 “From Speaking to People” – Journalist Delivers behind-scenes Anthony Gordon Update at Everton

Key update emerges on Anthony Gordon’s Goodison future

Everton winger Anthony Gordon ‘wants to remain’ at the club ‘for as long as he possibly can’, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The 21-year-efforts old’s have been one of the few bright spots for the Toffees this season, as they have struggled to stay in the Premier League’s lower reaches.

What’s the most recent Gordon news?
Gordon made his first-team debut in December of last year, but this season has been his breakout year.

The England Under-21 international has three goals and three assists in 29 appearances in all competitions under former boss Rafa Benitez and his replacement Frank Lampard.

Gordon’s underlying numbers are as excellent, demonstrating his genuine potential.

According to FBref, during the last year, the hardworking forward has ranked in the 99th percentile for tackles, 97th for blocks, and 93rd for pressure among players in his position.

Meanwhile, according to WhoScored, his averages of 1.3 shots, 0.8 crucial passes, and 0.6 crosses per Premier League game in 2021/22 put him in the top five for each category when compared to his teammates.

It’s no surprise, therefore, that Gordon has featured in Everton’s last 23 top-flight fixtures either from the off or as a substitute.

What has Jones said about Gordon?

With the team teetering on the brink of relegation and the assets of Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, who has commercial links to the club, being blocked, some prominent players have been linked with a move elsewhere.

Gordon, on the other hand, is adamant on staying with his boyhood club for as long as it’s possible, according to Jones.

He told GiveMeSport: “From everything that I can gather from speaking to people, he wants to remain at that club for as long as he possibly can. And so, I’ll be very surprised if Everton tried to cash in on him, that’s not the route to go down right now.”

Who could Everton sell?

Richarlison is reportedly ‘in the running’ to replace Luis Suarez at Atletico Madrid when the Uruguay international departs in the summer, according to Spanish source Sport (via Sport Witness).

West Ham United are reportedly interested in fellow attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, according to The Sun, with Arsenal also reportedly interested in the 6 foot 2 ace, according to the Daily Star.

It’s unclear whether Everton will be able to maintain their finest players for next season, but their futures are likely to be determined by which division they play in.
