Chelsea have been linked with a £60m move for Everton forward Anthony Gordon.

The young 21-year-old winger has barely had much experience in the Premier League, and many pundits have slammed the deal, saying Gordon isn’t worth £60m.

Gordon has made 64 appearances for Everton, scoring five goals with eight assists.

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has responded to the critics and has said the potential of Gordon could rise above the said £60m.

“I think it’s a bit unfair of everyone saying he’s not worth this and he’s not worth that. I think Chelsea have seen a very special talent and have decided to go after him,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“Evertonians won’t like it because they recognise he’s a really good player and they want to keep one of their own because fan bases don’t like losing their own. He’s a terrific footballer.

“People will say it’s £60m for a potential player but potential is reaching the highest value now. Proven [players] in some ways are not as good as potential [players] now but I think Anthony Gordon has already proved himself as a really top talent.”

“His pace is quite clear, he can run direct, he’s got a great turn of foot and he’ll go past people,” Cascarino added.

“He’s fearless, tenacious and he’s got a lot of great things in his game.”

    This isn’t worth £23m, we must understand the issue of hype by the English Press. That is how they hype. This hasn’t proven nothing yet, even those who had proven a point most times ended up wining down let alone a player who hasn’t done anything.
