Everton are in advanced talks to agree a blockbuster new contract with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Football Insider can reveal.
The Merseysiders have moved to the in-form striker, 22, to improved and extended terms amid growing interest from Europe’s elite teams.
An Everton source has told Football Insider that Calvert-Lewin has been offered a long-term deal that will lift him into the top bracket of earners at the club.
It is expected that a lucrative long-term agreement worth nearly £100,000-a-week will be signed imminently.
This comes after Football Insider revealed at the start of this month that the Merseysiders were confident of agreeing a new contract with Dominic Calvert-Lewin after positive preliminary discussions.
Everton recognise the former Sheffield United striker deserves rewarding for the immense strides he has made in recent months.
Calvert-Lewin has more than three years remaining on his current deal, which expires in the summer of 2023.
He has taken his game to a new level since Duncan Ferguson’s spell in caretaker charge was followed by the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti.
The England Under-21 international has scored 13 goals from 29 appearances in all competitions this season, including 11 strikes from 24 Premier League games.
Calvert-Lewin has netted eight times in the league since 7 December, with all of his goals proving crucial to the match outcome.
He was signed by Everton – for just £1.5 million – when he was 19, in the summer of 2016 from Sheffield United.
