Exclusive: Dean Windass says Barnsley’s Daryl Dike could replace Calvert-Lewin

Exclusive: Dean Windass says Barnsley’s Daryl Dike could replace Calvert-Lewin - Everton News

Dean Windass has exclusively told the Transfer Tavern that Barnsley striker Daryl Dike could replace Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Everton, should they lose him this summer.

Despite boasting the likes Richarlison and Josh King as well as the England striker, recent reports have suggested that the Toffees have been tracking the American sensation following his superb form for Barnsley since moving there in January.

Dike made the switch to the MLS from Orlando City on loan for the remainder of the season, and has impressed quite significantly at Oakwell, scoring seven goals in 13 outings, including a brace in their Easter Monday victory over Luton.

King’s Everton deal expires in the summer having only joined on a short-term deal from Bournemouth in January, but Windass believes that it’s more likely Dike, who’s also on Leeds’ radar, would come in to replace Calvert-Lewin.

Calvert-Lewin is enjoying by far the most prolific season of his Toffees career, and is already on a career-high 14 Premier goals despite scoring just three since Christmas.

Windass told the Transfer Tavern:

Only the biggest Everton fan will get 100% on our kits quiz. First up, in which season was Paul Gerrard wearing this colourful goalkeeper jersey?

“He’s going well, and speaking to Mark Crossley, one of my ex-teammates, he said they’re very direct and play to the boy’s strengths.

“I can see him at Everton, I can’t see him at Leeds. I can only see it at Everton if Calvert-Lewin isn’t there. The boy from Barnsley, is it too big of a step at this present time? So Everton I can see, if Calvert-Lewin goes.”

It’s hard to imagine a situation where Calvert-Lewin leaves Everton this summer, but if the Toffees don’t renew King’s contract, then Dike would be a shrewd addition in that sense.

He’s hit the ground running in the Championship, and at just 20-years-old, is already looking quite some player.
