Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin says he is relishing the challenge of leading the line and wants the job on a permanent basis.
The 22-year-old is manager Marco Silva’s first choice ahead of £27million Turkey international Cenk Tosun and has responded by equalling the best goalscoring return of his short career with eight this season.
In the last few weeks, he has asked questions of Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk and Chelsea’s David Luiz. With the club still needing an out-and-out main centre-forward to replace Romelu Lukaku, Calvert-Lewin wants to establish himself in the role permanently.
“I’ve played in my favoured position for the last few games now,” he said. “I’ve proved what I can do up there with my current performances, and I’m helping the team to put in good performances and results.
I’m hitting the back of the net as well. “Everyone knows you have to lead the line, and it comes with great responsibility.
I will take that pressure on my shoulders. I want to lead the line for Everton. I’m happy to be doing that at the moment.
“If I want to get to where I want to get to and score many goals for Everton, I have to take that responsibility on. “I’d like to think my last few performances have shown that I can lead the line and I’m capable of taking that responsibility and lead the lads from the front.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
