Yannick Bolasie has urged Everton to keep Anthony Gordon at Goodison Park as Tottenham are reportedly set to enter talks to land both him and Richarlison in a double deal believed to have value in the region of has 85 million pounds.
Gordon, 21, has thrown himself onto the stage at Everton for the past 12 months. Prior to the 2021-22 season, he had won just 20 senior games for the Toffees – he was loaned out to Championship side Preston North End.
But last season he played 40 times in all competitions. The England Under-21 man was excellent and was often praised for his work output and tenacity – the mentality of a fighter in the middle of a relegation battle. Everton finished 16th.
Spurs were reportedly in talks on a double deal for the Everton duo on Monday – with Goal saying it would cost £85million; Richarlison at £60m and Gordon at £25m. Bolasie has urged Everton to keep the latter.

A fascinating summer always takes a surprising turn. Tottenham have been regularly linked with Richarlison. The Toffees are apparently open to his exit if the right price is put on the table this summer. They must facilitate financial fair play.
A £60million fee would certainly be enough to send Frank Lampard’s side bye. It’s a different story for Gordon. Everton will be desperate to keep the youngster after such a crucial run of form in 2021-22.
He is seen as Everton’s future, the player who can lead them back into European competition. Losing him for £25million would be a blow. The Toffees have to be careful not to upset their fans about Gordon.
