Chelsea’s interest in Anthony Gordon sounds so unlikely in terms of the positions we need to buy in, and the price tag put on him, and the fact that Everton don’t want to sell him, and the fact that it was bizarrely leaked in the aftermath of our crazy game against Tottenham yesterday.
Yet here we are 24 hours later and the rumours keep coming, despite all that.
More and more impressive sources are reporting it as true, making it seem like it’s being heavily briefed to top insiders, true or not.
Caughtoffside have interesting notes from Fabrizio Romano, who says that Chelsea are internally discussing potential swap deals for the winger.
Conor Gallagher is one of the names mentioned, but surely that’s off the table now that N’Golo Kante is injured.
Honestly, we’re confused by this whole deal – the whole thing sounds off, but we can’t figure out the truth just yet.
