Manchester United have enjoyed a decent campaign and made some encouraging progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

At this point of time, they sit at second in the Premier League table and are in the semi-finals of the Europa League, where they will take on AS Roma. As a result, there is a possibility that the Red Devils could finish the season with some silverware, something that they have not done under Solskjaer yet.

But the progress should not stop there. The ultimate aim of the club will surely be to return to the top of English football and challenge for the Champions League, neither of which they have done since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

As a result, they are expected to strengthen further in the upcoming summer transfer window. And one position that they might try to sign reinforcements in is at striker.

Manchester United have reportedly made an offer for Dominic Calvert-Lewin

The Red Devils have been linked with the likes of Erling Haaland and Harry Kane in recent months but it looks like it is the Everton striker that they have made an approach for.

As reported by Stretty News, Manchester United made an offer to Everton for Calvert-Lewin. But the Toffees are believed to be looking for a transfer fee of around £80 million.

It is not hard to understand why that kind of a transfer fee would be steep in the present financial climate. But even then, it is lower than what they might have to shell out to sign either Haaland or Kane, both of whom are rated at well over £100 million.

Calvert-Lewin has been in brilliant form for Everton this season. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 19 goals and provided 4 assists in 33 appearances across all competitions. And he is the type of striker that not many defences would like to play against.
