Manchester United might need to look elsewhere for their striker target this summer after it was revealed that Everton attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is on the verge of signing a new deal at Goodison Park.
The 22-year-old Everton striker has been in sensational form in the last three months and that has not gone unnoticed with Manchester United officials.
Recent reports had said that Manchester United are plotting a £50m raid on the player ahead of this summer.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored 15 goals in 31 games in all competitions for Everton this season including 13 goals in the Premier League alone.
He has been one of the best players in the Premier League since new Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti became the manager in December. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored nine league goals since the appointment of the Italian tactician which is more than any other player in the competition.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his 13th league goal of the season against Manchester United when the former Premier League champions visited Everton on Sunday afternoon.
His early strike was cancelled out by Manchester United new signing Bruno Fernandes. Calvert-Lewin thought he had won the game on the stroke of full-time only for it to be ruled as Gylfi Sigurdsson was adjudged to have blocked the view of Red Devils goalkeeper David De Gea.
Everton and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are in the mix for European football despite the fact that they are in 11th position with 37 points. They are just eight points off the last Champions League place occupied by Chelsea whom they face this weekend. It is a perfect opportunity for the Toffees to stake a claim for a European berth next season.
An away win over the Blues will take Everton closer to their objective of a Champions League spot for the next campaign. They had beaten the Blues 3-1 in the reverse fixture last year.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will sign a three-year contract extension until the 2024/25 season at Everton according to The Athletic to ward off the interest of Manchester United and others.
