When asked about Guehi, the Real Madrid superstar told ITV: “[He was] brilliant. He picked the lines amazingly.

“He played against two, for me, really good centre-forwards at this level, [Dusan] Vlahovic and [Aleksandar] Mitrovic, I think, two really, really tricky customers and he was unbelievable.

“It helps a lot when you have [John] Stonesy beside him, one of the best around but yeah, I thought he was fantastic.”

What has Anthony Gordon said?

Newcastle winger Gordon has now become the latest England star to commend Guehi.

The 23-year-old told TalkSPORT: “He’s top, he’s such a good player and I was glad the nation got to see him shine on that stage because he’s such a lovely guy and he deserves what’s coming to him.

“I thought he was unbelievable in that game [vs Serbia] considering his height compared to the strikers they had on.

“He won every header, he was aggressive, intercepting loads and his main strength is composure on the ball, he’s like a midfielder.

“So him and Stonesy at the back, it’s a great partnership to control a game.”

When asked whether he would want Guehi to join him at St James’ Park, Gordon replied: “I haven’t actually seen the Newcastle links, but it goes without saying I’d absolutely love him to come because he’s a top player and he’d make us a better team.”

Guehi has two years left on his current Crystal Palace contract, while the Eagles have reportedly set their asking price at €77 million (£65m).
