Everton: Transfer insider makes Anthony Gordon claim

It was reported earlier this week by Sky Sports News that Tottenham Hotspur were not only interested in Richarlison but also wanted Anthony Gordon, and an update has now emerged on the potential transfer this summer.

What’s the latest?

Journalist Dean Jones has given his verdict on the rumoured Spurs move for the boyhood Everton player.

The transfer insider told GIVEMESPORT: “Everton have had so many problems over the last couple of seasons, especially with the relationship between the club and the fanbase.

“So, if they were to get rid of Anthony Gordon there would be uproar, so I don’t believe they will sell Anthony Gordon unless they get absolutely ridiculous money for him.”

Supporters surely buzzing

With news of Richarlison’s imminent exit from Goodison Park, Everton supporters will surely be buzzing to hear that Gordon seems likely to stay at the club this summer.

The Toffees have had a disastrous 12 months in every sense. A relegation scrap amid the backdrop of financial troubles has caused uproar at the club and seen a number of protests from supporters outside the Goodison Park gates, so to lose their local hero who has made his way through the academy to become a key first-team player would be a nightmare.

Firstly, where did Everton finish in the Premier League?

Gordon gives Evertonians something to believe in during their bad times, and losing him could weaken their forward line even further when you consider how effective he has been in his position over the last 12 months.

Over 35 league appearances last season, the 21-year-old attacker scored four goals and delivered two assists, with an impressive shot on target rate of 43.2%. In addition, he was successful in 25.8% of his pressures and made 2.88 shot-creating chances on average per 90 minutes (FBRef).

Is Anthony Gordon priceless to Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Frank Lampard is a big fan of the youngster, who said of Gordon in an interview with Sky Sports; “He’s becoming more of a man, more of a leader with every game, with every day. His dedication and talent is huge.

Keeping the 21-year-old at Everton should be a massive priority for Moshiri this summer, as the owner already has a fragile relationship with many supporters, and selling the young talent could cause further discord at the club next season.
