Newcastle hold talks with Everton over move for Gordon

Newcastle have held talks over a move for Everton forward Anthony Gordon. 

The Magpies are looking to replace striker Chris Wood, who left for Nottingham Forest last week

Although not a like-for-like replacement, Newcastle see 21-year-old Gordon as a player who can operate in a number of positions across the front line.

Newcastle were rebuffed with an inquiry for Gordon in the summer, but have retained an interest.

It is thought a bid of around £40m could tempt Everton to sell.

Complicating the move somewhat is Everton's managerial situation - Frank Lampard was sacked on Monday and any new incumbent may want to keep Gordon.

During the summer transfer window, Chelsea conducted high-level talks with Everton over Gordon's availability.
