His days at Goodison Park may be coming to an end.

Rather than let Amadou Onana or Jarrad Branthwaite leave, Everton is now prepared to accept an offer for a “fantastic” player during the summer transfer window in order to raise money.

Everton expected to sell-to-buy this summer

The Blues defeated Burnley 1-0 at home in the Premier League on Saturday, a crucial win that significantly raised their chances of finishing the season in the top level. Naturally, given how intense the season has been both on and off the field, it could depend on any more point deductions they receive.

It is possible that Everton will lose several key players as the season comes to a conclusion, partially due to necessity due to finances, but also possibly due to choice in certain cases.

This summer, Onana is the player who has been most frequently connected to leaving Goodison Park; teams like Barcelona, Arsenal, and Newcastle United are all rumored to be interested in making a big-money transfer for the midfield star. But the Merseysiders are unlikely to accept anything less than an enormous offer, and Branthwaite, who is rumored to be valued at £80 million, is the same.

Jordan Pickford, who has consistently fought for relegation rather than major championships, may perhaps feel that he needs a new challenge at this juncture in his career, but it appears the team is eyeing another player to cash in on this summer.

Everton to accept £40m offers for “fantastic” ace

As long as Everton receives a price of more over £40 million, Football Insider reports that they will probably accept an offer for Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer. Anything at or over the rumored price tag would be a huge boost, since it is suggested that “Sean Dyche’s side could be forced to accept a lower offer than their new valuation amid their continued financial struggles”.

Calvert-Lewin looked like such a great promise in 2020–21, when he scored 16 goals in 32 Premier League starts. It is unfortunate how his career has collapsed in following years. Since then, injuries have severely limited him, and he has had a very difficult season, scoring just five goals in 27 league games overall.

Given that his fitness issues make it difficult for him to have long stints with the club, it seems like the appropriate time for Everton to cash in on him. At 27, it also makes sense to accept the money now rather than waiting until he is too old to receive decent money.

No one can dispute Calvert-Lewin’s offensive prowess—former Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti called him “fantastic”—but the Blues ought to let him go, clear out his £100,000-per-week contract, and bring in a younger, less prone to injury replacement.
