Transfer insider Dean Jones has issued an Everton transfer claim that will interest supporters…
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he noted the interest Anthony Gordon has generated over the summer and how a move away from Goodison Park might be received by the Toffees faithful.
He claimed: “Gordon isn’t really someone that Everton can afford to let go at any cost at the moment. They can’t afford upsetting their fanbase any more than they already have in recent times, so I personally don’t think that transfer will come too much now.”
Earlier in the summer, he issued the statement: “He gives everything and is going nowhere. He is our player and we want to build with him.”
The Merseyside-born “beast” has a keen affiliation with Evertonians, which would make his departure all the more angering for them should he leave.
However, it is his incredible work rate that is what has truly endeared him to Lampard and their fans.
In a time when the Toffees needed a star, this “electric” talent emerged with lightning speed and a wonderful work ethic.
Evertonians do not ask for much, but hard-working players throughout the years have always earned their respect and unrivalled backing.
The potential exit of Gordon from Goodison will give flashbacks to the Wayne Rooney exit back in 2004, as a promising young scouser leaves before he realises his potential at the club.
Lampard has already issued his thoughts on the matter, but what the £2.5k-per-week star means to the fans is worth far more than what could offer on the pitch. He cannot be allowed to leave.
