Tottenham: Paul Robinson makes Anthony Gordon claim

Tottenham: Paul Robinson makes Anthony Gordon claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper turned Sky Sports pundit Paul Robinson has made a claim involving Spurs and Anthony Gordon after Daniel Levy’s ‘meeting’ with his Everton counterpart Bill Kenwright.

The Lowdown: Levy spotted…

Last Tuesday, ex-BBC journalist Jon Sopel revealed that both Levy and Kenwright had dinner at Scott’s, having spotted them whilst being sat a table nearby.

As the pair held talks, potentially over the now-confirmed signing Richarlison at the time, their sit-down also came amid Tottenham’s strong links with Toffees winger Anthony Gordon.

According to reports, Spurs still hold a real interest in signing the 21-year-old, with The Mirror’s print edition (via Goodison News) having claimed very recently that Fabio Paratici is plotting a move for the player.

The Latest: Robinson makes ‘perfect’ claim…

Speaking to Football Insider, Robinson has made a claim involving Levy and Gordon as the Lilywhites eye a move to sign the youngster for Antonio Conte.

He explained that the England under-21 international is exactly the type of player that Levy ‘loves signing’ for the north Londoners and suspects that Gordon came up in conversation during the Spurs chief’s dinner with Kenwright.

Robinson stated:

“There was a meeting. Daniel Levy and Bill Kenwright seemingly had dinner and I suspect Gordon was a player who came up in conversation.

“He is the type of player that Daniel loves signing for Tottenham. A young, talented English player.

“It would be similar to the way he signed me, Michael Carrick, Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Kyle Walker.

“Gordon would be that type of player – exciting with lots of potential. He would be the perfect fit for Spurs.

“I suspect there would have been a conversation about Gordon and his future. I’m sure that move will be revisited in the coming years.”

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

The Verdict: Push ahead?

While the prospect of Tottenham signing another one of Everton’s key players is arguably an uphill battle, in an ideal universe, an exciting move for move would certainly be ‘perfect’ for Spurs, to use Robinson’s words.

Able to help balance out the club’s worrying homegrown quota, the 21-year-old also possesses huge potential and is already well versed in Premier League action, having made 49 top-flight appearances.

Gordon stands out as one to watch, with Boreham Wood manager Luke Garrard even calling him ‘frightening’ after their FA Cup clash against the Toffees earlier this year.

Indeed, Tottenham landing the youngster would be a real coup, although it perhaps seems unlikely at this point given that they’ve already raided Everton for Richarlison.
