Newcastle United have agreed to a £40 million deal with Everton for Anthony Gordon to end a saga surrounding the attacker.
Fabrizio Romano confirmed an agreement between Newcastle United and Everton worth £40 million for Anthony Gordon. The 21-year-old winger will undergo medical tests in 24 to 48 hours. The move will end a long, drawn-out saga that has engulfed the Toffees in the last few days.
Everton might come to rue their attempts to keep Anthony Gordon in the summer when Chelsea came calling with a big offer. The Blues offered a reported £60 million for the 21-year-old winger late in the window, but the Toffees stood firm on keeping him at the club.
With Everton languishing in the relegation zone once again and the crisis that rides over their head, Gordon thought about leaving. Chelsea were expected to return with an offer, but they have already made sufficient attacking signings in this widow.
In comes Newcastle United with interest in the 21-year-old winger as they held talks with Everton to find a solution. The Toffees might have rejected at least one approach from the Magpies for Gordon, as they set the asking price at £60 million.

As soon as their interest became evident, Gordon was keen on joining Newcastle United and even went on strike to force a move through. Everton had no choice but to negotiate with Eddie Howe’s side over a transfer for the 21-year-old winger.
Newcastle were expected to sign Gordon imminently, and now they have agreed on a £40 million deal with Everton for the 21-year-old winger. Fabrizio Romano insists personal terms with the player is not an issue and that it was already in place.
Gordon will arrive at Tyneside to undergo his medicals in the next 24-48 hours. The move might excite Newcastle fans as the 21-year-old winger is considered one of the top talents in English football. He also represents the attacking signing Howe has been looking for in this window.
As for Everton, they are reportedly receiving the whole £40 million in one payment. It’s a good deal for the Toffees, who may now look to invest in a new attacker before the window shuts.
