CHELSEA are reportedly ready to take advantage of the turmoil at Everton.
That’s by raiding the relegation battlers for Anthony Gordon AND Amadou Onana.
Everton are approaching crisis mode as they sit joint-bottom of the Premier League table with Southampton.
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was sacked by the Toffees on Monday after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at West Ham.
But there is also financial trouble brewing at Goodison Park as Everton struggle to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
And the Telegraph claims Chelsea could make bids for both Gordon and Onana before deadline day.
The pair, both 21, are regarded as key men by Everton’s hierarchy and unsellable.
But Chelsea are prepared to step in with tasty bids while also loaning Gordon and Onana back to the Toffees for the remainder of the campaign.
The Blues remain keen on signing Gordon after having a £60m bid rejected last summer.
Meanwhile, Onana has emerged as a target to boost Graham Potter’s midfield, despite only joining Everton from Lille six months ago.
And Goodison chiefs now face a battle to keep the pair past the end of the season as they look to quickly appoint a new manager.
Chelsea have already signed SIX players this month, with Noni Madueke the latest arrival from PSV Eindhoven.
But Todd Boehly is ready to make it seven after launching a bid for Lyon right-back Malo Gusto.
The American is also keen on Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and Benfica’s Enzo Fernandez.
And the future is looking bright for Chelsea fans after glimpsing some exciting debut performances from attackers Joao Felix and Mykhailo Mudryk.
