Report: Arsenal want to sign £50m ace who has 'all the attributes of Ronaldo'
Arsenal have reportedly picked out their number one target for next summer in the form of Everton striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, according to reports.
Football.London have claimed that while interest from the Gunners end is already known when it comes to Calvert-Lewin, Edu and Mikel Arteta view the England striker as their priority for the summer.
It is thought Arsenal are looking for long-term replacements for both Aubameyang and Lacazette. The latter is set to leave this summer, with no new contract agreed. Aubameyang, meanwhile, is now into his 30s.
Football.London, then, claims £50m-rated Calvert-Lewin is now the number one target for Arsenal. The former Sheffield United striker has enjoyed a fine rise in recent seasons at Everton, and scored 16 Premier League goals last season. He has already hit three in three this term, too.
Arsenal spent big money in the summer just gone on young, up and coming talent from England. The likes of Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale arrived, while Lokonga and Tavares came in from abroad.
TBR’s View: Calvert-Lewin is perfect for Arsenal
When you talk about ready-made Premier League number nines, you can’t really look past the Everton man. He has everything needed to be a top forward and is already one, in fairness.
You also have to remember this is a forward who’s been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo as well. Anyone getting those sorts of comments, is worth attention.
A new striker is big for Arsenal in the summer. In Calvert-Lewin, they’d get presence, pace, and a knowhow in front of goal. And even if it does cost £50m+, it could prove money well spent.
