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.’
The Verdict: A risk?
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.
