Everton star Gordon: £60M offers for me just crazy

Everton star Anthony Gordon says he ignores the crazy money being offered for him.

Chelsea had several bids turned down for the England Under-21 star this summer with Everton unwilling to sell their prized asset.

It came in a summer when the Blues splashed £62million on Brighton's Marc Cucurella and £70m on Wesley Fofana of Leicester.

While Gordon's fellow Young Lion Morgan Gibbs-White left Wolves for Nottingham Forest in a £42.5m deal.

Gordon himself is valued at around £60-70m but would never look in the mirror and arrogantly believe he is worth that eye-watering amount of dough.

The whizkid, 21, said: “I think the minute you do that, there's only one way you're going to go.

“You need to stay humble. You need to focus on today and tomorrow and don't look too far into the future.

“The money in football, that's just how it is nowadays. It's absolutely crazy. Personally, I don't think any player is worth that amount of money but I'm also not going to talk myself down.

“I wasn't too focused on that because I can only control what I can control."
