Tony Cascarino has suggested that Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin could play a big role moving forward at Goodison Park.
The Toffees now have high-profile manager Carlo Ancelotti in charge and there is a lot of attention to see how he fares at Goodison Park.
He started his reign with a 1-0 home victory over Burnley in the Premier League and the team sit 13th in the table.
Calvert-Lewin’s impressive header secured the three points for the Merseyside outfit and he’s proven his aerial threat in the past on a number of occasions.
The 22-year-old centre-forward now has eight goals across all competitions so far this campaign and is in a decent vein of form.
Pundit Cascarino believes that the English attacker has the attributes to succeed under Italian boss Ancelotti.
“The 22-year-old is strong in the air, winning his fair share of flick-ons, knockdowns and causing centre halves all sorts of problems,” Cascarino wrote in the Times.
“He has at times struggled with the demands of filling the void left by Romelu Lukaku and has not been helped by the lack of service from wide areas.
“He has the fundamental attributes to lead the line and has a massive future under Ancelotti at Goodison Park.”
Calvert-Lewin is not the most eye-catching forward in the Premier League, but he’s proving to be effective and it will be no surprise to see him thrive off Ancelotti’s arrival.
He will get the opportunity to work with an elite coach that has a mouth-watering CV and he’s going to get the best out of so many players.
Calvert-Lewin gets into so many goalscoring opportunities in games and just needs to be more clinical, while there is no questioning his work-rate or desire for the team.
