Newcastle have “enquired” about deal for Dominic Calvert-Lewin

An update has emerged on Newcastle United and their interest in signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

Journalist Ben Jacobs has revealed that the Magpies have made contact with Everton over a potential deal to sign the attacker, although his valuation may cause issues.

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Newcastle have enquired on Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but Everton are reluctant to sell and the 60 million price tag is pretty high.

“Ivan Toney won’t happen unless Brentford significantly drop their valuation. Newcastle already enquired and were put off by the 50 million asking price.”

Big Chris Wood upgrade

Newcastle must work hard to convince the Toffees to part ways with the England international for a fee that they are willing to spend this summer.

The forward would be a brilliant addition to the squad as he is a proven Premier League goalscorer, having showcased his qualities over the last few years.

Tottenham attacker Richarlison previously hailed his former teammate’s ability. The Brazilian said: “He’s had a superb start to the season and without doubt deserved his England call-up. He must be a nightmare to play against and he has an incredible leap on him like Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Despite struggling with injury issues, he managed to score five goals and set up two in 15 top-flight starts last season for Everton. This came after he plundered 16 goals in 32 starts in 2020/21 and 13 goals in 36 outings the year before that.

The gem also offers a focal point at the top end of the pitch due to his ability in the air. He won 5.5 aerial duels per game last term and can provide an out-ball for defenders to clear the ball up the pitch to alleviate pressure in tight matches.

How many 2021/22 Premier League goals did Newcastle score?

He would be a big upgrade on misfiring forward Chris Wood, who struggled after his move from Burnley in January earlier this year.

The New Zealand international scored two goals in 17 Premier League games for the Magpies and ended the campaign with five goals in 34 outings for the two clubs he played for combined.

This suggests that Calvert-Lewin would offer far more than him in terms of goalscoring, as he has proven that he can be a consistent scorer during his time at Everton.

In terms of being a target man, Wood won 6.0 aerial battles per match and this means that he was marginally better than Calvert-Lewin in that respect, whilst being far behind him in front of goal.
