Everton: Toffees willing to sell Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Everton: Toffees willing to sell Dominic Calvert-Lewin -Everton News

According to The Mirror, Everton are reportedly willing to sell star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the summer transfer window.

The Lowdown: Calvert-Lewin’s recent form

The 25-year-old has suffered an inconsistent season due to a number of injuries, thereby contributing to Everton’s woes in front of goal. The forward suffered a fractured toe which kept him out for no fewer than 125 days, missing a grand total of 16 games.

As a result, Calvert-Lewin has failed to score a single Premier League goal since August, when he netted three on the bounce in the Toffees’ opening three games.

The Latest: Everton willing to sell

According to a report by The Mirror, Everton are now willing to sell Calvert-Lewin in the summer, whose £72,000-per-week contract runs until the summer of 2025.

Both Arsenal and West Ham have been named as potential suitors, although no approaches have yet been made.

The Verdict: Most important player?

Everton would be silly to sell their star striker if they are to remain in the Premier League, with the division’s all-time leading scorer Alan Shearer claiming that the 25-year-old will “keep scoring goals”.

In 184 games for the Merseyside club, Calvert-Lewin has scored 56 goals. Furthermore, his importance to the Toffees’ creativity in the final third is unparalleled with any other Everton player.

Should Everton have hired Lampard?

Yes

No

No

This is illustrated by his statistics, where he ranks in the 97th percentile for total shots, the 96th percentile for pass completion and the 89th percentile for progressive carries (via FB Ref), demonstrating the attacking output that he adds to the team.

Therefore, this seems like a premature call to make. Even though Calvert-Lewin’s form has dipped in recent months, the above figures illustrate that he remains one of Everton’s most important players. Let’s not forget that he whacked in 21 goals last season, after all…
