Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin may view moving to north London as a step down, says former England international Paul Stewart.
Calvert-Lewin is not currently being linked with a move to the Carabao Cup finalists; however, some have suggested that he could be a good option for them if they lose Harry Kane this summer.
The 24-year-old, though, is not a player Everton will want to lose. He was one of the leading strikers in the Premier League last season after scoring 16 goals in 33 appearances.
Should Zaha be a priority for Everton?
And even if the Toffees were open to a sale, Stewart is not too sure Calvert-Lewin would be too keen on the idea of joining Spurs in this moment of time.
“Calvert-Lewin at Everton. Would he leave Everton for Spurs? He may see that as a step down at the moment,” Stewart said in an exclusive interview with TT.
Indeed, there are a lot of ifs and buts. However, if Tottenham were to lose Kane, Calvert-Lewin is probably the kind of forward they should be looking at as a replacement.
The England international is Premier League proven, starting to become more prolific and is such an aerial threat, with WhoScored listing his heading ability as a strength.
