Chelsea are discussing internally of a new proposal for Anthony Gordon as opening bid worth £40 million has been rejected by Everton on Sunday.
According to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea could try to include players in the deal as Frank Lampard wanted more than one Chelsea player this summer.
Carlo Ancelotti had given Gordon a chance in Everton’s first team before the forward was loaned out to Preston.
But it was under Rafael Benitez last season when the England national under-21 star became a regular in Everton’s starting line-up with Frank Lampard continuing to show faith in the winger. He announced himself back in January when he scored both goals for Everton in a 3-2 defeat to Brighton – his first goals in the Premier League.
With Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury and Richarlison leaving, Lampard has moved Gordon through the middle to play as Everton’s central striker. He’s yet to find the net in the opening two games but has shown promise in games against Chelsea and Aston Villa.
