Report: Newcastle now looking to sign 'sensational' PL winger, Alan Shearer claims he's absolutely 'fearless'
Newcastle United want to sign academy graduate winger Anthony Gordon from Everton.
90Min claim that Gordon is one of the names on Newcastle’s list as they prepare to make a huge offer for Moussa Diaby.
It seems Diaby is the man they really want but Gordon is an option amid Everton’s financial issues which have already seen them sell Richarlison to Tottenham this summer.
Gordon enjoyed something of a breakthrough season last term, as the Toffees got away from relegation danger late on in the season.
Newcastle want Gordon
That earned him some rave reviews, including from Newcastle legend Alan Shearer, who told the Premier League’s official YouTube channel: “A young man that has been causing quite a bit of excitement is Anthony Gordon.
“Everton fans have really gotten behind the winger who has shown passion and plenty of ability in what has been a tough season for the Toffees.
“I’ve personally been impressed by his fearless attitude, he’s not afraid to get stuck in and he tries to make things happen going forward, putting plenty of crosses into the box.”
On top of that, Gordon was hailed as ‘sensational‘ by former Toffees man James McFadden after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United last season.
He is an England Under-21 international who seems to have a huge career in the game ahead of him, and Everton are unlikely to want to let him go.
Tottenham sniffed around earlier in the window but it is unclear whether they will go back for him after getting Richarlison.
