David Ornstein drops Everton transfer news

Everton have already lost Richarlison this summer so they are unlikely to be willing to part ways with another key player, and now a new update from a reliable source has emerged after interest in Anthony Gordon has increased.

What’s the latest?

According to The Athletic football correspondent David Ornstein, Everton are not interested in selling Gordon this summer.

Ornstein tweeted:

“Everton have no intention of selling Anthony Gordon amid demands from other PL clubs. Interest expressed in conversations but #EFC are unwilling to consider the 21-year-old’s exit. A new deal will likely be offered but not the outcome of rival admiration.

The update comes as Newcastle United have reportedly expressed interest in signing the player.

Fans will be delighted

There is no doubt that Everton supporters will be both delighted and relieved that the club are not interested in receiving offers for Gordon this summer, especially after Richarlison left the club to join Tottenham Hotspur last week.

The 21-year-old became a key player for the Toffees squad after breaking into the first team when Carlo Ancelotti gave the youngster his Premier League debut against West Ham United in January 2020. He is an Evertonian from childhood that makes the Goodison Park faithful even more protective of the future of their own young talent.

Despite a disappointing season for Everton which saw the team tangled in a relegation game at the bottom of the table, Gordon had been a consistent player scoring four goals, providing two assists and creating four big chances in 35 appearances.

The Everton winger had one key assist, 1.5 tackles and took 1.3 shots on average per game while winning the majority of his duels on the ground (53%).

Frank Lampard praised the young striker after his appointment as manager in January, saying Gordon is a ‘leader’ of the team in an interview with Sky Sports:

“He becomes more of a man, more of a leader with every game, every day. His dedication and talent are enormous.

Will Anthony Gordon stay at Everton?

That being said, it’s really important for Everton at this time to retain as many key players as possible to ensure they don’t end up worse off than the previous season and at greater risk of losing their top-flight status. .
