Newcastle United are considering moving for Everton winger Anthony Gordon, a target for Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
According to a report by Daily Mail, Newcastle United want to revive their interest in Everton youngster Anthony Gordon. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also tracking the 21-year-old English winger.
Newcastle United have remained silent in the transfer market so far. But the decision to send Chris Wood to Nottingham Forest could be an indication of their willingness to get things done on an urgent basis.
Their summer outlay saw the arrival of some big signings, with the likes of Sven Botman and Alexander Isak arriving at St. James’ Park to make them pretty palpable in the Premier League title race.
The Magpies’ foremost priority is to upgrade their existing wing players. And Gordon has been on their list for quite some time. Newcastle United had a bid rejected for the 21-year-old winger in the summer and will further tease the Toffees with a lucrative offer as it stands.
Everton have stayed defiant in their stance till now. But they are under severe pressure to raise some funds to reinvest in their squad. Gordon was recently confronted by some Everton supporters on the street, and the academy product might have a change of heart after the latest incident.
Chelsea also came with the cash register ringing in the summer. But the Merseysiders rebuffed their £60 million bid. Having roped in a number of players already this month, Chelsea might revisit their interest in the youngster in the summer. But the Blues face competition from Tottenham apart from Newcastle United.
Tottenham also enquired about the availability of the player, who had a breakout 2021/22 season. The 21-year-old has failed to build on his earlier success, and it remains to be seen whether the north Londoners come back with a formal offer.
Time is running out for Everton as Gordon’s value has eroded by quite a mile. And their £50 million valuation will be hard to catch up with the current circumstances. Newcastle’s wealthy owners have been splashing the cash since their takeover in 2021 and are adamant about injecting funds continuously until the Magpies create their own ecosystem in the English league.
