Tottenham: Club said to be monitoring Everton’s Anthony Gordon

Tottenham: Club said to be monitoring Everton’s Anthony Gordon -Premier League News

Tottenham will be monitoring winger Anthony Gordon amid his ongoing contract talks, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

THE LOWDOWN: SUMMER REDEMPTION

Everton’s versatile 21-year-old was thought to be a target for Spurs throughout the summer transfer window, with O’Rourke believing that the alleged interest from the north London side still exists.

A report from The Sun recently claimed that Everton and Gordon were in discussions over a new contract, with negotiations thought to have stalled between the two parties.

It is said that Gordon is looking for a £100,000-a-week deal in order to sign on the dotted line as a result of the £60m price tag that was placed over him in the window just gone.

THE LATEST: NOT OVER YET

As a result of the ongoing reports that surround Gordon, journalist O’Rourke has chimed in with an update that will give hope to Spurs supporters who want to see the star ply his trade at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The journalist does not believe that the likes of Tottenham, Chelsea or Newcastle United have given up on a potential deal for the star.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke said: “Those clubs, I’m sure they will be monitoring Gordon’s contract talks right now, and I’m sure Everton would love to sort out his contract and secure his long-term future at Goodison Park.”

THE VERDICT: A £60M RISK

At the age of 21, Gordon is still learning his craft, with regular minutes vital in aiding progression if he is to reach his potential.

From a Spurs point of view, the acquisition of Gordon would surely result in a departure – whether that be Lucas Moura or Bryan Gil, who have struggled for minutes in competition with Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski.

Even with a Spurs departure, game time would be hard to come by when you look at the competition in the Tottenham ranks.

Gordon’s versatility would of course be appealing to boss Antonio Conte, but a £60m move in the short term may prove to be too much of a risk for both parties.
