Dominic Calvert-Lewin: Arsenal receive big boost in striker pursuit

Arsenal have received a huge boost in their striker search this weekend…

What’s the word?

According to The Sun’s Alan Nixon, Everton are prepared to cash in on mooted Gunners transfer target Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer – and they are prepared to accept less than their £60m asking price.

The 25-year-old features amongst an extensive shortlist as manager Mikel Arteta could do with at least one – if not two – forwards ahead of next season.

West Ham United are also said to be keen on the Toffees talisman.

The deadline day departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the Spanish head coach with only 20 senior stars, in which only two are strikers and both remain out of contract in the summer.

Would Calvert-Lewin be a good signing for Arsenal?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

The man Arteta needs?

Indeed, both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah appear set on departing the Emirates Stadium in the summer as neither player has reached an agreement to extend their expiring deals yet.

It leaves Arteta without a senior frontman and if his side does qualify for Europe next term, that’s a major worry.

However, they have been handed an encouraging boost over Calvert-Lewin, who could be the man to put a stop to this ongoing nightmare in north London.

The England international’s season has largely been hampered by injuries and as such, the Merseyside outfit have struggled for goals and form in his absence.

He kickstarted the campaign with three goals from three appearances but hasn’t been able to find the net in his seven appearances since returning from injury, though in 2020/21, he delivered 21 goals in 39 appearances under the stewardship of a world-class boss in Carlo Ancelotti.

Starting off with an easy one...

Growing up as a huge admirer of Thierry Henry, Calvert-Lewin could be right at home down in the capital and now the Toffees are prepared to accept less for the £40.5m-rated talisman, it would make sense for Edu Gaspar and co to swoop.

“He’s transformed into a complete striker. I remember when I got here he was nothing like the player he is today,” claimed teammate Richarlison. “He must be a nightmare to play against and he has an incredible leap on him like Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Whilst football analyst Statman Dave once described him as a “goal machine” to Twitter.

On the above evidence, the Gunners must now turn their full attention onto the Everton striker ahead of the transfer window reopening in the summer.
