Dominic Calvert-Lewin sends message to Mikel Arteta as Arsenal hunt summer transfer

2 mins read


Arsenal are set to be in desperate need for a new striker this summer. Alexandre Lacazette is out of contract at the end of the season and could leave for nothing, which is the same position Eddie Nketiah finds himself in.

Arsenal, to some people’s surprise, did not replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when he left for Barcelona in January. Manager Mikel Arteta claimed there was no point signing a striker if the right type was not available.

Lacazette has impressed at times in recent weeks, despite failing to score a goal from open play in 2022. But, even if the Frenchman does extend his stay, Arsenal know they will need at least one new forward.

Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin is one player on the Gunners’ list of targets. The England international has been hampered by injury problems this season.

But Thursday night proved he has that composure at pressure moments and could play more to Arteta’s style. The goal was similar to that of Bukayo Saka’s against Watford earlier this month.

Saka, like Iwobi, fed the ball into Lacazette and a backheel return pass set up the England star to score. Calvert-Lewin’s contract at Everton does not expire until the summer of 2025 so he would unlikely be available at a cheap price.

But Arteta may want to push for a deal more after what he saw on Thursday.
