Chelsea ‘set to launch FIFTH Anthony Gordon transfer bid worth £60m’ as they close in on highly-rated Everton star
CHELSEA are reportedly prepared to launch a £60million bid in another attempt to sign Everton winger Anthony Gordon.
The Blues have been pushing to sign the 21-year-old for a number of weeks, but they have seen multiple bids rejected.
Their most recent offer of £45m was swiftly knocked by Everton last week as the Toffees demanded at least £50m.
But now, according to The Daily Mail, Chelsea are willing to meet the £50m asking price for Gordon AND offer up to £10m in add-ons.
This will take the overall value of the deal up to £60.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is hoping that this will be Chelsea’s fifth and final offer for the England U21 international.
The West London side are understood to have already had four bids rejected.
Gordon dropped a huge hint on Monday suggesting that he could be set to leave Goodison Park.
Fans were quick to notice that he had removed all Everton links from his Instagram bio.
The winger is understood to be keen on the prospect of joining Chelsea.

Everton have been attempting to tie him down with a new deal offer, but Gordon is currently prepared to run down his contract.
Meanwhile, the Toffees have sent scouts to watch Manchester United transfer target Cody Gakpo in action for PSV.
The Dutch side are expecting just £34million for the winger, who expresses similar characteristics to Richarlison.
