Everton: Report provides Dominic Calvert-Lewin update

Everton: Report provides Dominic Calvert-Lewin update -Everton News

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin could be set to play his final game for the club this weekend, according to a report from Football Insider

The lowdown: Wanted man

The 25-year-old looks certain to be a sought after commodity in the upcoming transfer window amidst reported interest from West Ham and Newcastle United.

Despite scoring the goal that secured the Toffee’s top-flight status next season, the 2021/22 campaign has been a wholly forgettable one for Calvert-Lewin, having missed 16 games with a fractured toe prior to thigh issues that also kept the frontman sidelined for a prolonged spell.

Now as the Blues prepare for their final Premier League outing of the term against Arsenal, the powerful centre-forward could be hoping to impress his next club…

The latest: Summer move inevitable

As per a Football Insider recruitment source, Calvert Lewin is believed to be ‘eager for a new challenge’ this summer.

It’s also claimed the 11-cap England man is ‘likely’ to leave Everton and it’s Arsenal and Newcastle who ‘lead the race’ as things stand.

Valued at £37.8million and under contract until 2025 (Transfermarkt), the Goodison Park hierarchy will no doubt hold out for hefty bids in order to sanction the departure of the man billed as a ‘complete striker’ by ex-Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti.

The verdict: Decision to be made

Following the high of Thursday night’s comeback victory, the reality of resolving the uncertain futures of Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison will soon be at the forefront of manager Frank Lampard and Director of Football Kevin Thelwell’s minds.

This season, the Englishman scored five times and provided one assist in 17 appearances across all competitions, way short of the 26 direct goal contributions from 2020/21.

Should Everton have hired Lampard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, since arriving on Merseyside, Lampard has looked to employ an ‘exciting’ three-pronged attack when possible with a central figurehead, a role Calvert-Lewin’s target man attributes would be ideally suited to occupying if the star is willing to work under the new manager beyond this injury-hit campaign.

Should Lampard and co. be unable to persuade the talismanic ace to stay, Everton must ensure they extract every possible penny from the deal in order to reinvest properly.
