Calvert-Lewin’s stock is on the rise after an impressive 2020/21 campaign. The 24-year-old scored 21 goals in all competitions and is now a full England international.
Since the conclusion of the 2020/21 season, there has been talk of other clubs being interested in the player, with Real Madrid named as a shock contender by one report.
Would you sell DCL for £75m?
Given his importance to the side, Everton will not want to sell Calvert-Lewin this summer. But if they are willing to for whatever reason, Windass believes the club should be looking for a fee of around £75m.
“I think in the region of about £70m, £75m,” the ex-Hull City forward exclusively told TIF when asked how much does he think Calvert-Lewin is worth in the current market.
“50 million now (Real Madrid’s reported valuation), it’s not a lot of money in terms of football. No, I think it’d cost [Carlo] Ancelotti a little bit more than that.”
Following the appointment of Rafael Benitez as manager, Farhad Moshiri’s popularity has probably already taken a bit of a hit.
Selling one of the team’s best players in Calvert-Lewin and you would expect that to perhaps deal another blow towards his reputation, though a £75m bid would understandably be hard to turn down.
