La Liga giants Real Madrid are eyeing an insane move for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Everton’s hot form has seen many heroes rise. Players such as James Rodriguez, Michael Keane, Lucas Digne and Richarlison have performed exceptionally well, giving thrust to the Everton engine. But, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the one who has attracted the most attention because of his breathtaking goalscoring.
Calvert-Lewin is quickly becoming a household name and is being watched by everyone across Europe. Neutral fans or even Premier League opponents are acknowledging the fact that the Englishman is on a roll.
The numbers speak for itself. DCL has scored 7 goals in 5 games and 3 goals in 2 EFL Cup games, taking his total tally to 10 goals. At this moment, he seems to be an unstoppable force marauding through defences and scoring goals for fun.
It’s not just the numbers that justify Calvert-Lewin’s supreme form. He looks a more matured, developed player than last season. His physical presence offered up the pitch is evident, the running down the channels to actually result in a productive move and most importantly the 23 year old has become radiantly instinctive in front of the goal.

When a player takes such a giant leap on the world stage, European top dogs notice. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has started to catch the attention of clubs across Europe. According to Calciomercato, La Liga giants Real Madrid are eyeing Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Los Blancos are even ready with a bag of cash containing £36 million for the Englishman’s services.
Now, this could just be a rumour but we can’t neglect the fact that sooner or later clubs will look into the prospect of signing him if he continues to dazzle at this rate. Evertonians may not worry just yet as DCL looks focused on the project at Goodison and just last year committed his future at Merseyside till 2025.
But, for rising players like Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, it is important that Everton under Ancelotti make progress in their aspirations. A repeat of the last few years’ mediocrities will not help Everton.
This season, the early signs are very optimistic. One can anticipate that something big is brewing. The Toffees need to keep up the momentum or else it won’t be long that the world class talent already present may start looking elsewhere.
Nonetheless, there’s no way Everton will let Dominic Calvert-Lewin go. Whether the offer is £36 million or £150 million, DCL is an integral part of the team and letting him go will be like shooting yourself in the foot.
