  Dominic Calvert-Lewin is targeted by Arsenal.

And Paul Merson believes Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the striker Arsenal need to sign. The Everton star has become one of the best strikers in the Premier League in recent seasons. He is being targeted by several top clubs and could leave The Toffees at the end of this season.

As for Arsenal , Mikel Arteta has let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave the club and they could also lose Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah at the end of this season. If that happens, the Gunners will need a major change in attack.

Several strikers have been linked with the Emirates Stadium team, including Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak . But Merson believes the one who can take the club to the next level is Calvert-Lewin.

The former Arsenal star said : ” Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the perfect fit for Arsenal  and they should break the bank to sign him next summer.

Arsenal need a world-class striker. They have just saved £25 million in wages by eliminating Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. And they tried to spend big on Dusan Vlahovic so we know they still have enough money to shop. They should talk to Everton about Calvert-Lewin.

Calvert-Lewin was young and full of desire. He will be England’s first choice as ‘Number 9’ for years to come. Not only that, he also holds the ball well, and does well without the ball at his feet.”
