Arsenal cool interest in Everton star as Serbian forward comes back into focus

Arsenal have cooled their interest in Everton striker Dominic Calvert Lewin as they begin to explore a deal for Serbian forward Luca Jovic, according to reports.

The Gunners are in desperate need of a striker in the summer, with both first choice option Alexandre Lacazette and fringe option Eddie Nketiah out of contract in the summer and not having shown any intention of extending their deals in north London.

30-year-old Lacazette has scored just four times this season for the Gunners, though he has provided 7 assists. However, his last open play goal in the top flight was against Southampton on December 12th, showing an area that the Gunners clearly need to upgrade upon this summer.

And one of those options was thought to be Dominic Calvert Lewin, with the Everton forward a Premier League proven option to bolster Mikel Arteta’s ranks.

However, as per the Telegraph, the Gunners have cooled their interest in the Englishman as they look elsewhere for their no.9, following a less than spectacular showing for Everton this season, where injury has restricted him to just a handful of appearances.

Jovic moving back into the sights?

On the other hand, Real Madrid outcast Luca Jovic has reportedly moved back into the scope of Mikel Arteta and co., according to the Daily Express.

They report that ‘Arsenal have reportedly renewed their interest in Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic’ and that ‘Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is claimed to be convinced that Jovic can be a ‘goal machine’ for his side.’

The Serbian would be a low cost but high-risk option to lead the Gunners line, but could well become a world-beater with the right support and training. Whether he will be leaving the Bernabeu this summer is another matter, however.
