Chelsea make approach for Everton's Anthony Gordon
Chelsea have made a move for Everton starlet Anthony Gordon, sources have confirmed to 90min.
21-year-old Gordon has already been the subject of interest this summer with both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United failing with bids.
Everton resisted the earlier offers, insisting that Gordon was not for sale, and even if he was it would take a bid in excess of £50m - with both Tottenham and Newcastle not going above £40m.
Chelsea have now made an approach and are believed to have come up with an initial deal worth just over £40m.
90min understands that Everton are considering their options as there is the possibility of doing a deal with Chelsea that could involve players, something Toffees boss Frank Lampard is believed to be interested in doing.
Everton have already held talks with Chelsea about a number of players including Michy Batshuayi, Billy Gilmour, Conor Gallagher, Callum Hudson-Odoi and their former player Ross Barkley.
Chelsea are looking to bolster their own attacking options and they are keen on wide players having missed out on Raphinha earlier in the summer, and are open to moving on current players Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi.
England Under-21 star Gordon, who is a product of Everton's famed academy, has three years left on his current contract at Goodison Park.
