Dominic Calvert-Lewin has said that he wants to become Everton’s ‘main man’ up front after enjoying a decent season for the Toffees.
The 22-year-old has featured in 30 of Everton‘s 32 league games this season, scoring six goals and laying on one assist.
“My target from a young boy is to try and reach as far as possible and achieve as much as I possibly can,” he told Sky Sports.
“Goals are going to get me to where I want to be and I want to score goals for Everton at the moment, so my goal now is to get Everton as high up as possible and to be the main man here.
“Hopefully everyone at the club, and the fans aspiring to a club this size know that we should be higher up the table and I think it’s coming. It’s a slow process and it’s coming but I want to be a part of that.”
The Sheffield United academy product has started all five of Everton’s last five league games, but he is well aware that he can’t rest on his laurels with the Toffees capable of splashing the cash on a potential alternative.
“It’s been my most consistent run and it couldn’t have really come at a better time,” he continued.
“It is my time to show what I’m capable of. I’ve set the bar pretty well in the last five games that I’ve played in.
“It’s an audition in the Premier League at a club like Everton. They are always going to be linked with one of the top strikers in the summer so you have to get better.
“Every season you have to get better. It’s how you can deal with that even when perhaps my performances haven’t shown my full capability.
“I’ve never stopped believing that I can be that man and as long as I can maintain that belief and back myself I’m confident I can be that.”
