Newcastle United would need to offer £40million to Everton to land winger Anthony Gordon.

Gordon enjoyed an impressive campaign last season, contributing six goals in 35 Premier League appearances. His efforts helped the Toffees narrowly avoid relegation to the Championship, as they finished 16th and just four points above the bottom three. Now Gordon could be ready to walk away from Goodison Park, with Newcastle apparently keen.

According journalist Alan NixonNewcastle need to make an offer of around £40million for Everton to accept a deal.

Newcastle are believed to be ready to make an offer of around £25m plus add-ons, but that won’t be enough.

It’s unclear how much more Newcastle are ready to offer. However, they are determined not to overpay as the club understands they don’t have unlimited funds to spend this summer.

Newcastle have already signed Sven Botman, Nick Pope and Matt Targett this summer. These three deals have already set the club back £60million.

While the Magpies are expected to make more signings, especially in the attacking department, they are hoping to stretch the budget on plenty of signings.

As a result, this reported price tag attached to Gordon may be too high.

Everton hope to keep Anthony Gordon

The £40m price tag was set for a reason by Everton.

In what has been a miserable campaign, Gordon has been one of the club’s few shining sparks.

His pace and confidence on the ball make him a tricky competitor for any opposition. And with Everton hoping for a more promising campaign, it’s important to keep hold of players like Gordon.

The club have landed James Tarkowski for free this summer so far. However, they haven’t made any improvements to the front line yet.

The club only managed 43 league goals last term which need to be improved for the next campaign.

However, even at this price, it can be difficult to keep hold of the 21-year-old. While Lampard has already told the media that Gordon is going nowhere, other clubs such as Tottenham have also been linked with a move.
