Spurs continue to monitor Everton starlet situation

Tottenham Hotspur will continue to monitor the situation with Everton winger Anthony Gordon ahead of the January transfer window, as per Football London.


The 21-year-old has continued to develop at Everton and has scored more than a quarter of his team’s goals in the Premier League this season, with three of their 11 goals in the competition. He has started all but four of their 15 games so far with Frank Lampard’s side sitting 17th in the table and only four points above bottom side Wolves.


The young attacker scored the winning penalty against former Spurs goalkeeper Joe Hart in a shoot-out this weekend as Everton overcame Celtic on tour in Australia in the Sydney Super Cup.


Gordon still has three years left on his contract with the Toffees and his value has remained steady with suggestions in the summer that Everton would only hold out for a similar price tag to the one that saw Richarlison make the switch to Spurs. Any move for Gordon will be far more difficult in the January transfer window rather than next summer but football.london understands Tottenham will continue to monitor his situation in case an opportunity arises.

Chelsea are understood to remain interested, despite reports that they have dropped out of the running. For Tottenham, the north London side are keeping a close eye on their homegrown numbers with Antonio Conte naming the full limit of 17 foreign players in his Champions League squad this season, helped by a UEFA rule change that meant Welsh players like Ben Davies, who played for a Welsh club in the English system (Swansea) are now considered locally trained.

However, if Conte wants to name a new foreign January signing in his squad for the knockout stages as Spurs take on AC Milan across two legs he will have to remove at least one player from his current numbers. Youngsters Bryan Gil and Pape Matar Sarr could be sent out on loan moves as they seek more game time, with the 21-year-old Spaniard having just 73 minutes under his belt this season and 20-year-old Sarr, currently at the World Cup with Senegal, without a first team minute to his name.
