Tottenham consider fresh January approach for Everton star

Antonio Conte and co. have set their sights on reinforcements out wide this winter


The transfer team at Tottenham Hotspur are giving serious consideration to a fresh approach for a key member of the attacking ranks at Premier League rivals Everton, according to reports.

The player in the sights of the Lilywhites? Anthony Gordon.

Wide-man Gordon, of course, saw his name take its place front and centre in the media headlines throughout the summer.

This came as two of the English top-flight’s clubs - namely Spurs and London rivals Chelsea - were tipped to land the Everton talent

In the end, however, those in a position of power at Goodison Park stood form, despite a number of big-money offers by way of Chelsea.

Gordon, in turn, has since gone on to endure something of a hit-and-miss campaign to date, notching three goals across 13 league appearances.

The 21-year-old’s inconsistencies, though, do not appear to have yet done enough to put an end to the interest of Antonio Conte and those at Tottenham.

Instead, as per a report from Jack Rosser of The Sun, the north Londoners are now weighing up a renewed assault on Everton in January.

Conte is understood to have been left concerned by the creative dearth suffered by his side in the wake of Dejan Kulusevski’s injury.

In turn, Gordon has been identified as a potential mid-season solution, and rotation option for years to come.

Any successful move on Tottenham’s part, though, will not come cheap.

This comes with Frank Lampard desperate to hold onto his young winger, with the transfer chiefs on Merseyside therefore ready to demand a fee similar to that secured for Richarilson during the summer - £60 million.
