Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed a busy summer of transfer activity, but they may not be finished just yet. Journalist Paul Brown has warned people not to rule out a late Spurs bid for Everton attacker Anthony Gordon.

Sporting director Fabio Paratici has operated shrewdly this summer, with seven new signings already coming in to add strength in depth to the Spurs squad.

Despite this, Antonio Conte is keen to add another creative player to his roster (Evening Standard). Spurs have been linked with a whole host of names in recent weeks, and one name that keeps popping up is Everton youngster Anthony Gordon (Football Insider).

London rivals Chelsea appear to be the frontrunners in the race to secure Gordon’s signature (The Times). According to reports, Chelsea are prepared to pay around £60 million for the young Englishman (Sky Sports).

The player himself is said to be open to a move to a bigger club, with ambitions of breaking into Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead of the World Cup this winter (The Athletic).

The deal may not be done and dusted just yet though, and according to journalist Paul Brown, a late bid from Tottenham Hotspur should not be ruled out.

Brown believes the added incentive of beating a rival to Gordon’s signature is likely to be on Daniel Levy’s mind too.

He told GiveMeSport: “Don’t rule out a late bid from Spurs, especially as they know it would really annoy Chelsea, which is something I’m sure the Spurs chairman would love to do.”

Of all the attackers Spurs have been linked to over the last few weeks, Anthony Gordon is one of the more unproven players on the list, and anyone who makes the move for him is most certainly paying for potential more than anything. A fee of £60 million feels excessive for Gordon, but you can’t put a price on besting a rival.
