Before the summer transfer market closes next month, Newcastle United still has some work to do.
The English-managed Magpies, coached by Eddie Howe, are hoping to take care of the outstanding play that saw them finish the previous season’s campaign strongly.
The Geordies are on the right track to surpass their Eleventh-place finish from the previous season after defeating Nottingham Forest 2-0 at home on the opening weekend of the brand new 2022–23 campaign.
The Toon will likely sign yet another player before the summer transfer window closes originally of next month, though, with the intention to proceed their remarkable turnaround after their bumper takeover nearly 12 months ago.
In accordance with recent reports, Anthony Gordon of Everton is one name that’s high on their shopping list.
In accordance with a recent article in The Athletic, sporting director Dan Ashworth has been involved with the 21-year-old quick-footed winger to debate a possible signing.
A snippet from the outlet’s report said: “Although there was no dramatic shift in Newcastle’s priorities, he [Ashworth] has led calls to other clubs, chatting with Everton about Anthony Gordon and coping with Leicester City over James Maddison.”
Given their strong negotiation position and the incontrovertible fact that Gordon, 21, still has three years left on his contract at Goodison Park, it will be an important shock if Frank Lampard’s Toffees approved a transfer.
