Report: Newcastle keeping eyes on 'sensational' Anthony Gordon, with Chelsea also keen
Newcastle United are still keeping tabs on Everton winger Anthony Gordon, amid reports Chelsea are pushing to sign him.
A report from The Times last night suggested Chelsea were preparing to test Everton’s resolve with a bid of around £40m for the exciting Toffees winger. It’s claimed that Everton will try and resist any offers, with the club hoping to tie Gordon down to a new contract as well.
However, while the news of Chelsea’s interest is a new development, The Times’ report also claims that Newcastle and Eddie Howe have been keeping a firm eye on Gordon’s situation at Goodison Park. Of course, Newcastle’s interest is not brand new, given reports have claimed Dan Ashworth is actively pushing to sign Gordon.
Gordon has played in both Everton games this season and with Dominic Calvert-Lewin out injured and Richarlison sold to Tottenham, the youngster has played as a forward for Frank Lampard. It’s believed Lampard is desperate to keep Gordon at the club, albeit a £40-50m offer will tempt them.
Dubbed ‘sensational‘ for some of his performances last season, Gordon will be a key player for Everton this season.
TBR’s View: Gordon Could Replace Saint-Maximin At Newcastle
Newcastle still haven’t made the marquee signing in attack this summer and you do feel that the club will make a big splash before the window is closed.
In terms of Anthony Gordon, he’d be a fine player for Newcastle, especially if they did indeed decide to move Allan Saint-Maximin on like certain reports have mentioned.
Obviously, £40-50m will be a lot for the Magpies to shell out. But if they did want to send a message that they can attract the best young players, it would be a fine signing.
