AFC Bournemouth have been linked with an intriguing move for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
After lifting the Under 20’s World Cup during the summer of 2017 with England alongside AFC Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook, Calvert-Lewin broke into the Everton side under former manager Sam Allardyce.
He went on to make 44 appearances, scoring 8 times, with 4 coming in the Premier League.
Despite the signing of Wayne Rooney, Calvert-Lewin was Everton’s main striker following the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United until the £27million signing of Cenk Tosun.
With the 21-year-old seemingly now dropping down the pecking order, AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has reportedly inquired about his availability. However, according to the Mirror at least, the young striker has opted to stay at Everton and fight for his place.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin to snub Bournemouth to fight for his Everton future – the headline read before adding…
MirrorSport understands Calvert-Lewin,21, is preparing to return to Everton for pre-season with the intention of impressing new boss Marco Silva.
Silva is expected to preside over a shake-up at Goodison Park to help clear the decks and give younger players more of a chance.
But whilst Silva is expected to give youth a chance at Goodison Park, it would seem unlikely that it would be at the expense of a £27million signing, so perhaps this one is one to keep an eye on just in case Silva isn’t impressed by the young England international?
