Arsenal legend Ian Wright said on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5live on Monday evening (7pm, September 18, 2017) that Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin is just a couple of goals away from getting confidence.
Calvert-Lewin has been on the books of Everton since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Sheffield United for a transfer fee reported by The Liverpool Echo to be worth £1.5 million.
The England Under-21 international forward made five starts in the Premier League for Everton last season, scoring one goal in the process.
So far this campaign, the talented and promising young player has made five appearances in the league for the Toffees, two of them being starts.
Calvert-Lewin has also played once in the Europa League for Everton this season, but the youngster has yet to score a competitive goal for Ronald Koeman’s side in 2017-18.
Former Arsenal striker Wright believes that Calvert-Lewin will get more confident if he scores a couple of goals.
“I think he is just a couple of goals away to get some confidence to feel like he belongs where he is,” said Wright about Calvert-Lewin on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5live on Monday evening (7pm, September 18, 2017).
“I am not saying that he is going to be the answer because I think that Everton need somebody to score goals.”
