Everton could entice Premier League ace to move as Anthony Gordon exit looks increasingly likely

Leandro Trossard, Neal Maupay, Brighton, September 2021.

Everton are reportedly keen on the signing of Brighton star Leandro Trossard, as Anthony Gordon may soon leave the Toffees.

The saga regarding Gordon to Chelsea has gone on for a little while this summer. The Blues have reportedly had two offers for the winger turned down.

Still, it appears they are keen on landing the youngster. Recent reports have stated that Chelsea are willing to offer a deal that could total £60million for Gordon.

Indeed, it seems that Everton may soon have to let the winger go. They will want to line up a replacement quickly, if that is to happen.

It seems they already have a solid replacement in place, too.

Football Insider reports that Everton have set their sights on Brighton winger Trossard. However, Brighton will seemingly do their all to keep Trossard at the club.

Indeed, while it was thought Trossard was in the final year of his deal, Graham Potter has denied that.

Still, Everton could tempt him to the club with a good offer. Should they sell Gordon, they will likely have a good sum of money to play with.

Trossard’s agent has admitted the right offer could entice him.

“Leandro will not leave just to leave. If he were to consider a switch, it must be a really attractive project with guarantees on playing minutes. There is a World Cup coming up, so it is crucial for Leandro to keep rhythm,” he told HBvL.

Trossard an apt Gordon replacement

Replacing Gordon with Trossard would be good business by Everton. Indeed, they would likely be able to buy the Belgian for less than they may sell Gordon for, given Chelsea’s willingness to spend big.

While Gordon has shown promise – hence the Blues’ interest – he only contributed to four Premier League goals last season. In one game less, Trossard scored eight and assisted three.

The winger has scored at least five goals in each of his three seasons in England before the current campaign.

As such, Everton would be bringing in a player who has proven his quality over the past few seasons. They would be able to offer him consistent minutes, too, with Gordon likely heading through the exit door.
