The Lowdown: Swap deal?
As per talkSPORT, the Goodison Park outfit have asked to include players in any deal that would take Gordon to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have offered £50m up front plus £10m in add-ons for the Englishman, who has told the Merseyside club that he wants to make the move to London.
The Latest: Phillips confirms
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Phillips has confirmed that Frank Lampard’s team have ‘asked’ for Broja and Gallagher, and ideally want both to be part of the deal that would see Gordon leave:
“It’s true that they have asked Chelsea for Broja and/or Conor Gallagher as part of the Gordon signing.
“They want both of those players and, for me, they would be big statement signings if they can get either of those.”
The Verdict: Great business
To get both Broja and Gallagher with or without a chunk of money for a player who wants to leave would be a great piece of business from the Toffees.
After signing Neal Maupay from Brighton and Hove Albion, adding another striker with Premier League experience in Broja would massively help cover for the injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, while Gallagher is a player who impressed so much while on loan at Crystal Palace last season, scoring eight goals and making five assists in total over all competitions from the middle of the park (Transfermarkt), subsequently winning their Player of the Season (POTS) award.
Nonetheless, both would help accommodate the loss of Gordon hugely, so the Blues should indeed be demanding both of them if they are to let him go.
