Newcastle United: Everton ‘look ready to accept’ Anthony Gordon bid

Newcastle United: Everton ‘look ready to accept’ Anthony Gordon bid -Everton News

Journalist Jacque Talbot says Everton ‘look ready to accept’ Newcastle United‘s bid for Anthony Gordon, and personal terms are ‘not expected’ to be an issue.

The Lowdown: Bid made

Talbot reported on Tuesday night that Newcastle had made a bid worth £35m rising up to £50m for Gordon.

They have reportedly been in formal talks with Everton over a potential deal, and now it looks like they are stepping up their move with less than a week of the transfer window to go.

The Latest: Bid to be accepted?

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Talbot says that Everton now ‘look ready to accept’ the Magpies’ offer for Gordon, and personal terms are not thought to be a problem:

“Understand Everton look ready to accept Newcastle’s opening bid for 21-year-old Anthony Gordon and that personal terms are not expected to be a problem ahead of a move to the northeast.”

The Verdict: A lot of money…

While Gordon is no doubt a good player in his own right, with former Premier League striker Tony Cascarino hailing him as a ‘very special talent’ and a ‘fearless’ and ‘tenacious’ prospect, potentially paying £50m for the Englishman is still a big risk.

He has only managed to score seven goals and make three assists in his previous four seasons in the top flight including this one (Transfermarkt), while Miguel Almiron already has nine goals this season alone.

The numbers that Gordon is producing is simply not enough to warrant paying such a heavy transfer fee, but as it is the last week of the window, Eddie Howe’s side may feel like there are not any better options out there, and so they might have to bite the bullet on this one just to get it over the line.

Nonetheless, Gordon is still only 21, and so his work in the final third can be coached on to reach his full potential, but it is certainly an expensive outlay for someone who is likely to serve as no more than a rotation option with Almiron.
