West Ham United are reportedly preparing to launch a bid for Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin – but he will cost them a whopping £60million.
Hammers boss David Moyes is eyeing up the England striker’s situation after reportedly being told the Toffees would be willing to cash in on their talisman while his stock is high.
The 24-year-old has had a season to forget after a fractured toe in September ruled him out for over three months as his side struggled for form.
And despite making just three Premier League appearances this campaign, the forward is still regarded one of the brightest young English strikers with various clubs being linked with him.
West Ham are eager to add another dynamic striker to their forward line as they look to cement themselves as a top-six side.
Calvert-Lewin’s impressive goal-record for the Toffees in recent seasons ensures Moyes would be getting a star if they can match Everton’s price-tag.
But the valuation on the Everton no.9 is so high that The Sun report West Ham will not take the plunge.
They claim Everton will need to drop their “top line” in order for the Irons to make an official bid, which could include bonuses if Calvert-Lewin ends up guiding them to a Champions League place.
