An update has emerged on Tottenham Hotspur and their interest in signing Anthony Gordon in the summer transfer window…
Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas has revealed that Fabio Paratici is now plotting to sign the England U21 international from Everton, alongside one of his teammates.
Spurs are looking to add to their attacking options this summer and Thomas has confirmed that they are set to make an offer to snap the pair up ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
He tweeted: “Exclusive: are targeting a package deal for both Richarlison AND Anthony Gordon. bracing themselves for a combined bid.”
By signing the Englishman from the Toffees, Paratici could land Tottenham their next Heung-Min Son as he is a promising left-winger with the potential to be a big player in the future.
In the Premier League last season, Gordon produced four goals and two assists in 25 starts – creating four ‘big chances’ and providing 35 key passes in total. Whilst these are not outstanding statistics, they are eye-catching for a player in his first full season of top-flight football playing for a team battling against relegation to the Championship.
Daily Express reporter Charlie Gordon has attempted to convince supporters that the winger would be a good addition to Antonio Conte’s squad, tweeting: “Tottenham fans who are underwhelmed at links to Anthony Gordon have clearly never seen the guy play. He’ll have a top career. Great energy, tenacity, pace, crossing. Would be a bitter pill to swallow for Everton if forced to let him go…”
Like Son, Gordon is a right-footed left-winger who can go down the line or cut inside onto his stronger foot and played a big role in keeping his team in the division with his six goal contributions.
He only turned 21 in February and has plenty of time left on his hands to develop and improve as a player as he gains more experience at the top level. Playing and training alongside a star as good as the South Korean, who scored 23 goals in the league last term, will surely only help his development.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man can take Gordon under his wing and help him to grow into becoming his replacement on the left flank in the future. At the age of 29, Son is heading into the latter stages of his career and the Everton gem could come in to be his natural successor in a few years.
