Chelsea are reportedly deliberating whether to make a move for Everton’s Anthony Gordon before the winter transfer window snaps shut.
According to the Telegraph, the Stamford Bridge chain of command have once again shown interest in the attacker and could well attempt to sign him in the next week.
Gordon has long been admired by the Blues, intrigue that truly began when he hit some form towards the tail end of last season.
This purple patch has since faded away, with the 21-year-old struggling to make an impact at Goodison Park.
He has started just one of the last seven Premier League games, a period that’s plunged Everton deep into the relegation zone.
Could Chelsea announce Anthony Gordon soon?
Frank Lampard’s failure to restore the club’s fortunes earned him the sack yesterday, just 12-months after replacing Rafa Benitez.
Two former Chelsea managers have fallen by the wayside on Merseyside, with their old employers seemingly willing to take advantage of the sour situation.
Out of the torn-up Toffees, Gordon is one of the most likely to leave this month.
The Telegraph claim that Newcastle United have joined Chelsea in the hunt for the ‘special’ attacker, as described by another ex-Blue Antonio Conte.
Todd Boehly and his team are seemingly considering a bid, a deal that could involve sending the England Under-21 international straight back to Everton on loan.
Boehly might need to break the bank once again though, having seen several offers for the forward rejected last summer.
It could reportedly cost the Chelsea chief around £75m to land the lad from Liverpool.
Graham Potter will hardly be able to keep track who’s actually in his side if Gordon heads to the capital.
