Everton insist Anthony Gordon is not for sale amid £40m interest from Chelsea


Everton insist Anthony Gordon is not for sale despite interest from Chelsea.

The winger has emerged as a £40m target for Thomas Tuchel but Frank Lampard is keen to build his side around the 21-year-old.

Everton are yet to receive an offer for Gordon but Lampard’s stance that he doesn’t want to let him go is no ploy to negotiate the price up.

Tuchel is keen to ramp up his attack before the transfer window closes, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also on the radar, but Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku have already left Stamford Bridge, with Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi set to follow.

Everton sold Richarlison to Tottenham for £50million this summer and with Dominic Calvert-Lewin injured, Gordon has started the season as a false nine while Lampard is looking to sign a new striker.

Gordon, who has scored four goals in 60 appearances for the club, was rewarded with the No10 shirt for his fine form last season but his progress has yet to be reflected in a new contract, meaning he is one of the lowest paid is player.

The attacker played the full game with a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa at the weekend, while Everton actually lost to Chelsea on the opening weekend.

He scored his last Premier League goal in April in a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Goodison Park as the Toffees escaped in the post-season.

Chelsea’s own summer signings already include Raheem Sterling in a £47.5million deal to strengthen the attacking line, while striker Armando Broja is also back in the squad after returning from a loan spell at Southampton.
