Newcastle: Magpies eyeing Dominic Calvert-Lewin move

Newcastle: Magpies eyeing Dominic Calvert-Lewin move -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are thought to be keen on signing Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin this month, according to The Sun.

The Lowdown: Wood’s pending exit?

It looks as if the Magpies are about to move on one of their three senior central attacking options in Chris Wood. The 31-year-old could be set to sign for Nottingham Forest after an initial loan deal was agreed upon between the two clubs on Thursday.

That will leave Eddie Howe with Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak, but it appears as if the club may look to replace Wood with Calvert-Lewin.

The Latest: Calvert-Lewin interest

The Sun shared a story on Thursday regarding Newcastle and Calvert-Lewin. They claimed that Howe is eyeing a £35m move for the Toffees forward, with Everton bracing themselves for offers.

The report adds that Newcastle ‘want the 25-year-old this month but would be willing to wait until the summer if a deal can’t be reached.’

Toon fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 2022 calendar year?

The Verdict: A risk?

Calvert-Lewin, sponsored by Nike, has endured a number of injury problems over the last 18 months, so you could say that a potential big-money transfer may well be a gamble.

The striker has made just 26 Premier League appearances since the beginning of the 2021/22 campaign, spending time on the sidelines with toe and knee injuries.

Wilson and Isak have also had their respective hamstring injury issues in recent months, but it looks as if Howe and Newcastle may make their move for Calvert-Lewin regardless of his fitness struggles.
