Tottenham Hotspur prepare package to sign Everton duo Richarlison and Anthony Gordon
Tottenham Hotspur are preparing a package to sign Everton duo of Richarlison and Anthony Gordon, according to journalist Alan Myers.
The North London-based club have been in the market to sign a striker and a winger in the ongoing transfer window.
While Richarlison has been on their list for quite some time now, the addition of Gordon will come as a surprise, especially considering that Spurs were also linked with a move for Leeds United winger Raphinha.

Many Everton fans were mentally prepared to let one of Richarlison or Dominic Calvert-Lewin to leave the club in the summer after the club managed to narrowly escape relegation in the previous campaign.
However, getting an offer for someone like Gordon will come as nothing less than a shock for many.
The youngster recently broke into the start XI last season and has been highly rated by the top-tier management at the club.
Since Spurs are playing in the Champions League next season, they need a bigger squad with players who are ready to give their all in four different competitions but for Everton, the case of Gordon is very tricky.
The Merseyside club will find it extremely hard to ask the youngster to commit his long-term future at the Goodison Park, in a situation where a bigger club that can offer him a chance to play in the Champions League, comes knocking.
