Media reports say that Sheffield Wednesday striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is on his way to Everton.
Everton have agreed a £1.4m deal with Sheffield United to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has just been called up to the England U-20 squad.— Stuart James (@StuartJamesGNM) August 31, 2016
Calvert-Lewin plays as striker for Sheffield United in League One. The 19-year-old has been part of the Blades youth setup for a decade, and spent two loan spells at Stalybridge Celtic and Northampton Town during this last season. He has 11 goals in 36 senior appearances, including 8 goals for Northampton as the Cobblers went on to win the League Two title.
The player was last week called up to the England U-20 team for the first time, and looks like a smart signing on the part of Ronald Koeman to beef up the youth ranks at the Everton Academy.
Manchester United were reported to be interested in the player a couple of days ago, but now it’s looking like the Toffees have beaten the Red Devils to the punch by offering £1.5m to the Blades. Everton had first made contact for the player in early June, but have now finalized the deal.
