Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold claims Spurs still have eyes on Anthony Gordon

Tottenham Hotspur are continuing to monitor the situation of Everton winger Anthony Gordon this summer ahead of the final weeks of the window. 

This has been suggested by reliable Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold, who has been speaking on his YouTube channel to discuss Fabio Paratici’s plans ahead of the 1st September deadline.

It seems all things are going swimmingly in north London, with seven signings through the doors this summer and seven points from a possible nine in their opening three league games.

Spurs have already been linked with the 21-year-old this summer, with the Lilywhites believed to be eyeing a potential double-swoop for Gordon and Richarlison earlier in the window.

However, there has since been an interest coming from London rivals Chelsea, but Gold believes Spurs have not faded away in the race for the winger from Merseyside.

He said: “I understand that Spurs are still continuing to monitor the situation with Everton’s Anthony Gordon. Obviously reported that way, way, way back in the summer that they were looking to try and do a double deal for him and Richarlison if it was possible.

“I think it’ll be a tough one. From what I understand, they are still keeping an eye on the situation. Chelsea are probably the closest right now, think they had reportedly a £45m bid rejected.

“The thing with Gordon, it’s a tough one. From what I understood – and I’ve said this before, this isn’t me saying anything new – is that I understand that he would be interested in playing for Conte, interested obviously in playing in Champions League football, but he is very much an Everton boy.”

TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…

It is said Chelsea have seen an approach worth in the region of £40m batted away by the Toffees in recent weeks, so we do wonder whether this is something which will potentially diminish Spurs’ interest.

Should Spurs splash big money on Gordon?





Everton have had a difficult start to the new campaign and Gordon has also failed to get off the mark in an attacking sense, with no goal contributions in 270 minutes of Premier League action.

But there is certainly a risk in putting forward such a big sum of money for a player whose potential the club would be putting their trust in.

The Liverpudlian has become one of Frank Lampard’s bright sparks, however, he has not quite shown a consistent output over a season, and given he is unlikely to start for Spurs, it could prove difficult for him to develop without regular first-team football.
