Has Dominic Calvert-Lewin done enough this seson to warrant a £100,000-a-week contract?
No, that's ridiculous money
Yes, he's a key player for us
The 22-year-old frontman has been the Toffees’ fourth-best performer so far this season, with an average rating of 6.9/10 and two man of the match awards (per WhoScored).
While some supporters were pleased to see Calvert-Lewin being tied down to a new contract in the blue half of Merseyside, other supporters were shocked by the reported amount the 22-year-old would be set to be earning.
Be amazed if he’s on that sort of figure.
I’m not sure what he earns now but guessing around £20/30k so again guessing he will double that figure

What do we think?
With 13 goals and one assist over 29 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions so far this term (per Transfermarkt), it is clear to see why the club would be keen to tie him down to a new contract.
However, while supporters appear to be pleased about the report, there is certainly also a little concern over the amount the club has, reportedly, offered Calvert-Lewin in wages.
