Everton: Billy Gilmour ‘discussed’ in potential Anthony Gordon swap deal

Everton: Billy Gilmour ‘discussed’ in potential Anthony Gordon swap deal -Everton News

Billy Gilmour has reportedly been ‘discussed’ in a potential swap deal between Everton and Chelsea involving Anthony Gordon.

The Lowdown: Chelsea pushing

According to Football Insider, Chelsea are ready to increase their offer for Gordon to £50m, after the Merseyside club previously rejected a bid of £40m for the Englishman.

Frank Lampard’s team are also thought to be interested in the likes of Armando Broja and Ross Barkley, so some form of cash-plus-player swap deal could well be on the cards.

The Latest: Gilmour ‘discussed’

When asked by a Toffees supporter on Twitter whether Chelsea’s Gilmour would be the most likely player to be included in a potential swap deal for Gordon, journalist Fraser Fletcher revealed that he has been ‘discussed’, adding that Lampard is a ‘huge fan’ of his:

“He’s been discussed. Frank Lampard is a huge fan and it’s well known he would like him.”

The Verdict: Exciting talent

At just 21 years of age, having already won the UEFA Champions League and being capped 15 times for the Scotland national team, Gilmour is certainly an exciting talent.

Sky Sports pundit and fellow Scotsman Graeme Souness thinks that he is a ‘fabulous‘ player, and having given him his senior debut at the tender age of 18, it is no surprise that Lampard rates him so highly as well.

Of course, it would be a blow to lose Gordon to Chelsea, but if the Blues can get Gilmour and potentially another one or two players out of the deal, it could turn out to be a smart piece of business.
