Chelsea are expected to revive their interest in Everton star Anthony Gordon as ‘his head was turned’ and he ‘pushed’ for a summer move to Stamford Bridge, according to journalist Simon Phillips. Although the Blues parted with more than £250million during the transfer window, they were unable to get a deal for Gordon over the line.
