He added: “He’s our player and we will definitely not sell him this summer.”
It’s not clear whether Everton’s interest in Maupay affects the future of Gordon or not, but Jamie Carragher doesn’t think the Toffees should sell. He said: “It’s a lot of money for a young player who is just coming onto the scene, but I don’t see how Everton could accept that. The position they find themselves in right now, lacking attacking players.
“He’s the one big hope for the club. The supporters aren’t deaf at Everton. They’ve lost their first two games and they know they’re in for a difficult season. They need attacking players to come in so there’s no way they can let him go. Especially with him being a local lad, he’s the one fans are hanging their hats on. I think it would have to be a lot higher than that if Everton are going to sanction that.”
