Some Everton fans on social media have been reacting after The Telegraph reported that Newcastle United want to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
A couple of months ago, it would have sounded absolutely ludicrous to suggest that Calvert-Lewin could join Newcastle, but now that the Magpies are one of the richest clubs in the world, this has become a distinct possibility.
The Tyneside club have plenty of money to spend, and it seems as though they could become a very successful club in the coming seasons.
Calvert-Lewin would undoubtedly be taking a backwards step in his career if he were to join Newcastle right now. After all, they are in the relegation zone at the moment, but the Magpies’ long-term project could be enough to convince the England striker.
It’s fair to say that Everton fans want a massive fee for the forward, with many supporters quoting a fee of over £100m for the striker.
It remains to be seen the type of fee Calvert-Lewin would command, but if Newcastle are to sign the Toffees’ star man, they may have to cough up the cash.
Here’s what Everton fans on social media have been saying about this rumour…
