Everton Soften Stance On Gordon With Newcastle Confident Of Deal

Everton are expected to lessen their demands for attacker Anthony Gordon in the wake of his training strike. The 21-year-old has held out of the last three days of training to try and force a move to Newcastle according to recent reports.

The Telegraph is now claiming that Everton are resigned to losing their Academy product and will consider offers in the £40m range which is a drastic drop from the £60m they were commanding. Newcastle are believed to be willing to offer close to Everton’s reduced valuation.

Fabrizio Romano reported on Thursday that Gordon had reached an agreement on personal terms with Newcastle. The Liverpool-born winger emerged last week as Eddie Howe’s top target for this window after brief interest over the summer. They remain confident an agreement will be reached soon.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea reignite their interest in Gordon. The club made a concerted effort to land the England U21 international over the summer with Everton rejecting even ludicrous offers from the Blues.

There are some reports surfacing that Chelsea may now move for Gordon. Tottenham are also said to be circling. However, it appears Newcastle could lead the chase as his preferred destination.

Everton have lined up former Stoke and West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic, currently at Bologna, to replace Gordon. They will also use some of the funds to support whoever they appoint as Frank Lampard’s successor.

    Apparently, no one has yet made an offer for Frenesda, according his current club Rio Valladolid. Everyone playing games and hard ball, but no offers – weird. 🙂

    Reached an agreement on terms? I thought the club had to give permission first. If not couldn’t Everton do us for poaching, which is what we have done.

    Simon, I think that guy’s famous for being a knob who mostly knows nowt. While there’s always a chance it’s genuine, I wouldn’t draw any conclusions from any claims he makes.

    I think it was Jail, who warned me off him a few years back. 🙂

    Catchy, not entirely sure how it works, but I think you can get a clubs permission to talk to a player and/or his representatives to see if you suit each other prior to completing with the selling club. You might need to at least have an offer on the table 1st. There’s a lot of cases of players terms being “agreed” prior to completing deal between clubs. It’s only poaching if you directly contact the player without the knowledge of their current club.

    I don’t think we’d do that.

    No photos on the internet of Gordon in the Toon. If he had been photographed in the Toon it would have been a scoop and hit the headlines.
    Obviously not true therefore.

    Upgrade on Fraser, allows us to let him leave in this window. U21 and English so good for European football and a long term plan. Would rather see diaby in black and white and hope we don’t lose ASM… Thought we’d be concentrating on a player to replace wood or cover for Bruno… Surprised were in for a winger when we have 6 already

    If Gordon signs I wonder how that leaves Maddison or Tielemans feeling knowing they were in the frame at onetime.Maybe one of them still is and might also be signed, if not now in the summer.
    However getting the right players now helps the squad maintain and develop its potential , no point in slipping backwards when we’re on the up.

    Plenty of discreet locations between Merseyside and Tyneside to have a coffee and chat with Gordon, get his hair cut, loose the ear muffs and get a small family saloon instead of his urban tractor.
    Then bring him home to meet the parents at SJP

    Gordon isn’t the answer for what we need, especially for the money.

    We have ASM and almiron.

    Midfield should be the priority, whatever the cost.

    Maddison should be our number one target no matte how much it costs us, he would make a huge difference.

    If it was either/or I’d much prefer Maddison tbh. I haven’t seen loads of Gordon but when have I thought he’s looked dangerous, but his stats are horrific, and perhaps attitude questionable but probs unfair to judge. If they are holding out for £60m and we’re after a lwf I’d also rather bid that for diaby first and see if that tests the resolve. If he’s eddies man though will trust in that, just not convinced

    I think we were better last season with jo and Bruno cm so signing a wide player allows jo to go back, I’d still love Maddison though. I’ll probably get shot for this but I also think we miss the shelvey of last season, some games he just completely controls

    Must have rejected Everton for Forest Green Rovers
    No one in their right mind will take the Everton job, a poisoned chalice.

    Former Newcastle United striker Duncan Ferguson has been named the new manager of Forest Green Rovers. The 51-year-old, who spent two years on Tyneside in the late 90s, is undertaking his first full-time role as a first-team manager.

    Just feels like Maddison is where we should be at. Seems like the right fit and with a level of experience we can use.
    A battle hardened pro in they style of Trippier.
    Would be a great fit and gives us the extra bite in midfield and more goals than Longstaff or Willock are currently providing

    Bet the Everton fans are relishing the prospect of Ralphy as Manager.

    Everton’s talks with Argentine Marcelo Bielsa about being their new manager have reached an impasse with former Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl being considered

    Window slamming shut in 5 days and the only player we have been linked with is a mediocre Everton reject and a couple of youngsters.

    If they are holding out and keeping a few signings for deadline day we are doing it extremely well.

    However new signings are a must as I have said multiple times if one or two key players get injured we will drop down the league as we wont pick up points, tough to beat but don’t score many goals as of late.

    We need Maddison. Now. not in the summer when some other club comes in for him and snaps him up, like paqueta.

    Owners need to show more ambition and splash the huge amounts of cash we have on new players. simple. we cant wait.

    We don’t need anyone now, have you seen our position and what we stand to win?

    The market looks to be dry for everyone at the moment, unless you want to spend 90m on Mudryk

    We’re keeping our powder dry, and moving at the very end of the window like King Eddie has already said

    We’ll get one in to replace Wood before the end of the season, even if it’s a loan till the Summer

    Can’t it close quietly for once? It’s not even a real window

    They simply don’t want him.

    Hope this is massive decoy and we sign a better player.

    Really he’s not that good.

    If we have made an offer, in this instance it shouldn’t be improved.

    Could become good. But today? Nowt special.

    If he asks for a transfer he waves the signing on fee levey.

    Doubt that’d happen.

    So he’s unhappy. But not that put out being at Everton to ask for one?

    Bit like mangers who won’t resign (Brucey anyone), they want their coin…

    TMA – the transfer window “slamming shut” bugs me in the same way that the media said we beat “10 man Southampton”. It’s just silly media speak.
