Newcastle United are looking to continue their squad rebuild by making a move for Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the summer transfer window, according to The Telegraph.

 

Calvert-Lewin has had a season to forget so far for the Blues, missing a total of 16 Premier League games due to a fractured toe, finding the net only thrice in the league.

The 25-year-old had a breakthrough 2019-20 season, netting 13 goals in the Premier League. The following season saw the striker further establish himself as one of the most reliable players in the penalty box with his 16 goals tally. 

 

First-choice striker Callum Wilson has had his struggles with injuries this season, and the arrival of Calvert-Lewin will help bolster Howe’s options and provide competition among the pair. 

 

Newcastle found themselves in a sticky spot earlier in the season, when relegation looked like a realistic possibility. But, the arrival of the new Saudi owners helped turn around a dismal season into an exciting one, with Eddie Howe coming in to replace Steve Bruce and winter transfers Bruno Guimaraes, Kieran Trippier, Matt Target and Chris Wood, costing a total of £94m, all coming in to help take the Magpies up the table. 

 

Recently, Howe admitted that despite Newcastle being the richest club in the world, they can’t spend money on players however they want, due to Financial Fair Play(FFP) restraints.
