Arsenal boosted in their pursuit of Premier League No.9 forward

By | May 21, 2022

Everton manager Frank Lampard is prepared to cash in on striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the end of the term, opening the door to a possible move to Arsenal, reports say.

After an excellent season, last term in which he hit 16 goals the Englishman has endured an injury-plagued and more difficult year in the 2021/22 campaign, scoring just three times.

With the player’s form having dipped off massively, The Sun state that the Toffees will look to offload Dominic in the summer.

Frank wants to overhaul his playing roster and staff in a big way in the summer and slashing the side’s payroll is a necessary first step.

The Merseysiders have a host of high-earning players who aren’t justifying their salaries and the 25-year-old has fallen into this category off the back of a poor season.

Lampard is ready to let up to three ‘big hitters’ go this summer and wants to reinvest the money in new recruits.

The Gunners have long been interested in him and Mikel Arteta has made a new number nine their top transfer priority.

The Premier League side still look likely to lose the two remaining senior centre-forwards with both stars out of contract at the end of the term and want to bring in two new players in the final third.
