His tenure at Goodison Park could be coming to an end.
Everton are now willing to accept an offer for a “fantastic” player during the summer transfer window, with the possibility of leveraging his sale to raise finances rather than selling Amadou Onana or Jarrad Branthwaite.

Everton expected to sell-to-buy this summer

The Blues scored a crucial 1-0 Premier League victory at home to Burnley on Saturday, significantly increasing their chances of continuing in the top level beyond this season. That could depend on any additional point deductions they receive during what has been a tough season both on and off the field.

When the season comes to a conclusion, Everton may lose a number of key players, partly due to financial constraints, but also, in some cases, out of choice.

Onana is the man most frequently linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer, with Barcelona, Arsenal, and Newcastle United all reportedly interested in a big-money deal for the midfielder. However, the Merseysiders are unlikely to accept anything less than a large deal, and the same is true for Branthwaite, who is reputedly valued at £80 million.

Jordan Pickford is another player who may feel like he needs a new challenge at this point in his career, having always been in relegation battles rather than contending for major trophies, but it appears the club is seeking for another asset to cash in on this summer.

Everton to accept £40m offers for “fantastic” ace

According to Football Insider, Everton are likely to accept an offer for Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer as long as it exceeds £40 million. It is suggested that “Sean Dyche’s side could be forced to accept a lower offer than their new valuation amid their continued financial struggles”, thus anything at or over the rumored price tag would be a significant boost.

Calvert-Lewin’s career has taken a plunge in recent years, despite appearing to be such a promising prospect during the 2020/21 season, when he scored 16 goals in 32 Premier League games. Injuries have hindered him since then, and he has struggled this season, scoring only five goals in 27 league appearances.

It appears to be the appropriate time for Everton to cash in on him, given his fitness issues, which make it difficult for him to have extended runs in the team, and at 27 years old, it makes sense to accept the money now rather than wait until he is too old to receive good money.

Calvert-Lewin’s potential as a striker is undeniable, with former Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti hailing him as “fantastic,” but the Blues should sell him, offload his £100,000-a-week contract, and acquire a younger, less injury-prone replacement.
