Really hope this isn't true. I trust in Howe and co of course but I fail to see how a wide player is the solution to our shortage up front, especially as Willock's been doing well there, Joelinton can play there, ASM is still available off the bench, Isak is even supposed to be able to play wide left. How does this player plug any sort of hole in our system? I saw a comment earlier about buying for potential - I don't think we're at the point where we can spend 40m on "potential." 

 

Now, if we sold ASM, I could see it maybe.

I largely agree. It all comes down to what the price is.

 

For a wide player he really does play a lot through the middle (right footed playing on the left) so perhaps Howe is envisioning him being similar to Maddison in an attacking midfield role if we are indeed interested.

Wasn't Gordon clocked as the quickest player in the league last year? Personally think he'd fit into our system perfectly given his pressing out of possession. 

Agree with this, I don’t rate him based off what I’ve seen but fully trust Ashworth, Howe etc so if they see a player I’m in full support. 
Some of his stats this season compared to other attacking mids/wingers and that aligns with what AgentAxeman says, clearly hard working and a good presser. I think while his offensive stats are weak he’s scored 3 of Evertons 15 goals and I don’t imagine they have a ton of opportunities for him to show that side of his game. We will see I guess, but they’ve not really missed so far with their first choice players (Wood I saw more as a bit of a panic buy/quick fix).

“he can operate in several midfield positions, and has been used as an attacking midfielder or "trequartista,"

CN going back to his normal self I see.

 

tbf, i don't think gordon is worth £60m. that's the sort of figure you would expect to pay for a more established player, such as maddison
