Former Everton striker Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that his former side would struggle to reject £80m for Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Calvert-Lewin has enjoyed his most prolific season in a Toffees shirt following his move from Sheffield United.
He’s scored 21 goals in all competitions, 16 of which have come in the Premier League, with only Harry Kane, Mo Salah, Bruno Fernandes, and Heung Min Son scoring more than the Sheffield-born frontman this term.
United recently signed up Edinson Cavani for another season, but with Anthony Martial reportedly on his way out of Old Trafford, the Red Devils still want to bolster their strike department in a bid to try and close the gap on rivals Manchester City.
Harry Kane has also been touted as a potential addition but Bent told Football FanCast that should United match Everton’s hefty asking-price, rejecting it would be difficult:
“Speaking to the club, his game has come on leaps and bounds – his hold-up play, his touch, his reading of the game, his finishing.
“£80m, I think he’s probably worth that. But Manchester United, they’re world class, competing for the Premier League, playing in Europe. But, with DCL, turning down £80m is hard, especially for Everton.”
