Everton have dismissed Chelsea’s most recent offer for midfielder Anthony Gordon which 90min can affirm was worth £45m.
Thomas Tuchel is enthused about getting 21-year-old Gordon, who was a focusing light in a generally disappointing effort for Everton last season, yet saw an initial bid worth around £40m thumped back on Monday.
Sources have affirmed that Chelsea have gotten back with a second offer worth £45m, yet Everton have again scorned the Blues’ advances.
Everton have recently cautioned admirers like Tottenham and Newcastle that it would take a bid worth over £50m to persuade them to head out in different directions from Gordon and club authorities are perceived to be adhering to that asking cost.
Individual terms wouldn’t be an issue for Chelsea yet the Blues are presently considering their choices in front of a choice over a potential third offered.
Everton have recently enrolled an interest in various Chelsea players, helped by the presence of previous Blues manager Frank Lampard in the Goodison Park hole.
Among those to have provoked Lampard’s curiosity are Billy Gilmour, Conor Gallagher, Armando Broja, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi.
