West Ham ‘want to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin but Everton are demanding an eye-watering £60MILLION to let him leave Goodison Park’ as David Moyes turns to his old club in his search for a striker
- West Ham are keen on signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin to bolster their attack
- The forward has scored 56 goals in 179 appearances since joining the Toffees
- Everton have reportedly set an asking price of £60m for the 24-year-old
- West Ham don’t want to pay that fee, and are hoping Everton lower his price-tag
West Ham have reportedly set their sights on signing Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin, although the Toffees have slapped a £60million price-tag on the striker.
Calvert-Lewin has had an injury-hit campaign, which has seen him feature just six times in the Premier League.
However, he was at the top of his game last term, scoring 16 league goals under Carlo Ancelotti to force his way into England’s squad for the European Championships.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been at Everton since 2016, but West Ham want to sign him
This appears to have been enough to convince West Ham that he could strengthen their attack, and the east London club are ready to make their move for the 24-year-old, according to The Sun.
It is understood that the Irons’ owners are prepared to back David Moyes in the transfer market. Still, it has been claimed that they will not follow through on their interest unless Everton drop their asking price.
If Everton do change their stance this month, West Ham could test the waters in the final days of the current transfer window, and they may offer the 11-cap international a bonus if he can fire them into the top four in May.
Should Everton stand firm, though, West Ham may have to wait until the summer before trying to tempt Calvert-Lewin away from Goodison Park.
David Moyes seems eager to strengthen his attacking options for the second half of the season
West Ham are heavily reliant on Michail Antonio at the moment to play as their lone striker
The Hammers currently only have one recognised forward in Michail Antonio to call upon.
With the side returning to Europa League action next month, there could be a lot of pressure on the Jamaican forward to stay fit between now and the end of the season unless West Ham sign someone to support him in January.
Moyes’ men looked particularly toothless in the final third in their latest outing against Manchester United on Saturday, with Marcus Rashford scoring the only goal of the game in added time to condemn West Ham to a disappointing defeat.
