Tottenham Hotspur dropped down to fourth place in the Premier League table this weekend after a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Newcastle United leapfrogged Spurs into the top three by beating Southampton 4-1 on Sunday, and Antonio Conte’s side were unable to regain third place as they succumbed to defeat to The Reds in the late kick off.

Conte’s side have now won just one of their last four Premier League matches, losing the other three, and it appears that the Italian is already considering possible signings for the upcoming January transfer window.

According to The Sun, Spurs are plotting a move for Everton’s Anthony Gordon in January.

The report claims that Spurs could test The Toffees’ resolve with an offer when the window opens, with talks having already begun.

Both Tottenham and rivals Chelsea were interested in the Englishman over the summer, with the latter having at least one offer for the winger rejected.

Gordon, 21, has thrived since the arrival of Frank Lampard at Goodison Park and the ex-England midfielder is a huge admirer of the player and is intent on keeping hold of him.

The England under-21 international has scored three goals in 13 league matches so far this season, but those in charge of Everton are reportedly worried that the interest over the summer from Spurs and Chelsea may have caused a distraction.

The offer from Chelsea that was rejected during the summer window was reportedly worth £40 million, which implies that Spurs will have to offer more than that figure to have any chance of luring the player to the capital.

Gordon is currently contracted to boyhood club Everton until the summer of 2025, but the club are hopeful of persuading the player to sign an extension and talks have already started.

It is also claimed in the report that The Blues are no longer interested in Gordon, which could allow Spurs an easier run at signing the forward.

Spurs signed Richarlison from Everton over the summer, and it is suggested that The Toffees will likely demand a similar fee to the £60 million that the Brazilian cost if they are to part ways with Gordon.
