Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s stance on Man Utd, Arsenal or Newcastle move | football | Sports

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin would reportedly be open to the idea of ​​leaving the Toffees to join Manchester United, Arsenal or Newcastle before next season. The 25-year-old is said to be not lacking in outside interest in his services and it seems like a change of scenery could be imminent soon after Everton rose by a hair’s breadth earlier this month.

Newcastle are believed to be weighing up a possible summer move for Calvert-Lewin, while United and Arsenal have long been credited with a shared desire to snap him up in the not too distant future. The player himself would not resist entertaining offers from any of the aforementioned clubs in the next few weeks after a hugely disappointing season which was plagued by injury woes at Everton, according to The Mirror.

The report claims Everton are preparing for bids to be submitted in the next few months but are in no mood to be pushed into selling for less than they think he’s worth. Given he currently sits just behind Harry Kane in the England pecking order, it would likely take a big bid to convince the Toffees to part ways with Calvert-Lewin.

However, the club’s finances have suffered badly in recent months from the fallout from Covid and a lack of recent revenue from Russian main supporter Alisher Usmanov, who was blacklisted by the UK government earlier this year. Everton have recorded an unprecedented £250million in losses over the past two seasons, which could suggest a potential big-money offer for Calvert-Lewin could ultimately prove too good to turn down.

Frank Lampard is said to be desperate for plenty of signings to avoid another Premier League relegation battle next season and it seems player sales will be needed to bolster his existing budget. However, it remains to be seen whether Calvert-Lewin will be among the possible departures given his crucial importance to Lampard’s action plan.

The striker has scored just five Premier League goals this season but has missed most of the season through injury and is determined to stay fit and get back to his former form when the action resumes. Arsenal icon Paul Merson recently urged his former club to break the bank to bring Calvert-Lewin to the Emirates Stadium to solve their attacking woes by endorsing the addition of a proven goalscorer with great potential.

“Calvert-Lewin is young and hungry, he will be England’s No9 first choice for years to come,” Merson wrote in his Daily Star column earlier this year.

“He holds the ball very well and works his way out of his socks at the front. I’ve seen quite a few center forwards in my time and he works as hard as any of them. Also, he’s good in the air and he scores goals, I’d take that deal now!

“He’s getting better and better and ticks all the boxes. He would join a squad full of young, hungry English players who could all grow together.”
