Newcastle United are ready to raise the stakes in their bid to sign Sheyi Ojo, according to a report.

The Gazette reported last month that a loan move for Ojo had been knocked back by Liverpool.

However, The Sun claim today Newcastle are ready to return with a £10million bid for the 20-year-old.

Ojo, also a loan target for Middlesbrough, didn't make Liverpool's 25-man squad for the Premier League Asia Trophy.

And the winger will now assess his options.

Middlesbrough had been favourites to sign Ojo – who helped England's Under-20s win the World Cup this summer – on loan this summer.

But The Sun report that a Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could be persuaded to sell Ojo.

United have been involved in weekend talks with Norwich City over a proposed £10million move for winger Jacob Murphy.
