Report: Newcastle United are keen on signing PL side's top scorer in January, he's just 'sensational'

The transfer window may have just closed, but Newcastle United are already looking towards January.

The Northern Echo reports that Eddie Howe’s side are already planning moves for when the window re-opens.

The report suggests that Newcastle are still keen on signing Everton winger Anthony Gordon.

The ‘sensational’ 22-year-old is currently Everton’s joint top goal scorer this season.

Gordon was very closely linked with a move to Chelsea as the window closed, but has put that speculation behind him.

Newcastle were also credited with interest, and remain keen on signing Gordon in a few months’ time.

Newcastle still keen on signing Gordon

It’s been a positive start to the season for Eddie Howe’s side.

They currently sit 11th in the table, having only lost once in the league.

Defensively, Newcastle have been very solid, with Sven Botman and Nick Pope already proving to be brilliant signings.

Alexander Isak found the back of the net against Liverpool on his debut, but may still need time to bed in.

Howe will want to continue to improve his attacking options, and Gordon could be an upgrade on Miguel Almiron.

Frank Lampard has used Gordon more on the left or through the middle this season, but he can also play on the right.

He would be capable of matching Almiron’s work-rate, which is arguably his best asset.

Gordon is also more effective than Almiron going forward.

He may also link up well with Allan Saint-Maximin and either Isak or Callum Wilson.

Whether Newcastle will still be keen on signing Gordon in January when Everton name their asking price is another matter.

It previously put off Chelsea last month, but Newcastle have plenty of money to spend going forward.
