Tottenham: Spurs ‘100 per cent’ still want Anthony Gordon

Tottenham: Spurs ‘100 per cent’ still want Anthony Gordon -Follow up

Tottenham Hotspur have a ‘definite interest’ in signing Everton winger Anthony Gordon this summer, according to journalist Ryan Taylor. 

The lowdown: Hot prospect

A product of the youth system at Everton, Gordon spent time on loan at Preston North End before enjoying a breakthrough 2021/22 campaign.

The 21-year-old England youth international was a key component in the Merseyside outfit’s survival last term and remains an integral part of Frank Lampard’s squad.

However, Newcastle, Chelsea and indeed Tottenham have all been credited with an interest this summer and one well-informed onlooker has suggested that a move could still be on the cards…

The latest: ‘Definite interest’

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Taylor – a journalist for the Daily Express – claimed that there is ‘definite interest’ from Spurs in the four-cap Under 21 starlet.

He said: “Anthony Gordon is one where there’s definite interest in him, 100 per cent. Obviously, Spurs looked to include him in the deal for Richarlison as a double package, but I think the problem for Tottenham at the moment is Chelsea are willing to pay big, big money that I don’t think Tottenham will match.”

The verdict: Worth a bid

Despite strengthening the frontline with the arrivals of Richarlison and previously Dejan Kulusevski, links persist with the likes of Ruslan Malinovskyi, Hakim Zieych and of course, Gordon himself, suggesting there is a desire to add one more option to Antonio Conte’s squad.

Any potential arrival could also be offset by the likely loan exit of Bryan Gil as the young Spaniard heads out in search of further development.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Last season, Gordon scored four times and provided three assists in 40 appearances across all competitions for a struggling Everton side, earning a 6.89 average SofaScore rating whilst winning 4.9 duels, completing 1.1 successful dribbles and making 1.0 key pass on average per Premier League outing.

Described as a ‘fearless’ player by Alan Shearer, the Liverpudlian’s versatility, direct running style and never say die attitude would all be welcomed into the Lilywhites’ ranks and as such, Fabio Paratici should be keeping at least a close eye on the situation.
