Everton should ask Newcastle for Callum Wilson if they come for Calvert-Lewin

Newcastle are looking forward to a promising few transfer windows now with new owners PIF in place and a new manager set to be appointed in the coming days.

The Toon Army are excited. A host of players are being linked with the club and it seems only a matter of time before we start seeing some big transfer activity on Tyneside.

One of the names already being touted is England and Everton striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The Telegraph claims that Newcastle are keen on the big striker, alongside Arsenal and Manchester United.

Of course, Everton won’t sell cheaply. It’s been claimed before that the Toffees will want at least £50m for their man. However, could Newcastle have a potential bargaining chip up their sleeve that could interest Everton in the form of Callum Wilson?

The Toffees are known admirers of the striker. Indeed, they even tried to sign him from Bournemouth before Wilson chose to move to Newcastle back in 2019.

Risks

For Newcastle now, part of their strategy is going to involve signing a few players who will represent high risks, and some who are low risk. Of course, Calvert-Lewin is a low-risk signing, in terms of his proven ability at this level anyway.

Here, the risk comes in the form of the money they pay. Do they lump up the £50m+? Or do they look to do a smarter deal and include certain players in return to the Toffees? Wilson, then, would certainly interest Everton.

On the flipside, Newcastle fans wouldn’t be overly pleased to see Wilson even mentioned here. He’s one of a few to come out with credit from the Steve Bruce era. Moving him on, then, seems baffling.

But the counter argument to that is for Newcastle to move forward and get big-name signings, then people might have to go. And at the moment, nobody – even the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin – are 100% safe on Tyneside.

Certainly, if Calvert-Lewin is of serious interest to the Toon, then offering up Wilson and a nice chunk of cash alongside, could well stir the powers that be at Goodison Park. Because in reality, that’s the sort of bid it should take for the Toffees to even consider selling their start man.
