Calvert-Lewin, 25, has scored 58 goals in 191 games for Everton since joining the Toffees from Sheffield United in 2016.
The forward enjoyed a breakthrough in 2020/21, scoring more than 20 goals in all competitions to help Everton finish in the top half of the Premier League and establish themselves as an English regular.
However, Calvert-Lewin only played 17 league games last season as a series of injuries marred his playing time at Goodison Park.
Despite his recent fitness woes, several clubs have expressed interest in signing Calvert-Lewin and Arsenal, Man United and Newcastle could be locked in a transfer scramble this summer.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new striker to replace former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while new Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag wants to bolster his attacking options and provide competition and cover for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Newcastle, meanwhile, are ready to invest in Eddie Howe’s squad after a brilliant second half of the season as their new owners look to turn the club into a domestic and European contender.
According to the Daily Mirror, Newcastle have identified Calvert-Lewin as their top target for this summer’s transfer window and Everton are braced for offers.
With Arsenal and Manchester United potentially competing for a deal with Newcastle, it is claimed Calvert-Lewin is “open” to a move from Goodison Park.
While Everton avoided relegation under Frank Lampard, it was still a dismal season for the Toffees, who finished 16th in the Premier League, four points above the drop zone.
Arsenal boss Arteta is believed to be an admirer of Calvert-Lewin but the Gunners have made Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus their main target to replace Aubameyang.
Gunners legend Paul Merson doubts his former club’s ability to sign Jesus after failing to qualify for next season’s Champions League but believes a deal for Calvert-Lewin could still be a possibility .
“Arsenal will have money to spend,” Merson told the Daily Star last week. “But who do they get if they’re not in the Champions League?
“Dominic Calvert-Lewin would still go there. But who else? With no Champions League football, what groundbreaking world class will sign for Arsenal?
“That’s the concern. It was in their hands and they went to Spurs and threw it away. It’s in Tottenham’s hands now – and if they finish the job it will be very difficult for Arsenal to swallow.
