Several Everton fans have questioned the reported £100,000-a-week figure mooted as the potential salary in Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s new contract.
Football Insider reported earlier this week that the 22-year old striker was edging closer to committing his long-term future to the Toffees, with Everton apparently set to confirm that Calvert-Lewin has signed a new contract imminently.
The Blues are said to want to tie Calvert-Lewin down to a new and improved long-term deal, amid speculated interest (via Mirror Sport) from Manchester United, owing to his upturn in form since early December.
According to Spotrac, Calvert-Lewin is currently on a weekly wage of £20,000, and having scored eight goals in his last 11 Premier League games, Everton apparently want to reward the potential future England international.
However, a number of supporters have questioned the reported figure that Calvert-Lewin could be set to earn, which Football Insider claims will be close to £100,000-a-week, taking to social media to voice their opinions.
