According to reports, Everton winger Anthony Gordon has told Everton manager Frank Lampard that he wants to join Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea have seen a bid of £40m rejected for Gordon.

The Blues are now set to table a fresh offer for Gordon, which is most likely going to be accepted by Everton.

According to The Athletic, the offer will be worth £50m up front plus £10m in various add-ons, and Gordon himself is pushing Everton to accept the offer.

Speaking after Everton’s Carabao Cup win at Fleetwood Town, Lampard told talkSPORT: “He’s our player and the latest is the same as what I said after the game against Nottingham Forest – he’s our player and he’s got three years left on his contract.

“We’re aware of the interest of Chelsea as the world is now.

“This situation has to be right for Everton Football Club and for me as the coach of the team so we’re in the same position that we were a few days ago.”
