JUST IN : Sean Dyche’s Primary Objective for Everton’s Summer Transfer Window Revealed


Everton may be spending big, but that doesn’t mean their financial woes are over.

Ultimately, last month was a nice balance of avoiding the June 30th PSR deadline, selling with intelligence and buying tactically.

Everton’s PSR gap came under heavy scrutiny when they swapped deals with Aston Villa, and while they appear to be done, we await the Premier League’s official verdict.

For now, the Toffees have other matters to worry about, namely making sure their stars aren’t heading for the exit door.

Update on the contract situation for Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Journalist Paddy Boyland, writing for The Athletic, has provided the latest information on the long-running Everton saga that every fan wants resolved immediately.

After all, when Dominic Calvert-Lewin refuses to sign a contract, he is slowly burning bridges at Goodison Park.

But this latest update gives hope as Sean Dyche seems to be making it his personal mission to sort out this mess: “Last I checked, it hasn’t changed much for a while – at least not when it comes to a potential new contract with Everton But he remains their priority after returning to his prime at the end of last season.

“Calvert-Lewin’s camp have long been aware of the club’s intention to offer new terms, but a decision has been put on hold until survival is assured and Everton’s future is clearer. I am not aware of any breakthrough, but it has been stressed to me that all options remain on the table.

“A decision clearly needs to be made soon, given that the 27-year-old striker is now in the final year of his contract. Everton’s financial situation is such that they cannot afford to lose a player of his ability and value for free, forcing them here , if he doesn’t sign, he will almost certainly have to be sold.

“Remember: Calvert-Lewin would be a Newcastle player by now if he agreed personal terms there.”

Everton must not be forced to pay too much

Although Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been a hugely important figure for Everton, and has been for eight years, they cannot be forced to overpay for his services.

His £100,000-a-week contract is already one of, if not the highest at the club, and given his form and fitness struggles in recent years, he hardly deserves a huge pay packet.

He made 32 Premier League appearances last campaign but scored just seven goals.

He even went through a barren stretch where he failed to hit the back of the net in 23 consecutive games.

The Englishman is not completely irreplaceable, but finding a replacement will be a difficult and arduous process for Kevin Thelwell.

Ideally, he would stay, but Everton should not allow their ridiculous demands to be met if this is the current stumbling block in negotiations.
