.

Last season, 15 of the winger's 27 appearances for Klopp's side were from the subs bench as Ibe failed to fully impose himself on the German's first-team plans.

Ibe was unable to capitalise on the departure of £50million-man Raheem Sterling to Manchester City last summer, and now looks to be on his way out of the club.

He is thought to have been given permission to talk to the club managed by Eddie Howe, following the accepted offer.

The England U21 international scored just twice for Liverpool last season, once in the Premier League and once in the Europa League, while he managed just two assists across the entire league campaign.

Sadio Mane's £30million arrival at Anfield seems to have pushed Ibe further down the Anfield pecking order, with Klopp seemingly happy to dispose of the winger's services.
