Chelsea consider loaning Anthony Gordon back to Everton in order to complete January deal
Everton want £55m to sell the winger. Chelsea are offering a deal where they can buy him now but loan him back to Goodison Park till the end of this campaign to help them save against relegation.
Newcastle United are also in the race for the player. But, the Magpies are offering a package of less than £55m and won’t allow him to go back to Merseyside for the remaining months of this season.
Keeping that in mind and considering the underwhelming season Gordon has had so far, it does not make sense to fork out £55m for him, irrespective of the option of loaning him back now.
Instead of that, the club can focus on spending the money to sign a midfielder who can come now and make a much-needed difference in that department.
We are in the race for Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez, Amadou Onana and Alexis Mac Allister. The aim should be to get one of them over the line before the end of this month rather than spending time and energy on the Gordon deal.

It is no disrespect to the player, but he hasn’t had a consistent period of good performances under his belt. He is a talented player who has shown glimpses of good play now and then.
