Tottenham may yet pull off a masterstroke by signing £18M rated winger from rivals – opinion

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Everton winger Anthony Gordon this summer.

The 21-year-old burst onto the first-team scene at Goodison Park last season and he was instrumental to their Premier League survival.

The young winger produced impressive performances during the second half of the season to help the Toffees beat the drop to the Championship.

Gordon scored four goals and picked up three assists across all competitions and he could prove to be a useful long-term addition to the Tottenham attack.

The likes of Lucas Mora and Steven Bergwijn have been linked with moves away from the London club and Conte might need to dip into the transfer market for another attacker if both players end up leaving this summer.

Gordon has the potential to develop into a quality player and Spurs must make the most of Everton’s financial troubles and snap him up this summer.

Having said that, the young winger is a fan favourite at Goodison Park and Everton might not risk the wrath of their fanbase by selling him at this stage of his career.

Furthermore, the 21-year-old will probably be looking for regular first-team football which might be hard to come by at Tottenham, especially with the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-MIn and Richarlison ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, stranger things have happened in the transfer market and Tottenham are certainly an attractive project after the top-four finish last season.

Gordon could get to experience Champions League football with the London club if he joins this summer and he would also get to work with a world-class coach like Antonio Conte who could help him fulfil his tremendous potential.

The 21-year-old can operate on either flank and his versatility could be an added bonus for Spurs.

Gordon played as a right-sided winger for Everton in 22 games last season and he was deployed as a left-sided winger in 15 outings.

There is no doubt that he could add pace, goals and creativity from the wide areas.

Tottenham will be hoping to do well in multiple competitions next season and they will need squad depth in order for that to happen.

It remains to be seen whether the Londoners decide to come forward with an offer for the 21-year-old Everton winger in the coming weeks now.

Everton have now posted a loss of more than £100 million for the third successive year and there have been rumours that they could be held in breach of Premier League profit and sustainability rules.

The Toffees could be under pressure to sell multiple players this summer and although the departure of Richarlison will have boosted their finances, an exit for Gordon cannot be ruled out just yet.

This is a golden opportunity for Tottenham to swoop in and make the most of Everton’s problems.  If Conte manages to harness the 21-year-old’s raw potential, the move could look like a masterstroke in the long run.

The player is currently valued at £18 million by Transfermarkt. Gordon’s value is going to soar if he continues to perform at a high level and this summer could be Tottenham’s only chance of snapping him up on a bargain.

I suspect Levy has some deal going with Everton on this – which is why we over paid for Richarlison. Not sure what exactly but wouldn’t surprise me if Gordon ends up at Spurs this window.
