“They could get in the top four, surely.” Merson reckons signing this striker could see Arsenal get top four

Reports have linked Arsenal with a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin and ex-Gunner Paul Merson believes the Everton star would be a good signing.

Mikel Arteta’s team has been close to breaking inside the top four this season, but a lack of goals from the current attackers could deny them that achievement.

The Gunners can fix that by signing a reliable goalscorer in the January transfer window.

Calvert-Lewin has missed much of this season through injury and that has affected Everton.

He is set to return for the second half of the campaign and Arsenal should push to sign him, according to Merson.

He reckons the former Sheffield United man could help the club break back inside the top four.

“Arsenal need to go out and buy Calvert-Lewin and put in a massive bid for him,’ Merson told Sky Sports as quoted by Mirror Football

“They need a focal point up front who is good and strong.

“It’s the Arsenal. Where would he go? He can’t stay at Everton. Are they bigger Arsenal? Tell me a reason they are bigger club than Arsenal?

“Arsenal are going to finish above them; if Calvert-Lewin goes there they could get in the top four, surely.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Calvert Lewin has proven his worth in the league over the last few seasons, but Everton might not want to lose their top player in the middle of a campaign.

This doesn’t mean they won’t sell him, but Arsenal might have to pay over the odds to force their hand.

Because he knows the Premier League well, he might be a better option compared to the likes of Youssef En-Nesyri and Dusan Vlahovic.

  1. Sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin and even dream big things yet alone Top four. He is a quality striker with the real desire to succeed and prove himself at the highest level. It is a WIN – WIN for both parties. Arsenal needs quality striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin need a massive club like Arsenal to prove his abilities at the highest level

  2. I would say we already have a top 4 team but do we have a top 4 manager ?
    He seems incapable of getting the best out of the players at his disposal, and the answer is to throw more at him ?
    Let him see the season out but for goodness sake don’t waste another penny backing him would be my view

    1. I think the players he has bought ‘this season’ should stay if a new manager came, bit unfair to suggest he is buying duds this season.

      We desperately need a striker or two, if we are in striking distance of top 4 by January transfer window 🤞 I would trust him to buy a decent forward. (Who knew Willian would be that bad) 🤔 so don’t hold that against him….

      1. I did t say he bought duds though mate
        I said he is incapable of getting the best out of the players at his disposal .
        The excuses have worn so thin that the next bunch have started to appear .

        1. The players the club have signed have been pretty decent this season apart form Odegaard,but he’s just not getting the best out of the team .

  3. I take the thrust of Mersons argument and agree with it that we would be an improved side at least!

    But would DCL make us top four this eason though, IF(which I hugely doubt)we were to sign him in JAN?

    Looking soberly at the existing Man Utd squad and aaccepting that the presnt top three are miles above us, I MUCH DOUBT TOP FOUR IS REALISTIC.
    Not impossible, just unlikely.

  4. see what he offers when he comes back if its better than what we have bid for him if not after last transfer window see what people better placed and informed come up with
