Report: PL club think Chelsea are going to bid for their 'super talent', they really don't want to sell him

Everton reportedly expect another bid from Chelsea this summer for Anthony Gordon.

According to the Daily Mail, Merseyside club Everton are still “keen” to keep Gordon at Goodison Park.

The report claims they’re ready for Premier League rivals Chelsea to submit another offer to sign him, though.

Gordon, who’s a product of Everton’s academy, is a very exciting young attacker.

The 21-year-old winger is a nailed-on starter in the Toffees line-up right now, so it’s completely understandable that Frank Lampard’s side want him to stay this season.

He’s reportedly a player that Chelsea are prepared to pay as much as £60million to get.

Everton expect Gordon bid from Chelsea

It sounds like there’s still more drama to unfold in the final few days of the summer transfer window.

With less than a week to go in the window, Chelsea are still linked with bringing numerous individuals to Stamford Bridge.

Everton boss Lampard was asked directly on Friday about the Blues interest in Gordon, which he answered fairly openly:

“No it [a bid] hasn’t come in. He’s our player, he remains so, he’s in the squad for tomorrow. He’s a huge player for us. They haven’t bid £60m, let’s not talk about a number that’s not there,” Lampard said.

Described as a “super talent” by Danny Murphy earlier this year, Gordon has shown enough potential to drive up a mammoth price tag on his head.

However, the youngster will need to start becoming far more prolific in the final third to justify the kind of money that’s being spoken about around his name.

For Chelsea, they need attackers to join that can push double figures for goals and assists.

There’s no doubt that Thomas Tuchel’s side need to improve the productivity in the final third to get themselves anywhere near a league title race.
