Chelsea is considering a second approach for Anthony Gordon after Everton rejected their initial offer of £40 million, according to Fabrizio Romano.
This summer, a number of teams expressed interest in the 21-year-old winger, casting doubt on his future. However, after Frank Lampard’s team resisted Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United’s approaches, the most recent information suggests that they may soon come under additional pressure to keep him at Goodison Park.
According to CBS, the Toffees value Gordon at £50 million. However, Eddie Howe’s team is still interested in signing Gordon, and they might be willing to reenter the race if Chelsea has an accepted offer.
Despite early indications to the contrary, Ross Barkley’s reunion with Everton is not something Thomas Tuchel is willing to offer as part of an exchange deal. In 35 Premier League appearances last season, Gordon scored four goals.
