Callum Wilson set for Newcastle United exit, Dominic Calvert-Lewin on transfer radar

Callum Wilson could leave Newcastle United in the close season and prioritise a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin as his replacement.

According to Luke Edwards of The Telegraph, Newcastle United could sell Callum Wilson and bring Dominic Calvert-Lewin as his replacement. Eddie Howe has phased out the 32-year-old Wilson, and the club could use the funds from his sale to bring the Everton attacker, who has a year left on his current deal. 

Callum Wilson to depart?

Newcastle United are gearing up for one of the most important summer windows of their history, with the club planning on strengthening the squad. The primary objective would be re-entry into the Champions League with a top-four finish next season, but Eddie Howe wants to bring in a new striker and sell a current star.

Newcastle United have been considering parting ways with Callum Wilson since February. The striker has endured another difficult season hampered by injuries and a loss in form. There are suggestions that Saudi Arabian clubs could move in for the 32-year-old, which might bring in some funds from his sale. 

Once the experienced striker leaves, Newcastle United will pursue Dominic Calvert-Lewin as their preferred replacement for Wilson. The Magpies have been interested in the Toffees striker, who has only had one of his most healthy seasons in a long time. 

Calvert-Lewin played 32 times this season, which was relatively injury-free, and will enter the final year of his deal in the summer. That does give Newcastle United the opportunity to make a move for him, as Eddie Howe believes he can get the best out of the 27-year-old, who has somewhat lacked the numbers in an otherwise pragmatic Everton side. 

Will Everton sell Calvert-Lewin?

Calvert-Lewin remains a loyal player to Everton, but he might see the summer as an opportunity to explore a big career move. The Toffees are aware of his contractual situation, and reports suggest they could seek as much as £60 million from suitors

That’s a bit much for a player in his final year. However, Calvert-Lewin possesses great qualities for a traditional No.9. Newcastle Untied would like to increase competition in the p[position as well as keep Arsenal-linked Alexander Isak at the club beyond the summer window.
