Report: Newcastle still think they can sign 'brilliant' £60m man this summer with PIF hoping patience pays off
Newcastle United remain in the hunt to sign a new attacking player to add to their squad and could yet end up signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The Everton striker is on the wishlist of a few clubs this summer. Calvert-Lewin remains part of the Toffees’ squad after Richarlison was sold to Tottenham. However, there are still financial worries at Everton and Calvert-Lewin remains one of their more saleable assets.
And according to a report from 90Min, Newcastle United believe they can still get their hands on Calvert-Lewin if they remain patient in the window. It’s suggested that there is a belief from Newcastle and others that Everton will need to sell someone else soon. And Calvert-Lewin, of course, could fetch around £60m.
Newcastle’s interest in Calvert-Lewin has been lingering all summer. Indeed, it was only a few months ago that reports suggested that the Toon were adamant the England striker wanted to join them.
Lauded as ‘brilliant‘ by none other than Newcastle legend Alan Shearer, Calvert-Lewin missed a big chunk of last season through injury. However, he returned at the back end to help inspire a great escape for the Goodison Park outfit.
TBR’s View: Calvert-Lewin Would Do Well At Newcastle
Despite having Chris Wood on the books, Calvert-Lewin would bring a bit more mobility to the front line for Newcastle United.
Yes, he has struggled to find consistency in terms of goals at times, but he is a handful for defenders and with a World Cup in a few months, he’d be keen to impress as well.
Calvert-Lewin would, of course, cost Newcastle a hefty chunk of change. But sooner or later PIF are going to sanction a big money buy at the club and it wouldn’t be a surprise for it to be Calvert-Lewin.
