Sky Sports’ Jamie Carragher:

“It’s a lot of money for a young player who’s just emerging on the scene, but I don’t know how Everton can take it. It’s a position they’ve just found for a lack of attacking players.”

“He is the club’s only great hope. The supporters are not deaf at Everton. They have lost their first two games and they know they are going to have a difficult season. They are attacking. They need a good player to come in, so there’s no way they can let him go.

“Especially because he’s a local kid and he’s the one the fans wear hats for.


Is Gordon the answer to Chelsea’s attacking problems?


Sky Sports football journalist Ben Grounds said:

“In an interview with Sky Sports over two years ago, Gordon He revealed that he had been reading The Chimp Paradox by Dr. Steve Peters. It offers a mind management program that helps elite athletes overcome fear and act with control, focus and confidence.

“It tells us that there are two voices in people’s heads, good and bad, so it’s important to balance them and how to deal with them,” he said.

‘Gordon may be grappling with a similar dilemma to make the right choice for his career now, but Chelsea offer £60m to player reluctant to sign new contract If they do, Everton will have to consider what is best for them.”

Everton want to sign the forward and one of their targets is Southampton’s Che Adams.

A source told us that the deal under discussion would value Adams at up to £25million.

Scotland international Adams joined Southampton from Birmingham in 2019 and has scored 22 goals in 98 Premier League appearances, including two of his two appearances this season.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenfutl emphasized the club’s stance on Adams at a press conference ahead of this weekend’s match against Manchester United.

“He’s our player and we’re definitely not selling him this summer,” Hassenhuttl said. “I’m more focused on putting him in a position to score goals.

“His mood in the last few weeks has completely changed since he scored the goal. This has definitely helped him as he has changed form. This is why he feels more comfortable in this role. I think that.”
