Journalist Paul Brown has claimed that Tottenham might think twice about reigniting their interest in Anthony Gordon, due to the Everton winger’s poor form so far this season.
Tottenham’s efforts to snap up Gordon were knocked back by Everton during the summer transfer window (Lyall Thomas) but multiple publications have backed the North London club to try again in January.
The Sun reported a couple of weeks ago that the Lilywhites were mulling over whether to push ahead with an offer for the 21-year-old in January.
The Times claimed last week that it was only Everton’s £60m asking price that Spurs were put off by in the summer and that Antonio Conte’s men are expected to explore another move for the winger when the transfer window reopens.
However, Brown has now pointed out that Gordon has struggled to maintain the form he showed last season at Goodison Park, which might put off the likes of Tottenham from pursuing a deal.
When asked about Spurs’ pursuit of the Everton star, the journalist told GiveMeSport: “The one problem here is that Anthony Gordon’s form has absolutely fallen off a cliff since the summer.
“There are plenty of Everton fans who have wanted to see him dropped because he’s not producing at the level that he was before. He looks slightly out of sorts.
“I don’t think, in the long-term, that’s going to be an issue for him and I think there will be clubs still sniffing around, but it might make Spurs think twice at the moment.”

Gordon’s downturn in form might be down to the fact that his head is already elsewhere, owing to the speculation over his future. That might work to convince Everton to potentially cash in on the winger and lower their asking price.
