Transfer: He’s fearless, tenacious – Cascarino hails Chelsea’s £60m target amid criticism
Chelsea legend Tony Cascarino has slammed those who are of the opinion that Everton star Anthony Gordon is not worth £60million.
Chelsea are interested and have made the move to sign the 21-year-old this summer.
Some pundits have criticised the player’s valuation, which according to reports, Chelsea are willing to meet. Cascarino believes the mooted price is a fair one.
“I think it’s a bit unfair of everyone saying he’s not worth this and he’s not worth that. I think Chelsea have seen a very special talent and have decided to go after him,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
He pointed out that Everton would be pained to allow Gordon to leave because they recognise he is a really good player and they want to keep him.

“He’s fearless, tenacious and he’s got a lot of great things in his game,” Cascarino added.
