Newcastle United are preparing an opening offer for Everton ace Anthony Gordon, sources have confirmed to 90min, but Chelsea are also monitoring the situation.

90min revealed last week that Everton were ready to consider approaches for the 21-year-old forward, after failing to come to an agreement over an extension to his contract, which is set to run until 2025.

Sources have told 90min that Newcastle have been doing their homework on Gordon and have been pleased with the reports that have come back on him.
