Everton: 'Inevitable' one of £126m duo will leave Goodison Park

Everton manager Frank Lampard

It is “inevitable” that Everton will lose one of Richarlison or Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer, says Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.

The Merseyside club are not in the greatest financial position right now, and Brown believes that has left them in a situation where they are going to have to sell players in the next transfer window.

What is the latest news involving Everton?

Everton revealed at the end of March that they made a loss of just over £100m for the 2020/21 financial year, which was largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, it now looks like there are going to have to be some departures this summer, with Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin the two players in Frank Lampard‘s squad who are likely to attract the most interest.

According to Brazilian outlet UOL, Premier League rivals Tottenham have already made an approach for Richarlison as they look to bolster their attack.

Elsewhere, The Sun claims that the Toffees are ready to sell Calvert-Lewin, and that has alerted both Arsenal and Tottenham.

What has Brown said about Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin?

Brown has told GIVEMESPORT that one of Richarlison or Calvert-Lewin leaving Goodison Park is an inevitability due to the club’s current financial situation.

Speaking to GMS, the Daily Star reporter said: “It’s inevitable that one of them goes because the financial position the club finds itself in is so dire that they know they have to sell someone to generate some revenue.”

How much money could Everton get for selling Richarlison or Calvert-Lewin?

As long as they do not get relegated, which is still a possibility, Everton should be able to rake in a lot of money from selling either one of Richarlison or Calvert-Lewin.

UOL claims that the Merseyside outfit are hoping for an €80m (£66m) fee for Richarlison, while The Sun states that they valued Calvert-Lewin at £60m in the January transfer window.

Do you know this obscure Everton footballer from the 1990s?

Both players have been good attackers for Everton, so Lampard will not want to lose either. Calvert-Lewin has obviously not had a productive season, largely because of injury, but the 25-year-old did manage to score 21 goals in all competitions last term.

As for Richarlison, the Brazilian is a forward who can play up front and on the wing. That versatility alone makes him a player worth keeping hold of.

Unfortunately, Everton’s hands look tied, so it would not be a surprise if they did sell Richarlison or Calvert-Lewin ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
