and based on our chats I see no a reason Gordon would not be ready to play unless some of the Twitter crap from segments of our fans has upset him.
According to my Chelsea contact almost everything reported so far has been inaccurate and hyped beyond the underlying substance. They think the public stuff has mainly come from two sources: Gordonís agent and Billís inner circle, but they acknowledge Boehly is unpredictable so he might be leaking stuff as well.
I am told:
There was a chat, about several players with figures tossed about but not an actual bid for anyone,
There has been another chat, same players, more numbers, still no bids.
The chats covered Chelsea players (notably Broja and Gallagher) as well as Gordon.
Both sides were left feeling no real encouragement that their targets were attainable, which is bad news for Broja and Gallagher fans on here.
More contact is likely so things could change on one or more players in that conversation.
It is true that Gordon is not signing the current contract offer, mainly because it is not a great offer from his agentís perspective but the Everton end insist he is very open to signing a better one so 🤷🏻♂️
I would not say he is pushing to leave from anything I have been told but his agent is trying to get a big deal out of us or someone else more in line with deals some of his contemporaries now have (including Reece James at Chelsea with whom he shares the agent).
We also know Bill has form for seeing an opportunity to make a high value sale.
I have no idea what the outcome will be. No point guessing.
Or would his head have been turned with all this transfer talk?
Ö.is that this gives us room for manoeuvre in terms of up front and to keep AG which is what Frank wants.
I just donít think heís good enough, and he doesnít fit in the system we play at the momentÖ(the picture on our website with him wearing sunglasses, isnít helping him as well in my opinion 😅
