Tottenham want to sign Anthony Gordon with Richarlison from Everton - Sky Sports

Tottenham want to include Everton winger Anthony Gordon in a package with striker Richarlison, according to Sky Sports News’ Michael Bridge.

Spurs have maintained an interest in the Brazilian forward for most of the summer but have so far not come up with an offer that meets the Toffees’ valuation, believed to be north of £50million.

Despite this they are now hoping to take both the 25-year-old and his 21-year-old teammate this summer in order to boost their homegrown quota.

In a clip posted to Sky Sports News’ YouTube channel on Monday (27 June) reporter Bridge said: “We said this morning that Chelsea are interested in signing Richarlison, then I took a call about Spurs ramping up their interest this week.

“Then before going on set I took a call from my colleague Lyall Thomas to say that there’s a package deal being discussed between Richarlison and Anthony Gordon. That is a new name for Tottenham Hotspur.

“Tottenham Hotspur want younger English players. That’s a target this summer as well.”

No chance

The Toffees’ circumstances are somewhat reduced during the current window compared to where they often have been in recent years.

They are stuck needing to make a major sale in order to finance their incoming transfer business, and Richarlison continues to be the most likely source.

But they are surely in no mind to let Gordon go because he is in line to be a star of the future at Goodison Park.

For much of a fairly dreadful season at Everton he was the lone shining light, having broken out under Rafael Benitez as a committed attacking force who kept giving everything while all around him was crumbling.

After 14 combined Premier League appearances over the previous two campaigns and a loan spell at Preston he looked like a promising talent, but under the Spaniard and then his successor Frank Lampard the Merseyside local blossomed to the tune of 35 league games and 40 overall in 2021/22.

His goal against Manchester United on 9 April secured an invaluable three points as his side battled relegation, and while the likes of his fellow Spurs target Richarlison, and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, re-emerged to star as the club stayed up, he was arguably the stand-out player.

There is surely no chance he leaves the club this summer barring an astronomical bid coming in.
