Report: Arsenal keeping tabs on £72k-per-week ace; Gary Neville labelled him a 'top player'
Arsenal are keeping tabs on Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin this transfer window, according to The Telegraph.
The publication is claiming that the Gunners are looking to revamp their forward line with the club keen on the £72k-p/w England international.
Arsenal have been linked with various strikers this summer as questions over Alexandre Lacazette’s future grow.
It’s being claimed the former Lyon man could move on this summer after a lack of consistent first-team starts.
The ace started just 28 games across all competitions as he rotated with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the starring role.
Odsonne Edouard and Alexander Isak have been linked with moves to the club as replacements.
Gary Neville called him a ‘top player’.
TBR View: Calvert-Lewin would be a smart transfer from Arsenal, but his asking price is a worry
This summer is all about smart moves from Arsenal, and Calvert-Lewin would be a clever transfer.
There are a lack of funds this summer after the recent Coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, whilst the forward would be a clever signing, there are worries over his value.
The Mirror have claimed that £50m could be sufficient to sign the ace.
And with central midfield and either full-back being bigger priorities, you’d question whether a move is smart.
Nevertheless, Calvert-Lewin has proven his quality in recent years.
The Englishman has shown off his finishing prowess over the last couple of seasons. Prior to his 25 strikes for club and country last term, the 24-year-old 15 times the season before.
However, the most crucial aspect of his game is his hold play, which would make him an asset for Arteta.
Amid links with Calvert-Lewin, there’s no question he’d be a quality acquistion for the club. However, his asking price makes a move extremely difficult and proves worrying.
