Everton must take this action with attacker amid reported PL interest, Silva needs to be bold
Everton attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is certainly a future star that can shine at Goodison Park, but sending him out on loan in the 2018/19 campaign may not be the worst idea.
The Daily Mirror reports that Premier League rivals Bournemouth are interested in signing the 21-year-old this summer, but he is focused on returning to pre-season to try impress new Toffees boss Marco Silva.
However, the Merseyside club should try reach a compromise in which the England Under-21 international is sent to Bournemouth on a season-long loan next year.
The centre-forward did impressed with eight goals and seven assists in 44 games for Everton in the recent season, but is still not quite clinical enough in front of goal and there will be no distraction of European football in the next campaign.
Everton have to be pushing for the European spots under the new manager and that is why Silva has to be bold in trying to sign a new striker to compete with Cenk Tosun in the starting XI.

That would only push Calvert-Lewin further down the pecking order and giving him regular minutes is crucial at this stage of his career.
Calvert-Lewin could really thrive from a short-term spell at Bournemouth playing attacking football under Eddie Howe and is good enough to nail down a starting place, which could set him up perfectly for Everton the following season.
