Multiple reports have confirmed Arsenal interest in Dominic Calvert-Lewin for next summer, though the striker won’t be cheap.
The Mirror report that Arsenal are ready to target Dominic Calvert-Levin as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette next summer.
The Gunners are reportedly already closely following potential signings to take Lacazette’s spot in the squad, and Calvert-Lewin is high on their list.
The Daily Mail report something similar, claiming Arsenal want Calvert-Lewin to spreadhead the next phase of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side.
Calvert-Lewin was also on Arsenal’s radar in the summer, but it was impossible for them to do a deal at the time.
Everton would want £60m or more to sell the striker, so he certainly isn’t going to come cheap. But Arsenal are going to need to invest up front, that much seems pretty certain.
The reliable Paul Joyce of The Times has also weighed in to confirm that Arsenal are one of Calvert-Lewin’s suitors ahead of next summer.
Though, again, the suggestion is that he wouldn’t come cheap, with his deal lasting to 2025.
Once in June and again in October, The Telegraph also claimed Arsenal were known to be keen on Calvert-Lewin.
At this point, the list of dissenting outlets is growing small. It really does seem like there’s too much smoke to rule out a fire.
Calvert-Lewin scored three goals in his first three games of the current campaign, but he’s been out of action ever since with injury. He’s unlikely to return until next month.
