Anthony Gordon not for sale – Lampard tells Chelsea

Everton boss, Frank Lampard has said that he is not selling Anthony Gordon to his(Lampard) former club, Chelsea.

Chelsea has made the young striker one of its targets this summer but Lampard said Gordon is not for sale.

The Blues have made two offers for the player which were rejected by the Toffees with the last being in the region of £45 million, for the 21-year-old academy graduate.

Lampard, who addressed the press on Friday ahead of the Premier League clashes, said, “Anthony Gordon is an Everton player, and that’s it for me, I don’t want to talk about hypotheticals.

“He has got a huge value to the team and to me. We are not looking at it as ‘Where can we go with this deal?’ Anthony is a great player for us.

“We know his value but he’s a big player for me and the team.

“You can’t ask me to assure anything, it’ll be naive of me to assure anything. I can’t assure I’ll be here by the end of the window.”
