Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin looks set to stay at Goodison Park.
Everton have yet to get going in the transfer market this summer, and as much as fans will be focused on new signings this summer, departures will also be coming.
The Toffees have a huge squad, and with manager Marco Silva and director of football Marcel Brands looking for reinforcements, there could be a mini-exodus on the cards.
The Mirror recently reported that as many as 12 players could be heading for the Everton exit, and one player not named on that list has been the subject of interest this week.
Reports from The Mirror earlier this week suggested that Bournemouth have been attempting to land Everton hitman Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but the Toffees forward intends to stay at Goodison Park.
Calvert-Lewin, 21, joined Everton from Sheffield United back in the summer of 2016, and featured prominently this season, hitting seven goals and six assists in 40 games.
The youngster worked hard in attack under Ronald Koeman and even played out wide when needed, whilst he has also become an England Under-21 international regular with the Toffees.
Calvert-Lewin appears to be staying with Everton, and fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that they are happy with that news, because the forward has great potential to become a top four-calibre player, and believe he should be kept around even if he did want to leave.
Others believe that Calvert-Lewin won't get much better though and think Everton should be prepared to cash in this summer, leaving supporters somewhat split on the forward's future.
Really surprised how little some rate DCL. He done unbelievably well last year give the state of the club, it was his debut season and he was probably promoted a season too early. Hes got potential to be a quality No9/No10 an top 4 potential in yrs to come. Hopefully wit #EFC— Marcel’s Brand (@MarcelsBrand) June 13, 2018
Surprised there’s blues who want Calvert Lewin to leave, I think he’s a good player.— San Paolo Du Paisco (@Coggi153) June 13, 2018
Some Of our fans are so hypocritical, want lookman but don’t want Calvert-Lewin https://t.co/83Em6WAUa2— EFC UTFT (@EfcUtft) June 12, 2018
Makes sense for Calvert-Lewin to want to stay at Everton, you can see him flourishing under a coach like Silva. Not sure they'd want to sell even if he did want a move.— Sean Lunt (@Sean_Lunt) June 12, 2018
I think he’s a good all-round striker, just needs to work on his finishing, but he’s only young. He’s got time to improve. He’d be great for our squad at least.— Everton Blue Army (@EvertonBlueArmy) June 12, 2018
Loan to championship for the season then look at him again...Definitely not good enough at present— Huggie (@Piaggiolad) June 12, 2018
He's one we must not let go Brands— MJ (@MJDtoffee65) June 12, 2018
