Newcastle United could go back in for Everton’s Anthony Gordon when the transfer window opens in January, The I’s Mark Douglas reports.
According to Douglas, Newcastle made an offer of just under £30million for Gordon during the summer window.
However, Everton had ‘no intention of entertaining bids’ for the youngster and instead hope to tie him down to a new contract on improved terms, as per The Athletic’s Patrick Boyland.
Newcastle brought in four new faces – Alexander Isak, Sven Botman, Matt Targett and Nick Pope – but didn’t manage to recruit a new wide player, and based on their interest in both Gordon and Jack Harrison, that could be on the agenda in January.
There will be scope for the Magpies to revisit some of the targets that they couldn’t land during the summer months.
Significantly, Gordon expressed a wish to leave Everton when he was made aware of interest from Chelsea.
He seems determined to move onto bigger and better things, but Newcastle will have to convince him of the credentials of their project.
A strong run between now and January, perhaps one that leaves the Magpies in European places, could go a long way to doing just that.
