AS Roma offered chance to sign Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin

AS Roma have been offered the chance to sign Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Giallorossi continue their hunt for a new centre-forward following the long-term injury to start striker Tammy Abraham.

Calvert-Lewin’s name has cropped up on Roma’s radar, but they are only willing to take him on loan with an option to buy later.

The English striker was tipped for big things following his prolific 2020/21 campaign under Carlo Ancelotti, where he scored 21 goals across all competitions.

However, what followed was a steep decline, with Calvert-Lewin struggling to find any sort of momentum due to frequent injury problems over the last two seasons.

The 26-year-old has a contract until 2025, and the Toffees are open to his exit this summer.

Calvert-Lewin is excited about the prospect of plying his trade under Jose Mourinho.

The Toffees have been continuously scouring the market for a new striker, and they could sanction Calvert-Lewin’s exit once they add reinforcements.

Roma are still looking at West Ham United striker Gianluca Scamacca as their priority target ahead of next season.

The Italian striker is keen on leaving the Hammers and has previously declared his willingness to sign for Giallorossi.

However, they face a tough battle from Inter Milan, who are pushing hard to land the former Saussolo star.

Scamacca’s recent comments may worry Roma as he has changed his stance from wanting them as his next destination to being open-minded about his next club.

Roma are close to finalising a new contract for Paulo Dybala, meaning they will remove the low release clauses in his current deal.
