Amidst the current chase for a new striker, Arsenal have been urged to pursue a deal in the January transfer window for a £60m worth English player in the January transfer window. 

In the latest transfer speculation about Arsenal, talkSPORT pundits have suggested Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin as a potential target if the Gunners are unable to secure Ivan Toney’s services from Brentford in the January transfer window.

Alan Brazil, speaking on talkSPORT, highlighted Calvert-Lewin as a viable option, emphasizing the striker’s goal-scoring abilities.

He raised the question of whether Everton might be willing to part with the English forward, especially considering his recent red card controversy.

However, co-host Ally McCoist was skeptical about the possibility, noting that Everton would likely be reluctant to sell Calvert-Lewin, given his significance to the team and the potential backlash from fans.

While Brazil sees Calvert-Lewin as a prolific goal-scorer, McCoist expressed doubts about the feasibility of acquiring the Everton striker, considering his injury problems and the unlikelihood of Everton letting him go.

Brazil said: “So, I was just going to touch on Calvert-Lewin, so he’s got off his red card and rightly so, that was a joke.

“And I was just thinking if they can’t get the boy from Brentford, if they can’t get Ivan, then would Everton sell Calvert-Lewin? Or are they just worried about his injury problems that he’s got?”

The discussion reflects the ongoing debate among football pundits and fans regarding Arsenal’s search for a reliable goal-scorer and potential options in the transfer market.

While Calvert-Lewin’s goal-scoring prowess is acknowledged, concerns about his fitness and Everton’s willingness to sell him in January remain significant factors.

Arsenal have since identified Ivan Toney as a priority but as we earlier reported, the forward plans to stay loyal to the Bees for the time being at least. However, any new contract would contain a release clause in a move that could give the Gunners hope of a future swoop for Toney.

That won’t help Arsenal for now, with a new striker considered a must this month by Mikel Arteta.

Alan Brazil is convinced 26-year old will solve Arsenal’s goalscoring problems when he said “He’d finish, I think he’d score a lot of goals.”
