Newcastle: Pete O’Rourke drops Dominic Calvert-Lewin transfer claim

Newcastle: Pete O’Rourke drops Dominic Calvert-Lewin transfer claim -Everton News

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has made a claim involving Newcastle United and their potential pursuit of Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer. 

The lowdown: Hot property

The 25-year-old endured a difficult 2021/22 campaign, missing 16 matches with a fractured toe and also being ruled out of numerous games due to a persistent thigh issue.

Everton struggled for goals in the 6 foot 2 target man’s absence and ultimately found themselves embroiled in a relegation battle, only avoiding the drop in the final week of the Premier League season.

A recent report from The Telegraph has claimed that Newcastle could be plotting a move to land the England international, a claim which has now been backed up by one interested onlooker…

The latest: Newcastle admire Calvert-Lewin

Speaking to Give Me Sport, O’Rourke claimed that the Magpies are indeed among the clubs who are keen on the 11-cap Three Lions star.

He explained: “Calvert-Lewin does have admirers within the Premier League, with the likes of Newcastle and Arsenal. It’s going to be a tough summer for Everton to keep hold of him, but I’m sure they will be looking at top dollar.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Howe would like him

Calvert-Lewin is under contract until 2025 and holds a market value of £37.8m (Transfermarkt), so despite the inevitable lofty asking price, signing him this summer would be the clearest indication yet of where new ownership group PIF want to take Newcastle and just how quickly.

During 2020/21, the Everton marksman scored 16 times and registered three assists in 33 Premier League outings, duly earning high praise from journalist Grant Wahl, who described the 25-year-old’s form as ‘unstoppable’ after the opening weeks of the campaign.

Should Newcastle sign Calvert-Lewin?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If the January signing of Chris Wood was evidence of Eddie Howe wanting a focal point in Newcastle’s attack, Calvert-Lewin’s outstanding average of 7.2 duels won per league game in 2021/22 would further endear the Magpies manager to the possibility of bringing him to St James’ Park.
