Everton: 'Decision' on £90m duo 'might be taken out of Toffees' hands'

If Everton had to sell one of Richarlison or Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer, the easier decision would be to sell the former, that is according to journalist Paul Brown.

Both players have been linked with exits and could look to move as the Toffees continue to struggle under Frank Lampard.

What is the latest news involving Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin?

According to The Telegraph, Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin are both being eyed by rival Premier League clubs.

Newcastle United, Arsenal and Manchester United have been named specifically, with all three outfits expected to be in the market for a new striker.

The same report also mentions Jordan Pickford as a potential target for Tottenham, so Everton could be in for a really grim summer.

Lampard, however, can only worry about now. His relegation-threatened side are in dire need of points after a run of one win in nine games prior to their late victory against Newcastle on Thursday.

What has Brown said about Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin?

When it comes to the £90m-rated duo, Brown believes the easier decision is to sell Richarlison if one has to go this summer.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the Daily Star journalist said: “If they had to sell one, I would think the easier decision would be to sell Richarlison.

“It’s just I think there’ll be more interest in Calvert-Lewin, so that decision might be taken out of their hands.”

Can Everton keep hold of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin?

If they are in the Championship next season, then they certainly have no chance. But even if Everton remain in the Premier League, retaining the services of both Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin looks like a hard task.

With the direction the Merseyside club have been heading in, it would hardly be a shock if either pushed for a move, especially when the likes of Arsenal and United could be circling in regards to the latter.

How many league titles have Everton won?

Everton have also had financial fair play problems, while owner Farhad Moshiri recently cut ties with Alisher Usmanov, whose companies had sponsorship deals at Goodison Park. It means they could be forced to sell a key asset this summer if Lampard wants to bring in new players, and Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin are quite clearly ideal candidates.

The Englishman and Brazilian both probably have the potential to fetch good money and may fancy something new. And given the plummet Everton are on, who could blame them?
