Shocking: £100k-per-week ace outlines his bold Everton ambition in warning shot to former trio…

Even though he has played a variety of positions for Everton, including left back and central midfield in addition to his more natural striker role, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been an important member of the team since joining Ronald Koeman’s first squad.

The Toffees have so suffered greatly as a result of his ongoing injury problems over the past two years, as they have naturally grown dependent on the former Sheffield United player’s heroics.

It’s a depressing read for Evertonians to see just thirty starts in two complete seasons of Premier League football, from 2021 to 2023, and seven more goals.

But after five consecutive starts, it appears the 26-year-old has finally overcome those injuries; his performance yesterday marked his fourth of the season overall.

Furthermore, it was a strike that saw him close the gap on Tim Cahill, Duncan Ferguson, and Romelu Lukaku, taking his league total for the team to 50.

In an interview with Sky Sports following the game, he disclosed his goal of surpassing those inspirational figures: A tremendous milestone was reached when one of the boys told me, while we were riding the bus to the game, that I was only one goal away from 50. At the football club, I’m among good company, and my goal is to eliminate the other three!

Who is the all-time highest scorer for Everton?

There is little likelihood that the £100k-per-week ace will surpass the club’s all-time top scorer records.

Ultimately, Dixie Dean’s fabled 383 is an unfathomably lofty number that will live on in the annals of history.

But that becomes a far more realistic aim for Calvert-Lewin when it comes to their all-time Premier League top scorer.

With 50 strikes, he is only six behind the Australian player mentioned earlier, and he will have 38 games remaining in the same number of games to reach that total.

Then, sitting on a round 60, is Ferguson, who is still highly regarded at Goodison Park for both his work in the dugout and his on-field heroics.

Romelu Lukaku, whose 68 strikes in 141 games remain unmatched, is still the man to beat. With the American only appearing in eight games, only Brian McBridge during the Premier League era can surpass his 0.48 goals per game, according to Transfermarkt.

It would be a proud moment for the club to witness someone who was raised by it rise to the top of the Premier League, and if he keeps up his current form and level of health, that moment looks certain.
