With the opening of the recent transfer window, the English clubs jumped at the opportunity of signing Anthony Gordon.
However, the clubs were not able to sign the Everton player as the club was not willing to let go of their player.
Everton is Open to Anthony Gordon Talks
Finally, Everton has announced that it is ready to talk about the potential move of Anthony Gordon to any club willing to pay a very high price.
The officials at Everton have announced that they have bumped the asking price for the 21-year-old English forward.
The team has predicted that any club wanting to sign the player would have to pay six times the salary of Anthony Gordon as a transfer fee.
Expected Demand for Anthony Gordon
Frank Lampard, the current manager at Everton has predicted that as the January transfer window opens, they may ask £75 million for the player. It would be the release clause for the player and any club wanting to sign him would need to pay it.
Chelsea is currently among the clubs eyeing the 21-year-old forward in the upcoming transfer window. Other clubs have also shared their interest for the player as he is among the rising stars from the English side.
Current Demand for Gordon
For the recent transfer window, Everton valued Anthony Gordon at £60 million. Everton revealed the asking price after Chelsea approach the club to acquire Gordon.
On the other hand, Todd Boehly, the chairman at Chelsea was not planning to go over his £40 million proposal.
Everton to Extend Anthony’s Contract
It may be a shocker for the clubs interested in Gordon that despite sharing a release clause condition, Lampard has other plans for the player.
The manager does not want to take chances of losing the player in case no club is ready to pay the release clause to acquire him.
Frank Lampard has confirmed that they will be extending his current contract with Everton. However, they are still in talks with the player to see where he stands and what he has in mind about extending his contract at the club.
Finding the Right Solution
For now, the club is trying to find a solution around the matter and see what they can achieve with Gordon.
Anthony had joined Everton back in 2017 and the 21-year-old forward is still playing at the club. Gordon had reportedly signed a 5-year contract with the club, which is to end by the end of 2022.
At Everton, the English player has made 55 appearances and he has scored 6 goals for the club.
