Everton youngster, Calum Dyson has revealed his goal-scoring target for the season in a recent interview with the club.
Speaking to Everton TV, Dyson said he wanted to score betwen 15 and 20 goals for the club’s Under-23s side.
The young striker signed a professional contract with the club in July 2014 but is yet to make a first team appearance.
The 20 year-old went out on loan to Stockport County and Chester between August and December 2015.
However, he’s remained with the club this season and has featured twice for the Under-23s side.

He told the club’s TV channel that it was his favourite goal and he hoped to score many more through the season.

“Obviously my main aim is to score goals, and after getting the first one, the rest seem to come more easily as your confidence builds,” Dyson told the club.
“It’s pleasing to score goals and hopefully I can carry that on for the rest of the season.
“[My favourite] was probably the one I scored against Bolton, it was 20 yards out and it was one of those where you just catch it.
“I’m on five goals so hopefully I can get to double figures as quickly as possibly. Every striker wants to be pushing to score around 15-20 goals a season.”
Dyson was a regular feature for David Unsworth’s Under-21s squad and notched up six appearances before enjoying loan spells away from the club.
He scored six goals and grabbed ten assists for the Under-18s during their title-winning campaign in 2013-14.
