Newcastle join Chelsea in Anthony Gordon transfer race as they 'open talks' over winger and Everton name their price | The Sun

NEWCASTLE are reportedly set to rival Chelsea in the chase for Everton winger Anthony Gordon.

The Blues tried to sign the Englishman in the summer but were unable to agree on a deal with the Toffees.

The Magpies are believed to have "opened talks" with Everton, and there is a deal to be done this month, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that a financial package of £25million with £15m in add-ons could lead to a transfer.

Although it is thought that Everton are aiming for a fee in the region of £60m.

It is not thought that the Magpies would be willing to pay that much for the forward, who has scored three goals in 16 Premier League appearances this season.

He impressed last campaign as his four goals and two assists in 35 appearances helped the club escape relegation.

The report also suggests that Eddie Howe's side would be willing to loan him back to Goodison Park for the remainder of the season.

This could be a big boost for the Toffees as Gordon could help them in their battle to beat the drop, with the club currently sitting 19th in the Premier League table.

The Magpies have lost striker Chris Wood this month after he joined Nottingham Forest on loan for the remainder of the season.
