Chelsea reportedly remain interested in Everton’s Anthony Gordon.

According to, the Stamford Bridge chiefs haven’t completely concluded their chase of the young forward.

Gordon was subject to several bids made by the Blues in the summer, but his employers at Goodison Park did not budge for their Premier League rival.

Todd Boehly apparently had an initial £45m proposal for the England Under-21 international rejected in August.

Boehly came again with even bigger bucks, pushing £60m towards the Toffees for their youthful attacker.

Again, Frank Lampard’s bosses turned down the chance to earn a tidy profit on a player who came through the youth system.

It demonstrates how much Gordon is rated by Lampard, who called him ‘very good’ earlier in the season.

Equally, it proves how much Boehly and his team appreciate the Evertonian that they were seemingly willing to pay so much.

If they were to reignite their pursuit of Gordon, it could cost them even more than their original offers.

The Sun claim Everton may have to bump up his release clause to a whopping £75m in order to ward off January interest.

For all his qualities, would it be worthwhile for Chelsea to make Gordon their second-most expensive signing ever?

We are not quite sure.
