Anthony Gordon: Newcastle United Reach Transfer Agreement with Everton for Winger
Newcastle United has struck a deal with Everton for the transfer of winger Anthony Gordon. The two clubs have reached an agreement for an initial fee of £40 million, with additional clauses that could take the total value of the transfer to £45 million. Talks are ongoing regarding the personal terms of the move as Gordon inches closer to joining Newcastle’s squad at St James’ Park.
Gordon, 21, had made it known to Everton that he wished to leave the club during this transfer window. After a three-day absence from training, Gordon visited Everton’s training ground on Friday to finalize his move to Newcastle. Despite reports of Gordon’s absence, Everton maintains that the striker has been training regularly.
Why is Gordon in Demand?
Newcastle sees Gordon as a versatile player who can fill multiple positions in their front line. Despite being approached by Newcastle during the summer transfer window, Gordon was also a top target for Chelsea. The London club held high-level talks with Everton and was willing to pay £60 million for his transfer.
Function of Gordon at Newcastle
Gordon’s speed, skill, and versatility make him an attractive option for Newcastle. He has been linked with a move away from Everton, with his time at the club showcasing his potential to become one of the Premier League’s top performers. With his ability to play as a winger or as a forward, Gordon is expected to bring a new dynamic to Newcastle’s attacking play.
