Arsenal and Chelsea keen on landing Everton star

Calvert-Lewin wanted by EPL giants

Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly interested in landing the signature of Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The Gunners are currently uncertain over the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah. They have entered the final year of their contracts.

Both players could be sold this summer. The Gunners have a readymade replacement for Nketiah in young graduate Folarin Balogun.

Meanwhile, the club consider Calvert-Lewin as a potential replacement for Lacazette, who is on the radar of Atletico Madrid.

Calvert-Lewin had his best campaign for the Toffees last term, registering 21 goals from 39 appearances across all competitions.

He has been linked with a possible exit this summer. A fee of around £50 million could seriously test the Toffees' resolve.

Aside from the Gunners, Chelsea are also interested in the marksman as they look to bolster their centre-forward department.

They are set to part ways with Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi. Calvert-Lewin is reportedly on their shortlist.
