It's expected a formal bid will arrive from Chelsea anytime now and the player has made it clear to Everton he would like to move to London.
Speaking after the game, Lampard told reporters: "Everyone knows there's interest from Chelsea but he's our player, simple as that."

When asked if reports suggesting Gordon has asked to leave Goodison Park were true, Lampard said: " I'm never going go into conversations between me and Anthony have. We've got a good relationship I won't even go there."

Lampard needs to add forward options to his squad before the transfer window ends and a potential deal would raise the finances to make that happen.

Tottenham wanted to sign the England U21 international in a package deal with Richarlison for a combined £80m earlier in the summer but were not successful. Newcastle also made an approach, but did not submit a formal bid.

Thomas Tuchel's side have spent a league-topping £176.5m on new signings this summer, primarily on three first-team signings: Marc Cucurella (£63m), Raheem Sterling (£47.5m) and Kalidou Koulibaly (£34m).

Gordon has started all three of Everton's Premier League games so far this season, playing at times as a false No 9 in the absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin as the striker recovers from a knee injury.

The 21-year-old has made 52 Premier League appearances so far for Everton, scoring four goals. It was his free-kick which led to Jarrad Branthwaite scoring an equaliser against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in December last year.
