Frank Lampard’s Toffees are at risk of dropping into the Championship thanks to an underwhelming Premier League season to date, leading to question marks over whether some of their biggest stars will still be on Merseyside next term.
What’s the latest news involving Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison?
According to The Sun, Everton are willing to offload Calvert-Lewin at the end of the season should his £60million price tag be met.
The report suggests the Toffees’ stance has led to Arsenal and West Ham United being put on red alert ahead of potentially making a move for the 11-cap England international.
Arsenal are also long-term admirers of Calvert-Lewin’s strike partner Richarlison, who is seeking a switch away from Goodison Park as he hopes to boost his chances of making Brazil’s World Cup squad later this year.
Manchester United and Real Madrid have reportedly contacted Everton over the possibility of signing Richarlison, who has been on the Toffees’ books since they parted with up to £50million to acquire him from Watford close to four years ago.

What has Paul Brown said about the duo?
Brown believes more clubs will be willing to stump up the cash for Calvert-Lewin than Richarlison.
The journalist feels offloading the Englishman would also allow Everton to pocket even more money.
Brown told GIVEMESPORT: “I suspect they’ll get more offers for Calvert-Lewin because Richarlison has been fit for most of the season and only scored seven goals. That’s not a great return.
“I think that Everton would get a bigger fee for Calvert-Lewin because he’s young, English and playing for England. It’ll depend on that.”
How have Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison performed for Everton?
Calvert-Lewin has found the back of the net 56 times over the course of 187 appearances for Everton, while he has also provided 17 assists.
Richarlison, meanwhile, has got his name on the scoresheet on 50 occasions in 146 outings since swapping Watford for Merseyside in a big-money move.
Like Calvert-Lewin, the 24-year-old Brazil international has found goals hard to come by this term, with him contributing eight so far.
