Spurs continue to monitor Gordon situation

Tottenham Hotspur will continue to monitor the situation with Everton winger Anthony Gordon ahead of the January transfer window, football.london understands.

Spurs explored a potential double deal for both Richarlison and Gordon during the last summer transfer window but were only able to prise away the Brazilian in a move that could eventually be worth £60m with add-ons. Chelsea also looked at signing the England U21 international but in the end a move never materialised for the Toffees’ academy product.

Since then, versatile 21-year-old has continued to develop at Everton and has scored more than a quarter of his team’s goals in the Premier League this season, with three of their 11 goals in the competition. He has started all but four of their 15 games so far with Frank Lampard’s side sitting 17th in the table and only four points above bottom side Wolves. The young attacker scored the winning penalty against former Spurs goalkeeper Joe Hart in a shoot-out this weekend as Everton overcame Celtic on tour in Australia in the Sydney Super Cup.

Gordon still has three years left on his contract with the Toffees and his value has remained steady with suggestions in the summer that Everton would only hold out for a similar price tag to the one that saw Richarlison make the switch to Spurs. Any move for Gordon will be far more difficult in the January transfer window rather than next summer but football.london understands Tottenham will continue to monitor his situation in case an opportunity arises.
