Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United should go all out to sign Everton’s star man Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The English man has been in great form this year scoring 19 goals in 32 games and has played a big part in getting Everton to where they are in the table under Carlo Ancelotti

“Listen, Dominic Calvert-Lewin for me, I love him,” Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five YouTube channel.
‘I’ve watched a lot of Everton this year and he’s one that unnerves defenders. He’s not one you want to play against week in, week out. He’s aggressive, he attacks the ball.
“I was speaking to Carlo Ancelotti earlier this year and he mentioned [Filippo] Inzaghi and said he didn’t need many chances to score goals and he scores goals in and around the six-yard box.
“I look at Calvert-Lewin this season and he’s listened to that, he’s taken that on board.
“Obviously, he seems a real good student of the game and he’s started putting that into his own game.”
“We’ve seen the rewards he’s had he’s got into the England squad by scoring loads of goals in and around the six-yard box – scoring those ugly goals,” added Ferdinand.
“I think he’d be a fantastic signing for Manchester United. It’s one out of left-field a little bit but I think he’d have a big impact.
“He’d get on the end of the things created by [Bruno] Fernandes, [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, [Mason] Greenwood etc.
