Yesterday it was no one really understanding why Leicester was seen as a possible place to move for Everton forward Anthony Gordon. A player said to be valued to £60million, but not in a position to cement a place in Frank Lampard’s team.
The 21 year old has been linked to Newcastle and Aston Villa earlier and during this transfer window, but this race could be one seeing Leicester as the winners with one obvious advantage.
Leicester will, if they play their cards correctly, have an advantage as Kelechi Iheanacho could be part of a deal and funding the move with him going in the opposite direction. Leicester will never field a bid of £60million, as was said to be what Chelsea considered paying in the summer, but they could go as high as £30million and consider putting Kelechi in to the package, as his situation at Leicester looks a nightmare.
He had a great period running for him Kelechi, but with Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka in fronr, he will not be played much, with Everton probably more open to give him chances and in all it would be a perfect switch. Everton har reported to be in search for a striker with goalscoring abilities at Premier League level.
We do believe that Anthony Gordon would be ideal in a top three alongside Vardy / Daka and Barnes as the England U.21 international will get a new life and challenge if joining Leicester. This could also open up for a Ayoze Perez move and give Leicester fans something to look forward to with great excitement.
