Calvert-Lewin to reject new Everton contract amid interest from Man United

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin could leave the club this summer amid interest from Manchester United.

The 27-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Goodison Park and has indicated he will not sign a new deal with the Toffees (h/t The Athletic).

Calvert-Lewin is trying to leverage his contract situation to drum up interest from potential suitors, and Everton are open to selling him.

A deal worth around £30 million is considered plausible, with Everton keen to recoup a significant sum from his sale rather than lose him on a free transfer next year.

Everton signed the striker from Sheffield United for £1.5m in 2016, and he has served the club reasonably well during his eight-year spell at Goodison Park.

United have emerged as a possible destination for Calvert-Lewin, although they have reservations about his hugely concerning injury record.

Selling Calvert-Lewin for around £30m will represent a huge profit for Everton, and they’ll be eager to reinvest the proceeds into strengthening Sean Dyche’s squad.

The Toffees have been active this summer, signing Tim Ireogbunam from Aston Villa, Iliman Ndiaye from Olympique Marseille and re-signing Jack Harrison on loan from Leeds United.

They are embroiled in a three-way tussle with Villa and newly promoted Ipswich Town for coveted Hull City star Jaden Philogene.

Ipswich already have a deal in place with Hull and have agreed personal terms with the talented forward, but Everton are still in contention to win the race for his signature.
