Everton ready to drop Gordon asking price in face of Newcastle bid

A fresh insight into the future of wantaway Everton star Anthony Gordon has been forthcoming late on Thursday night.

The subject of wide-man Gordon’s situation at Goodison Park has of course taken its place back at the forefront of the headlines over the course of the week to date.

This comes with the 21-year-old having taken matters firmly into his own hands, amid efforts to engineer a move away from Merseyside.

After seeing a transfer to Chelsea fall through during the summer, Gordon evidently has no intention of allowing the same to unfold this month, in the face of heavy interest by way of high-flying Newcastle United.

In turn, the talented attacker has refused to report for training on any of the last three days.

And such efforts on Gordon’s part, it would appear, are beginning to have the desired effect at Goodison Park.

As per a report from the reliable Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph, the powers that be at Everton are ready to drop their demands for Gordon before the transfer window slams shut next week.

An offer of £40 million, with add-ons included, could now be enough to entice the Blues into a sale.

This fee is understood to fall much closer to Newcastle’s valuation of Gordon, meaning a deal being struck before January is out is beginning to look increasingly likely.
