Roma are considering a shock move to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

That’s according to Corriere dello Sport, who have reported that the Italian giants are preparing an offer for the striker this summer.

Jose Mourinho has already wrapped up deals for a number of former Premier League players in the likes of Rui Patricio, Tammy Abraham and Rasmus Kristensen and he is now eager to bring Calvert-Lewin to Rome.

Previously known as one of the top flight’s best strikers and labelled ‘fantastic’ by Carlo Ancelotti, Calvert-Lewin has gone downhill in recent seasons due to his horrific injury record.

The forward has been sidelined for over 200 days over the last two years and has managed only seven goals, despite bagging over double that total in the 2020-21 campaign alone.

Calvert-Lewin has admitted he is working hard to make an impressive comeback for the Toffees, however he may not even be at Goodison Park next month.

Calvert-Lewin is very open to joining Roma and the amount of former Premier League players currently plying their trade in the city would make him more comfortable about a potential switch.

While working under Jose Mourinho could prove very tempting for the 26-year-old, the report claims that the European giants would only want to sign him on loan with the option to buy next summer.

Everton wouldn’t benefit at all from a loan move to Roma for Dominic Calvert-Lewin

While Dominic Calvert-Lewin has failed to reach previous heights for Everton over the last couple of years, it would surely take a lot to move him on given their current striker situation.

Following the departure of Ellis Simms, the Toffees are currently relying on DCL and Neal Maupay with only three weeks to go until their league opener against Fulham.

The England international could prove a very important asset for Everton if they can keep him fit and it would be very surprising to see them let him go on an initial loan deal when they wouldn’t benefit from it.
