Everton makes shock Dominic Calvert-Lewin transfer settlement as Arsenal target striker.

Everton makes shock Dominic Calvert-Lewin transfer settlement as Arsenal target striker.

Everton would be ready to trade Dominic Calvert-Lewin if they receive a good offer this summer, according to reports.

Arsenal are associated with a move for Calvert-Lewin as a possible replacement for Alexandre Lacazette with the Gunner’s no. 9 contract at the Emirates is set to lapse in the summer of 2022.

Calvert-Lewin was Everton’s top scorer last term having nicked in 21 goals in all competitions.

The England ace tailed off towards the second half of the campaign after a blistering start in the Premier League.

Calvert-Lewin, who has made one substitute display at Euro 2020 so far, has scored 36 times in the last two seasons at club level.
The 24-year-old signed a new deal at Goodison Park in March 2020 to keep him at the club until 2025.

However, speaking on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast, Duncan Castles says Everton’s shock stance is that they could be open to selling the striker.

The revelation could alert Arsenal who have a decision to make over the future of Lacazette, with The Telegraph reporting the Gunners’ interest in Calvert-Lewin.

“Normally you would think when you have a player of that type, you’d want to do everything to retain him,” Castles said of Calvert-Lewin.

“But actually the guidance I have is there is a sense within Everton that Calvert-Lewin is very valuable and they wonder whether he’s reached the peak of his development.

“Now my personal view, and it’s not relevant, is I see him as still improving, I like what I see.

“But the experts within Everton have a sense that perhaps he’s reached his peak and if they’re going to cash in on the player, this is the time to do it.

“And if they get a good offer this summer, then they would seriously consider selling him.

“So I think it’s one to definitely pay attention to.”

After coming off the bench against Croatia in the tournament first game, Calvert-Lewin did not star in the games against Scotland and the Czech Republic.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s group finale, England manager Gareth Southgate spoke of his delight at his options up top.

“I’m sure Harry [Kane] is going to be playing for us and is going to have a big impact [tonight] so I’m not worried about that,” Southgate told reporters.

“Are we pleased to have Dominic in our squad? Yeah, absolutely.

“He’s a very good centre-forward and he had a big impact for us in the Autumn so it’s good we’ve got him and Marcus [Rashford] who can play as nines in the team.


“They understand in terms of their challenge with Harry.


“Obviously Marcus can play wide as well, but they understand who our best number nine is and the scoring pedigree and the importance to the team of Harry’s status and his role for us.”
