West Ham have been scouting Dominic Calvert-Lewin extensively ahead of a potential summer transfer window swoop for the Everton striker.

That’s according to club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes is planning to use his close contacts at Goodison Park to get a deal done for the 25-year-old Everton hitman.

West Ham are in desperate need of a top-class centre-forward this summer.

Michail Antonio is currently Moyes’s only option through the middle and bringing an elite striker to the London Stadium before the start of next season will be of paramount importance for the Hammers.

West Ham seem to be on precipice of achieving some real success. There are two directions we can go in the summer. If the owners show some real ambition, the Hammers could be onto something special under the guidance of David Moyes.

And it seems as though the East London outfit have a big statement signing in the pipeline…

Claret and Hugh reckons that the Hammers have been keeping a very close eye on the 25-year-old forward. And Moyes is allegedly planning to use his ‘excellent contacts’ to help facilitate a move to sign Calvert-Lewin.

We think that the Toffees hitman would be a very good signing for the West Ham.

Calvert-Lewin has been in fine form for Everton, having scored 24 goals in his last 50 games in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

The 25-year-old is comfortable when leading the line on his own and is always willing to make the tireless runs into the channels. He is very, very good in the air as well.

The Everton striker would provide very strong competition for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.

Frank Lampard is allegedly prepared to sell Calvert-Lewin for less than Everton’s original £60 million asking price according to The Sun.

Perhaps if we could pick him up for around £40-45 million it would be a good deal. Whether Everton will be prepared to sell for that kind of fee remains to be seen though.
