Arsenal chief Edu places Everton striker Calvert-Lewin top of shopping list

Arsenal chief Edu has placed Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin top of their shopping list.

Football.London says technical director Edu is already building up a shortlist of targets for centre-forward.

According to the report the No 1 standout candidate would be Calvert-Lewin, who has emerged as one of England's key marksman over the last year.

The 24-year-old enjoyed a strong campaign last time out, netting 21 goals in all competitions and 16 in the Premier League.

His form rewarded him a place in England's Euro 2020 squad and his form carried over into this season where he scored in the first three games of the Premier League campaign before fracturing his toe.

It is though the 6ft 2in striker could benefit from the Gunners' style of play given they attempted the third-most crosses in the top flight last term and one of the 24-year-old's strengths is his heading ability.
