‘I’ll say it again’: Paul Merson believes Everton could do the ‘deal of the century’ before deadline day
There’s been plenty of speculation over Anthony Gordon’s future.
Gordon was linked with a move to Tottenham this summer, but a move to north London looks unlikely.
Chelsea appears to be the 21-year-old’s most likely destination if he leaves Goodison Park.
However, Merson believes if Chelsea offered a part-exchange deal for Gordon, Everton would be mad not to accept it: “I said it last week and I’ll say it again, I don’t understand these Anthony Gordon links.
“The kid’s a good player, but the transfer fee mentioned is enormous!
Selling Gordon could be the ‘deal of the century’ for Everton
Everton have had a poor start to the season, failing to win any of their first four matches.
Frank Lampard will be glad Gordon is still at the club, after his important goal against Brentford on Saturday.
Lampard has warned Gordon that he would see a ‘different side to him’ if he refused to play to try and push through a move.
However, Chelsea’s offer for Gordon is a very tempting one.
Everton want another striker, and Armando Broja would fit that role brilliantly.
Lampard has already worked closely with Broja, and has been linked with signing the Albanian already this summer.
Gallagher is another quality player, and would fill the central midfield role Everton want to strengthen.
Leander Dendoncker has been linked with a move to Goodison Park, but wouldn’t be required if Gallagher arrived.
Lampard seems adamant Everton won’t sell Gordon this week.
However, it’s hard to disagree with Merson’s ‘deal of the century’ comments.
