Everton to hand Anthony Gordon massive pay-rise

Everton are ready to hand Anthony Gordon a massive pay-rise.

But Frank Lampard’s Toffees may have to agree to a £75million release clause in a bid to ward off Chelsea and other suitors in January.

The Sun says Gordon, who was named in Lee Carsley’s England Under-21 squad yesterday, signed a five-year contract in 2020 for £10,000-a-week and the pay rise could see his wage rise to £60k-per-week.

Lampard yesterday confirmed contract talks are under way for the 21-year-old winger.

He said: “The club is speaking with Anthony and Anthony’s people to see if we can get the right solution.”
