Chelsea 'guaranteed' to return for £60m man in the future

‘You can guarantee’: Chelsea will be back for £60m man who is not set to sign new contract – journalist

Journalist Paul Brown has claimed to GiveMeSport that Chelsea will return in an attempt to sign Anthony Gordon in a future transfer window.

The Blues established the Everton man as one of their main targets in the final weeks of the transfer window, well after the season had got underway.

Despite a reported number of late bids, the Blues were unable to pry the winger away from the Toffees, who were reportedly holding out for around £60m.

The club ended up strengthening their attack late in the window with the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on deadline day, adding to the earlier addition of Raheem Sterling.

However, Brown has claimed that the Blues are likely to return for the 21-year-old in the future, with them in the knowledge that he is not yet close to committing his future to Everton.

Chelsea to return for Gordon

He said: “I think it’s up to Everton to change his mind. Otherwise, they’re going to be in the same situation they were with him come January.

“It may be that the interest from those two clubs has waned a bit by then. We’ll see.

“But, if he has a brilliant few months, you can guarantee that Spurs, Chelsea and possibly other teams will be sniffing around because they know from his advisors that Gordon is not about to sign a new long-term deal tomorrow with Everton.”

While Gordon has proven this season that he can contribute on a regular basis, it is likely the Blues will need to look to a higher quality attacking player if they are to maintain their place near the top of the table.

With rumours that they are to return with a bid for AC Milan’s Rafael Leao, he far more suits the profile of attacking talent Chelsea need.
