Manchester City have stormed their way to three Premier League titles in the last four seasons, and they have managed to achieve this remarkable feat by constantly spending big money on top players. It is certain that City will once again spend big in the summer, but on who is the key question. Could Calvert-Lewin be the next big-money arrival at the Etihad?
City may be interested in the 25-year-old because of their own troubles in the striker department.
Ever since club legend Sergio Aguero announced that he would be leaving the club at the expiry of his contract, the club have failed to replace the Argentine's goals. Gabriel Jesus has been left as the Sky Blues' only out-and-out striker but has failed to impress, recording a mere two goals in 21 appearances this season, and nine in 29 last campaign.
11 goals in 50 appearances is a pretty shocking record, especially considering that the Brazilian is in a dominant Manchester City side in which the forwards always receive plenty of service from the midfield.
As a result, City have had to rely on goals from other players, with the majority of their goals coming from midfield or their wide players. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva account for 37 of City's 70 Premier League goals this season. So, Pep Guardiola may look to spend big on a striker to ease the goalscoring burden on his midfielders and wingers, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin may be the option that the club decides to go for.
Manchester City are priced at 12/1 to sign Calvert-Lewin this summer.
