Everton: Tony Scott would be happy to see Anthony Gordon sold

|

Tony Scott has revealed the two reasons he’d be happy for Everton to sell Anthony Gordon while speaking on the All Together Now podcast.

It has been well-documented since Sunday night that Everton’s Gordon was attracting interest and that a bid in the region of £45m had been lodged, although the Toffees were seemingly quick to knock that back.

That doesn’t appear to have put off Chelsea, however, who are said to be coming back at Everton with an improved £50m bid for Gordon, who’s only started 32 Premier League games and scored four goals.

Scott believes that £50m is too good to turn down for Gordon and now trusts Everton to sufficiently replace the winger.

He said: “Now, judging from previous managers, I would be absolutely petrified of selling Anthony Gordon for £40m or £50m on the basis of how we’ve recruited over the past four or five years.

Should Everton sell Gordon for £50 million?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

“This summer, my idea’s changed completely because of the type of characters we’ve brought in – Tarkowski, Coady, Onana – these types of players we’ve brought in.

“I’m quite happy with Anthony Gordon being sold, a) if the price is right, and b) because I’m starting to regain the trust in the recruitment.”

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

It quite simply is ludicrous money that Chelsea are reportedly willing to pay for Gordon, as it’s all based on potential and the player he might turn into. Right now, a record of six goal involvements in 51 Premier League appearances is nowhere near worthy of a £50m bid, in our view.

While the Everton board may be reluctant to lose one of their own in case another Wayne Rooney scenario occurs and he comes back to bite them, they should just remind themselves of the likes of Ross Barkley and Jack Rodwell, who both left early in their careers without any regret from the Toffees’ perspective.

    It is sending out the wrong message , if Everton are to REALLY compete again with the top four, we need to keep all our talented players ,and build around them, Chelsea are seemingly determined but we must be and say NO not for safe at ANY price
