Pundit says striker will wait for Arsenal despite talks with another club

Noel Whelan believes Dominic Calvert-Lewin will still prefer a move to Arsenal even though the Gunners haven’t made a serious effort to sign him yet.

The striker is on the radar of some Premier League clubs as Everton struggles to remain in the English top flight.

Newcastle United is another suitor looking to add him to their squad and the mega-rich Magpies have reportedly started talks with his entourage already.

However, former Leeds United man, Whelan insists he suits Arsenal’s style and he would be expecting the Gunners to make a move for him.

He tells Football Insider: “I still believe he would suit Arsenal more than Newcastle.

“But at the same time, if Newcastle are the side stepping up the talks – then that onus has just been put on Arsenal and Mikel Arteta to react.

“They’re trying to get the business done early and get the representatives sat down to try and reach a deal.

“I think Calvert-Lewin will probably be hoping Arsenal come in. The window isn’t even open yet, so this is one I can see going on all summer.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Although Newcastle United appear to have more money than Arsenal now, we are traditionally the bigger club.

Players will still choose to move to the Emirates over a move to Tyneside, at least for now.

However, Calvert-Lewin hasn’t been fit enough in this campaign and the Gunners might have other strikers at the top of their summer shopping list.

  1. lowered expectations…we better get used to this sort of lightweight recruitment target unless a miracle can happen come Sunday…in fact, after the last two piss-poor affairs, when we needed to show our collective worth, we should consider ourselves as lucky that even someone of his ilk would actually consider jumping on our slow-moving bus, especially with the anti-Striker tactics on offer

  2. Not DCL AT ANY PRICE. I would not take him even for nothing. He is overrated , injury prone and unreliable and apart from one good spell, has never scored nearly enough goals to justify the daft hype that surrounds him.

    1. Arsenal should. Stop buying players with injury history they will. Be. Prone to injuries all the time… Surprisingly we want to compete with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City /United, Chelsea,,, but we buy 2nd class players we are not serious. The likes of theirry Henry, Patrick Vieira, were not 2nd class players.,,, and they made the Gunners the most admired and Fearless club.

  3. Question to Noel Whlelan: “What is Arsenal’s style that Calven-Lewers suits, please?”
