Chelsea ‘considering reigniting interest in Everton’s Anthony Gordon’ after failed summer pursuit… and ‘could also bid for Amadou Onana’ in a DOUBLE swoop that may see both players head back to Merseyside on loan for rest of season

  • The Blues saw their interest in Gordon in the summer rebuffed by Everton
  • Gordon is expected to leave Everton this month with Newcastle also interested
  • Chelsea are said to be aware of Everton’s financial issues and could pounce 

Chelsea are considering reigniting their interest in Everton’s Anthony Gordon.

The Blues made several attempts to sign the 21-year-old in the summer but the Merseyside club held out and managed to hold onto their man.

According to The Telegraph, however, Chelsea are ready to continue their big spend in January and are eyeing up a double swoop for both Gordon and Amadou Onana, as crisis continues at Everton amid the sacking of Frank Lampard.

Gordon clashed with fans after Everton’s 2-1 defeat against Southampton last weekend and is expected to leave the club before next week’s transfer deadline.

A move to Chelsea could result in Gordon heading back to Everton on loan for the rest of the season, but Newcastle are also keeping tabs on the winger.

Hakim Ziyech could head the other way, but the Blues are said to be well aware of Everton’s financial issues, and could pounce to land Onana, who only joined Everton in the summer, too.

Everton are understood to be reluctant to sell Onana despite their issues, but a move could be done if Chelsea also loan the Senegal midfielder back to Merseyside.

Blues owener Todd Boehly is set to continue his investment in the Chelsea squad despite already spending well over £150million this winter.

The London club are currently 10th in the Premier League and are enduring a tough run under Graham Potter, but are keen to build for the future as they look to turn their fortunes around
