Arsenal are reportedly tracking Everton and England striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin as they look to bolster their frontline this summer.

The Gunners finished in eighth place in the Premier League last season, failing to qualify for European competition for the first time in a quarter of a century.

Mikel Arteta is expected to revamp his squad ahead of the upcoming campaign, and the Gunners have been linked with moves for the likes of Brighton centre-back Ben White and 21-year-old Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga.

And according to The Telegraph, attack is another area Arsenal want to improve, should they be able to offload players.

The report states that the club are admirers of Calvert-Lewin and they are monitoring the 24-year-old.

The striker turned heads for the Toffees last season with 21 goals in 39 games across all competitions.

Calvert-Lewin’s excellent form also earned him a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad, although he has been limited to just a few minutes of substitute action so far in the tournament.

In terms of potential outgoings at the Emirates, multiple first-team players such as Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka, Hector Bellerin and Willian have all been linked with exits.

Meanwhile, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi, who both spent last season out on loan, also look likely to leave the club this summer.
