That is according to a report from the Telegraph who claim the 11-cap England international has caught the eye of David Moyes’ side.
Though there are a couple of potential stumbling blocks that are mentioned in the report.
Firstly, West Ham’s competition in the form of Newcastle United and Arsenal renders them bottom in terms of financial ability, which transitions into perhaps the biggest stumbling block – the £50m fee that Everton will demand for the 25-year-old forward.
As stated in the report, it’s a fee that presents a lot of risk for a striker who clearly has ability, but has endured an injury-plagued campaign.
If West Ham were able to negotiate a lower price for Calvert-Lewin, a player dubbed “unbelievable” by Oliver Holt, Moyes would seal a tremendous coup and would also unearth a mouth-watering partnership in the process.
The 25-year-old has indeed suffered with injuries this season but managed to prove the campaign prior his potency in front of goal – having managed 16 goals from 33 appearances, living up to the tag of a “nightmare” in the words of Richarlison.
Seven of his returns were in the form of headed goals, which will be music to the ears of Aaron Cresswell who is not only on corner duty for Moyes’ side but is an exquisite crosser of the ball from open play also.
The link up between the two is not obvious and represents an unorthodox approach in the eyes of some.
But when you look at the potency of full-backs in the modern system, merged with the technical ability of a player like Cresswell – you get the impression that a traditional poacher like Calvert-Lewin would have a field day in the claret and blue of West Ham.
