Newcastle have entered talks for Everton attacker Anthony Gordon according to Craig Hope in The Mail. The Magpies are also engaged in discussions with at least two European clubs over unnamed targets.
The noise around Gordon has intensified in recent days. The dismissal of manager Frank Lampard seems to have spurred the Magpies into action. The 21-year-old is now seemingly the primary target this window.
Hope cites sources that state an offer of £25m plus £15m in add-ons could clinch an agreement with the cash-starved Toffees. That is significantly less than the £60m price tag Everton set in the summer.
Chelsea are also interested despite adding wide attackers Mykhaylo Mudryk and Noni Madueke in the past week. The Blues are in a transfer frenzy this month as UEFA are set to tighten FFP regulations in the summer.
Eddie Howe has expressed his desire for additions this month though admitted there are no guarantees. He is reportedly after a versatile forward, a midfielder, and a young right-back. The mystery targets in Europe could fulfill those needs.
The Shields Gazette is reporting that Newcastle have been knocked back in a bid for summer target Harrison Ashby. The right-back has just 6 months left on his contract with West Ham rejecting whatever offer Newcastle put forth.

Ive seen that many `worldys` fail in the PL that it`s just not a given that any top name in football will be a success in the toughest lge in the world.
80M for Mudryk could well be proven to be money well spent, but he could also be one of the most expensive flops in PL history, time will tell.

Everton need to sell. Lad doesn’t want to stay.
We could drive a very hard bargain. Still baffled that he is what we need.
We don’t buy they get relegated in a few months he’s worth even less…
Odd link. Average player
