Carlo Ancelotti is planning a mind-blowing raid on Everton to take Dominic Calvert-Lewin to Real Madrid with him, according to reports.
The 24-year-old scored 21 goals for the Toffees last season, also recording four assists.
He has received rave reviews for his efforts and is currently part of the England squad at Euro 2020.
Calvert-Lewin has already been described as the complete striker by Ancelotti and he is keen to find him.
Everton were stunned when the Italian walked out of Goodison Park to make a comeback to Los Blancos.
Calvert-Lewin has been at Everton since 2016 and is making a name for himself.
In 173 outings for the club, he has found the net 53 times, with 15 assists.
The Toffees will be reluctant to sell and the forward could be valued at over £ 60million.
However, Real Madrid don’t come knocking every day and Everton will have their assessment of the talisman.
Calvert-Lewin earns £ 72,000 a week at Goodison Park and he would likely win a lot more at the Bernabeu.
Everton won’t want to lose their precious asset, but a decision to play Champions League football could tempt the player.
A chance to reconnect with Ancelotti could prove to be another attractive proposition for the Englishman.
Calvert-Lewin at Real Madrid: Everton must show ambition
The Toffees will intend to reach Europe themselves. For that, their best players must stay put.
Everton have the right to demand a significant evaluation for their striker. As a result, Madrid could end up looking elsewhere.
Calvert-Lewin will have to be convinced, however. He will have his own ambitions and Everton must start to match them.
If the club don’t improve and move up the rankings over the next two years, Calvert-Lewin will start looking elsewhere.
For now, Everton should hold on.
