Paul Brown: Everton yet to receive any bids for striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Everton are yet to receive any bids for Dominic Calvert-Lewin despite Premier League interest in the striker, according to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.
The Everton striker has been subject to interest from Newcastle United, with The Telegraph reporting on 13 June that the Magpies were quoted £60million when they enquired about the 25-year-old.
Despite speculation over the striker’s Goodison Park future, Brown has insisted that no bids have been tablled and that any future bids aren’t in the pipeline.
He told GIVEMESPORT on 21 June: “Calvert-Lewin’s problem is that the season he’s just had was a bit of a disaster.
“He didn’t play very much, scored a big goal at the end obviously when he came back, but the teams who are interested in him just haven’t seen very much of Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the last few months.
“So, as far as I understand it, Everton haven’t had any bids for him, and it doesn’t look like any are forthcoming in the near future.”
Not a surprise
It doesn’t come as much of a shock to hear of the lack of interest in Calvert-Lewin.
Everton slapping a £60million price tag on the forward is extremely likely to deter any potential suitors from making a bid for the striker.
He endured a fairly miserable 2021/22 campaign so it’s understandable why no one has come in with a concrete bid.
Everton could well be looking to cash in on the 25-year-old, with Calvert Lewin one of the Toffees most valuable assets at present.
If Everton can secure a fee of around £60million for the England striker, then there is every chance that money could be cleverly reinvested into Frank Lampard’s squad.
With cash potentially not in plentiful supply at Goodison Park this summer, it is crucial that Lampard raises some funds to overhaul his squad.
The club hierarchy cannot see a repeat of the the 2021/22 campaign next season, as a new era begins at Goodison Park under the stewardship of Sporting Director Kevin Thelwell.
