Report: Everton close to contract agreement for 'sensational player, Toffees 'progressing well' in talks

Everton are close to agreeing a new contract for in-demand forward, Anthony Gordon, according to a report from iNews.

Gordon was the subject of heavy interest in the summer as the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea showed interest as the transfer window neared its close. However, the Toffees managed to keep hold of their man, pricing clubs out by demanding around £60m. Frank Lampard was determined to keep Gordon, who has started the season well for Everton.

And now, according to iNews, Gordon is closer than ever to putting pen to paper on a new contract. It’s claimed that Everton will increase his wages significantly, and those inside the club believe that things a ‘progressing well’ when it comes to getting things over the line.

Gordon has been an integral part of Lampard’s team this season and will remain so throughout the year. Dubbed a ‘sensational‘ talent, the Toffees are thought to be determined to build their future around the youngster.

Further to this news, iNews reports of how there is a ‘satisfaction’ behind the scenes at Goodison Park over their summer business. Despite selling Richarlison, keeping the likes of Gordon and Calvert-Lewin was seen as key.

TBR’s View: Gordon Can Be Everton Legend

If Anthony Gordon does pen fresh terms and can really get going under Lampard, then he has the chance to forge himself out quite the career on Merseyside.

Of course, down the line, a move to one of the Premier League’s elite might come along. But to get that move, he’ll need to produce the goods for Everton and that can only benefit the club as a whole.

It’s a big season this for Gordon now and if the Toffees can tie him down, then it’s one less distraction for the young man who can simply focus on his career.
