The rumours tonight around Anthony Gordon are that Newcastle have beaten Chelsea to the winger’s signing.
Matt Law says that a move to St James’ Park could be “done very soon.” The young attacker had been linked with Chelsea at the start of the season, and again in recent days following the sacking of Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.
This isn’t one that most Chelsea fans will be too upset about. Most people were puzzled by our links to Gordon in the summer, let alone hearing them again now we’ve signed THREE further attacking players.
As reported by @LukeEdwardsTele here, Newcastle now confident of signing Anthony Gordon – could be done v soon. Chelsea had shown an interest again but no new bid as yet. Multiple clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal have also expressed interest in Onana – more likely for summer https://t.co/8gN0YGmSip

So if he does go to Newcastle – and it looks like we will – not many tears will be shed.
We’ve got more important things to worry about – namely a back up right back and a central midfielder. Gordon is a talent, but Newcastle need him more than we do, and they have even more money to spend.
