Everton attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has very much been a squad player at Goodison Park so far this season, with spells in and out of the starting XI all season.
But the 21-year-old should not be underestimated and has the potential to become a pivotal player of the Marco Silva era.
The centre-forward is currently enjoying a decent run in the side and so far this campaign he’s scored five goals in 18 games across all competitions.
He was unable to score when he spearheaded the attack in the 5-1 win over Burnley on Boxing Day, but showed so much more than that to leave supporters pleased his display.
Calvert-Lewin offered a real physical presence at striker and it seems like many forget how young the England Under-21 international really is.
He’s an attacker improving on a weekly basis and has the perfect mentor in Silva to oversee his development, while he’s still managing to chip in with goals in the Premier League.
The highly-rated ace may not quite be ready to be the first-choice striker on a weekly basis, but is giving a great account of himself and is definitely a key first teamer in attack.
Everton signed Calvert-Lewin for just £1.5million (Sky Sports) back in 2016 and he is certainly proving to be an incredible bargain.
Silva needs to build a formidable squad if the Merseyside club are to become European contenders during his era and there is no reason why Calvert-Lewin can’t continue to grow under him.
