Chelsea still eyeing Gordon and hold an interest in Onana

| 23/01/2023 13comments  |  Jump to last

Chelsea could yet come in with another for bid for Anthony Gordon before the transfer deadline and are now said to also be looking at Amadou Onana.

Gordon was the subject of two offers from Stamford Bridge last summer, the highest being a reported £42m, but both were rejected by the Toffees who were reluctant to sell another highly-regarded player after Richarlison transferred to Tottenham.

The Liverpool-born winger has been out of form at Everton but due to his age, nationality and potential ceiling, he remains on the shopping list of certain clubs, including Newcastle United who were linked with him last week.

With Everton struggling to bring players in this window because of a tight budget, they may be more willing to part with Gordon this month but are likely to resist all approaches for Onana.

The Belgian international only arrived last August and is one of the most important members of the current first team but Matt Law of The Telegraph is reporting that Chelsea could offer to buy both he and Gordon before the 31 January deadline and loan them back to Goodison Park until the summer.

They'll probably be off once we go down anyway. The buzzards are circling.

No, buy them and give us Ziyech and a player in their youth squad worth a gamble.

70 million and you can have them. Quality defensive midfielder and a forward.

Ziyech is not much better than we already have, he annoyed me to high heaven for Morocco in the World Cup, Selling any player and then having them return on loan won't work and particularly the stick they'd get off the fans. it would hardly be motivating for any player, and we need everybody in the squad to be up for a battle in the next few months.

Tell them to sod off, a decent manager can get these boys playing again.

They can have Gordon. I think we need Onana.

You know this story is bollcoks on the basis that it says they are going to buy them both then loan them back to Everton as clubs aren’t allowed to loan 2 players from the same parent club

Good point, Chris, plus we still have Coady on loan, and you can only loan 2 players from this country. The usual crock of shit from the crock of shit media!

Onana is a straight no from me, Gordon I'd consider so long as we got good money.

McNeil cos us in excess of £20M, Gordon has to be worth more than that!

The word ‘could’ is doing some heavy lifting here. Why would any club, even the richest, pay substantial fees now for players they will be able pick up at a bargain price in our summer fire sale?

If there is any truth in it I'd be accepting their cash offer providing they throw in Loftus-Cheek and a striker (was it Broja we were supposed to be interested in?) on top, not just on loan.

I have long been surprised that Matt Law continues to be employed by theTelegraph. His football “news” reporting is consistently unreliable and he would be far better placed at one of the comic-level tabloids.

Reports that Arsenal are interested in Onana at £50 million.
