Chelsea hold 'internal talks' over £50m star at Stamford Bridge
The Blues have made an unbeaten start to the new campaign, having followed up an opening day win over Gordon’s current side with a draw against Tottenham Hotspur, but head coach Thomas Tuchel could look to strengthen his squad ahead of the September 1 deadline.
What’s the latest news involving Gordon?
Chelsea have made their interest in Gordon clear by heading to Everton with a £40million bid, only for the proposal to be rejected.
However, the Blues are reportedly refusing to back down and are preparing to test their Premier League rivals’ resolve with another offer worth £45million.
Gordon is a player in demand as it is understood that Newcastle United are set to make a fresh approach for the winger, having previously submitted an unsuccessful £35million bid.
What has Fabrizio Romano said about Gordon?
Romano understands that Chelsea’s initial offer for Gordon was pushed back by Everton.
However, the transfer guru has claimed that talks are taking place between owner Todd Boehly and Tuchel behind the scenes as the Blues are mulling over whether to make an improved bid.
Romano told GIVEMESPORT: “For Anthony Gordon, they made an opening proposal of £40million and it was rejected by Everton.
“Chelsea are discussing internally – Todd Boehly and, of course, Thomas Tuchel – if they want to make another proposal, maybe including some players, or not.
“There are discussions now ongoing about Gordon.”

Who could Chelsea include in a potential cash-plus-player swap deal?
Romano has suggested that Conor Gallagher could be included in a fresh proposal as Chelsea are aware that he is of interest to Everton.
Everton also have an ‘ongoing’ interest in frontman Armando Broja, so Chelsea could look to include the Albania international as they aim to persuade the Toffees into allowing Gordon to head to west London.
