Dominic Calvert-Lewin is preparing for a huge season at Everton.

Speaking to evertontv, the striker revealed he has been working throughout the off-season as he looks to reignite his career after a series of injuries.

Calvert-Lewin was a target for the likes of Arsenal and Newcastle United in previous years as he bagged 29 goals across two campaigns in the Premier League.

However, the 26-year-old has since spent over 200 days on the treatment table and managed only 15 starts last season as he recovered from knee and hamstring problems.

After netting only twice last season, Calvert-Lewin has claimed he has been working very hard to get back to his best this summer and only awarded himself a ‘little rest’.

“I’ve worked pretty much all my way through the off season,” Calvert-Lewin told Everton’s YouTube channel.

“I tried to have a little rest but for the most part I just wanted to be back on the grass and playing football. I just want to put myself in the best position possible for the new season.

“It’s a massive season for myself and the club. It’s about getting back to the level I know I’m capable of on a consistent basis and that’s been the frustrating thing for myself and everybody watching, because everyone knows what I’m capable of.”

A fully fit Dominic Calvert-Lewin can be Everton saviour this season

The forward is clearly confident he can rediscover his form this season and is putting in all the work to get to that point, though it will all depend on how long he can stay fit for.

If the former Sheffield United man can stay on the pitch for a majority of the season then that could completely change the campaign’s outcome for the Toffees, who have struggled for goals since DCL’s downfall.
