The Gunners have been told their target is not up for sale as he’s seen as an integral part of his club’s future.

More Details

Arsenal are on the lookout for a new striker ahead of next season with no assured front man going into the coming season.


The Mikel Arteta led side have their eyes on a number of strikers in and around the Premier League including Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and Everton’s Dominic Calvert Lewin.

Everton coach Frank Lampard has however come out to dim the light on the England international departing the Toffees this summer as he sees him as an important part of the project.

With three years left on his contract, Calvert Lewin may be blocked from leaving Goodison Park despite having appeared sparingly this season due to injuries.

“He is a fantastic striker, a pedigree striker and there are simply not that many around,” the manager explained as per the Mirror.

“He has three years left on his contract, and I want to take this club forward. A player of Dominic’s can help that – he is our player and that’s it.”

Lampard insisted he hasn’t heard from the player as to whether he could ask to leave the club at the end of the season.

“He has not said anything to me like that, he trains well, we communicate a lot and he’s not said anything,” he said. “I’m not silly – this is football, so I am aware of the way things can go.

“Dominic’s been a big player for Everton, and Everton have been big for him in his career, so that should be the story.” 

Arsenal, should they fail in the pursuit of the Everton man well have another option in Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus who is primed to depart the reigning champions at the conclusion of the current season.


Frank Lampard has warned his players not to take their eyes off the ball as they battle to stay up in the top flight.

The Toffees find themselves in an unusual position on the log where they have to fight for survival with the Chelsea legend charging his players to fight till the end.

They have two games left against Brentford and Crystal Palace with four points enough to secure their status in the Premier League for yet another season.

“It’s vital now, absolutely crucial, that we invest everything in keeping up the intensity to the end of the season.

“We have got ourselves in a good position, but it is so important now we don’t relax, and keep pushing to get the job done.

“It is up to us to get it over the line, and then after the club will look at ourselves, to see how we improve ourselves. We are already looking at things, in terms of signings, and other areas.”

Lampard is in his first season at the Merseyside club after taking over from Rafa Benitez midway through the season.
