Newcastle are considering a fresh move for Everton forward Anthony Gordon as well as bidding for Flamengo teenager Matheus Franca.

As Chris Wood joins Nottingham Forest on loan with an obligation to buy for £15million, Newcastle have offered £13.5m to Flamengo for Brazil U20 international forward Franca, 18, and have revived interest in Gordon.

Everton need to sell to move forward in the market and also have had enquiries for Gordon from Tottenham and Chelsea.

Newcastle are considering a fresh move for Everton forward Anthony Gordon

Their £50m plus valuation has been prohibitive previously but Newcastle sense there may be a willingness to deal after Gordon was targeted by angry fans last week and Everton desperate for reinforcements. 

Frank Lampard’s crisis-hit club are now 19th in the Premier League and level on points with rock-bottom Southampton, who came from behind to beat them 2-1 at a mutinous Goodison Park on Saturday.

And supporters took to the streets after the match to run after Gordon’s car, scream obscenities and tell him to ‘get out of our club’ – after team-mate Yerry Mina was also confronted and urged to ‘show a bit of heart’ in their relegation battle. 

Video on social media site TikTok showed supporters screaming ‘f***ing d***head’ at Gordon

TikTok footage shows the fan sprinting down the road to catch up to Gordon’s window before shouting through the driver-side window: ‘You f***ing d***head. Eh! K***head. Gordon! What the f***, like? F*** off! Get out of our club.’

Another then sings: ‘You’re not fit to wear the shirt, you’re not fit to wear the shirt,’ with a third adding: ‘Get out (of the car), speak to the fans.’ 

The supporter filming the encounter then says: ‘F***ing rats. Little maggots. You know what to do.’

Flamengo want Manchester United’s Facundo Pellistri on loan to replace Franca.
