Arsenal ‘cool interest’ in struggling Premier League striker



Arsenal will reportedly pass on the opportunity to sign Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the summer transfer window.

It has been a difficult campaign for the Toffees, who are now one point above the relegation zone after their 3-2 defeat to Burnley on Wednesday night.

Calvert-Lewin hit the ground running this season, scoring three goals in his opening three Premier League appearances.

However, after suffering a long-term injury, the England man has struggled to regain his scoring touch as he searches for his first goal since August.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, but his difficult season has put the Gunners off, according to The Telegraph (via the Mirror).

The report claims that the north Londoners have ‘cooled’ their interest in Calvert-Lewin, with Alexander Isak, Memphis Depay and Cody Gakpo emerging as alternative summer signings.

PSV attacker Gakpo revealed this week that he ‘likes Arsenal a lot’ and that he “looked up to” their legendary forward Thierry Henry.

The 22-year-old has been in fantastic form for the Dutch side this season. He has grabbed nine goals and 13 assists in the league from his 21 games.

Gakpo made his senior debut for the Netherlands last year and he has now been capped four times.

The winger is expected to leave PSV this summer. He has revealed that he wants to play in the Premier League.

“The Premier League is a big league. Virgil van Dijk plays there with Liverpool so I like to watch them,” Gakpo told The Sun.

“We are not the same kind of league but I think we try to look at the Premier League and learn about it. Everybody wants to play one time in the Premier League. I don’t favour one team but I like Arsenal a lot.

“I looked up to Henry when I was younger because he was a tall guy who played on the wing.”
