Newcastle United interested in Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Newcastle United have a decent number of English players in their squad at the moment such as Callum Wilson, Matt Targett, Kieran Trippier and Jonjo Shelvey among others.

Now that the summer transfer window is around the corner, it seems as though the Tyneside club are eyeing up another English talent to come in and strengthen their squad.

What’s the news?

According to a recent report from the Daily Mail, Newcastle are “strongly interested” in signing Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer.

The report claimed that Arsenal are also eyeing the Englishman, who is ‘likely to leave Goodison Park’ irrespective of whether or not the Toffees avoid relegation this season.

Back in January, it was reported that Everton had put a £60m price tag on their star striker.

Calvert-Lewin’s career so far

Everton signed the centre-forward from Sheffield United back in 2016 in a deal worth a reported £1.5m. Since then, the 25-year-old has gone on to make 187 appearances for the Merseyside club across all competitions.

In those six years, the England international has found the next 56 times and provided 17 assists along the way.

Who cost Newcastle the most?

Labelled a “cold” player by former Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti, the 2020/21 season showed what a capable striker Calvert-Lewin is at Premier League level.

With 46 shots on target in the league last term, only Harry Kane (47) had more, which goes to show how dangerous the Everton star can be when at his best.

He’d be fabulous for Howe

Newcastle supporters will be very much aware of what the Toffees hitman is capable of producing, as he has delivered more goal contributions against the Magpies than any other team he has faced in his career, with five goals scored and one assist provided in 10 appearances.

Would you take Calvert-Lewin at Newcastle?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Taking into account how Newcastle have only racked up a shot-on-target percentage of 31% this season – the fifth-worst in the Premier League – adding a player like Calvert-Lewin could be just what they need to become a deadlier attacking team in the future.

With the 25-year-old having been described by Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness as a “fabulous” player with “a lot to like about him”, he could be the perfect summer signing for Eddie Howe amid his efforts to push the Toon as far up the league as possible.
