Dominic Calvert-Lewin urged to join West Ham from Everton by talkSPORT pundit

Darren Bent has urged Everton centre-forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin to join West Ham United in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old Everton striker has been heavily linked with a move to West Ham at the end of this season (The Sun and Claret and Hugh).

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class striker to the London Stadium in the summer.

It is truly unacceptable that Michail Antonio is currently our only centre-forward option, especially considering the fact that we expect to be competitive in four competitions.

That must change in the summer. David Moyes is obviously aware of that, he tried to sign an elite forward during the January transfer window after-all.

Calvert-Lewin would be the ideal summer signing for West Ham in my view. He has everything that David Moyes looks for in a striker.

The only concern or the Hammers will be his recent injury problems but all players go through those spells during their careers.

Darren Bent advises Calvert-Lewin to leave Everton for West Ham

With the Toffees looking to balance the books at Goodison Park, the 25-year-old striker could be sent on his way this summer.

And Darren Bent told talkSport why West Ham would be the absolutely ideal destination for the Everton centre-forward:

“I think for Calvert-Lewin, West Ham. They need another centre-forward, they cross the ball. If Everton ask for £60million no one’s buying him for that.”

Bent then responded when asked how much he believes Calvert-Lewin will leave Everton for:

“£35-40m.”

If West Ham can sign Calvert-Lewin for £40 million, it seems like an absolute no-brainer to me.

Calvert-Lewin has been in fine form for Everton over the past couple of years, 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.

Calvert-Lewin should take Darren Bent’s advice. West Ham would be a great move for him.
