Everton are demanding that Chelsea include either Conor Gallagher or Armando Broja in a deal for forward Anthony Gordon, according to reports. 

As per TalkSPORT, The Toffees have requested that one of the pair is sent to Merseyside on loan, as negotiations continue between the two clubs over a move for Gordon.

So far, Chelsea have had at least two bids rejected for the player, with the latest believed to be worth around £60 million.

Their first offer, believed to be £40, was rejected straight away, but it is claimed that Everton are now more willing to do business.

Gordon, 21, has told Everton that he wants to move to the capital to join Thomas Tuchel’s side, the report claims.

Gallagher’s first start for Chelsea didn’t go to plan

Everton boss Frank Lampard knows all too well how impressive Chelsea’s youth system is, and he has been rumoured to be interested in a number of the club’s young players this summer.

Billy Gilmour was touted for a move to Goodison Park, but it now appears that Lampard has turned his attention to Gallagher.

The 22-year-old midfielder made his first start for The Blues during their 3-0 loss at Leeds United on Sunday, and it is expected that he will be a part of Tuchel’s squad this term after impressive loan spells with both West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace.

Broja, meanwhile, made substitute appearances in both of Chelsea’s first two matches, but missed the trip to Elland Road due to injury. He, too, is expected to be part of the senior squad this season.
