Chelsea prepare second bid for Everton forward Anthony Gordon
Chelsea are preparing a second bid to sign Everton forward Anthony Gordon, as per The Times.
Paul Joyce of The Times reported on 15 August that the Blues are ready to test Everton’s resolve for the youngster with another monster offer.
The Blues have had a bid in the region of £40million rejected, and as per Liverpool Echo, the Toffees have made it clear that the player is not for sale.
Gordon is a fantastic young talent. He emerged as a key player last season, and Frank Lampard will definitely want to keep him at the club.
Having sold Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur, it could send a wrong message to the fans if the club sanction the departure of one of their brightest young talents.
Having said that, every player has a price, and Gordon has a price too. If Chelsea come up with an offer of around £50m plus a structured deal, the Toffees could be tempted.
As per the report, the Toffees are interested in a host of Chelsea players including Billy Gilmour, Michy Batshuayi, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja.
The Blues could be willing to include some of the players as a part of the package deal. If Everton are offered the likes of Broja and Gallagher, they should take it.
Broja is an exciting young striker whose best years are ahead of him, while Gallagher proved last season that he can be a top-class midfielder in the Premier League.
In other Everton news, Derby County and Millwall are heavily interested in signing Everton young talent Tom Cannon.
