According to iNews, Everton still fear that Newcastle United will table a bid to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin before this summer’s transfer window shuts.

It is no secret that the Magpies are desperate to bring in a new striker.

Hugo Ekitike is one name they have been heavily linked with since January, but irrespective of what happens with the talented Frenchman, Eddie Howe should consider signing an experienced centre-forward.

Calvert-Lewin, branded as a ‘fantastic‘ striker by Carlo Ancelotti, certainly checks a lot of boxes, and the Magpies have been rumoured to be interested in signing the Everton man this summer.

Calvert-Lewin has been the subject of a lot of interest from multiple clubs in the Premier League. Arsenal were heavily linked, but it look like Mikel Arteta has turned his attention to Gabriel Jesus now.

That opens the door for Newcastle to try their luck to sign Englishman, and reports even revealed earlier this month that Howe will be bidding for Calvert-Lewin in the coming weeks.

Now, the report claims that Everton are bracing themselves for a bid from Newcastle for Calvert-Lewin. The Toffees are said to be in a vulnerable position as they’ve to satisfy Financial Fairplay regulations, and that’s the reason why they’re worried clubs like Newcastle will make a move for their star striker.

The Magpies are definitely not wrong to take advantage of the situation that Everton are in, but it won’t be easy for Howe’s side as the Toffees reportedly value their number nine at an eye-watering £85 million.

Should Newcastle United sign Calvert-Lewin? Yes! Is he worth £85 million? Probably not.

Calvert-Lewin still has three years left on his Everton contract and that puts the Toffees in a fairly strong position in potential transfer negotiations. They may even try to increase their asking price because they know for a fact that Newcastle and their new owners can afford it.

The one thing that’s certain is that Calvert-Lewin will make Newcastle a much better side. He’s a level above someone like Chris Wood, and the fact that he’s still only 25 means he’ll only get better in the coming years.

If an opportunity presents itself for Newcastle to sign Calvert-Lewin this summer, they shouldn’t think twice!
