Everton: David Ornstein drops encouraging transfer claim amidst Anthony Gordon links

David Ornstein has been speaking on the FIVE YouTube channel about how Everton’s financial situation is relatively healthy and means they don’t have to sell Anthony Gordon.

It has been well documented that Everton’s Anthony Gordon is a wanted man this transfer window with a £60 million bid reportedly in the offing before this window slams shut, although as things stand, he appears to be remaining an Everton player.

Chelsea are said to be weighing up a £60 million move for Gordon, something that has seen the winger tell Everton he wishes to leave and join the Champions League outfit, although, despite struggling with their finances over the last few windows, that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore, according to Ornstein.

This may be down to the fact they shipped out Richarlison for £60 million earlier this summer, which Ornstein believes has left Everton in a relatively strong position.

Should Everton sell Gordon for £60 million?





(9:30) “Everton sold Richarlison already in this transfer window, which means that their financial difficulties have been eased somewhat and the suggestion from Goodison Park is that financially they don’t have to sell him. If they are going to sell him at this late stage in the window, they would need a replacement.”

TIF Thoughts on Gordon’s situation…

Given that Gordon still has three years left to run on his contract, Everton are certainly in the driving seat when it comes to what they do and don’t reject in terms of transfer offers, although to reject a £60 million offer would just be madness given his inexperience in the top flight.

Which of these Serie A stars did the Toffees miss out on?

something that could perhaps sweeten the deal would be some loan players arriving from Chelsea at Goodison Park in the Gordon deal with Christian Pulisic said to be available this summer on a temporary basis and he could well help fill the void Gordon would leave, at least just for this season.

Also, if Everton were to get Pulisic in replace of Gordon that would surely see the Toffees come out the winners in the deal having received a large chunk of cash and also got an international footballer in return and one that is proven in front of goal with 27 goal involvements.
