'Take him tomorrow': Darren Bent says Arsenal have to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Former Tottenham and England striker, Darren Bent, has said that he would take Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Arsenal ‘tomorrow’ if the chance to sign the forward arose.
Calvert-Lewin has been linked with a move to the Emirates, with The Times reporting yesterday that Arsenal see the Everton man as their number one target for the summer. Calvert-Lewin is currently out injured, but has built a fine reputation in the Premier League.
The impressive striker scored 21 across all competitions last season. That form helped him into the England squad for the Euros, although he played little part in the end. It has been suggested Everton could demand more than £50m for their man.
And according to Talksport pundit and self-proclaimed Arsenal fan, Darren Bent. Calvert-Lewin would be ideal for Arsenal.
“I’d take him tomorrow at Arsenal. And you know why it is? Because you know what you’re getting with him,” Bent said on Talksport.
“He works hard, he can hold the ball up, he can score goals, he’s unbelievable in the air. I think he’s got the potential to play however Arsenal want to play him. And he’s at a good age as well, good presence. Yeah, I’d take him.”
Calvert-Lewin could follow fellow young players like Aaron Ramsdale and Ben White to the Gunners. Both signed in the summer, and both have impressed thus far.
TBR’s View: Calvert-Lewin is perfect for Arsenal, Bent is right
If you want someone to press and lead the line with hard work and attitude, then Calvert-Lewin is definitely the man for the job. We’ve seen how good he can be at Everton, so he could thrive with the likes of Saka and Smith Rowe around him.
Arsenal have shown they’ll spend big on the right player, too. So if ‘DCL’ is available, then they simply have to make their move.
Darren Bent is right here as well. Calvert-Lewin would bring so much to the table for the Gunners.
