Frank Lampard clarifies on Anthony Gordon transfer decision following Chelsea £60m ‘offer’

Everton manager and ex-Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has stated that he is hoping for a quick resolution to the Anthony Gordon transfer saga this summer.

It comes as Chelsea press ahead with their efforts to sign the 21-year-old before the deadline.

With only one week until then, there appears to be plenty of action to be sorted out in west London.

So far, six signings have been made, with three of them being immediate first-team options and the other half being promising youngsters with the potential to be future stars.

Thomas Tuchel still has a jumbled squad on his hands, with some players unsure of their future and a need to strengthen.

Discussing the latest on transfers, the German coach said after the defeat away at Leeds: “I don’t know. We need to wait. The transfer period is still open. It gets later and later, and we need to focus on what we have and what we can do.”

While the manager’s outlook was not overly optimistic, it appears that there are plenty of deals to be completed.

Wesley Fofana, a Leicester City defender, was the subject of a third bid from the club, which was rejected, with the Frenchman training with the youth team after failing to show up for training one day.

Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also on the list, and a reunion with Tuchel is possible after several talks. 

Then there’s Gordon, who is said to have received a £60 million offer from the Blues in the last day as interest in him grows.

Speaking after the game, he said: “It is a football decision and a financial decision and it has to be right for everyone. Anthony is our player.

“He’s our player, everyone knows of Chelsea’s interest, we have a good relationship, ideally [find a quick resolution to the situation] or we carry on and he’s our player.”

With little time left in the market to complete deals, the Blues may have to work late into the day to ensure Gordon moves from Goodison Park to Stamford Bridge.
