The striker, who turns 23 later this month, has broken out this season as a much-needed goalscorer for the Toffees and has 15 goals to his name in all competitions so far.
He agreed a new deal today that ties him to the club until 2025.
“This is a very proud day," he told evertontv. "It has been enjoyable for me since the start at Everton and I am enjoying every day coming into training and every minute on the football pitch.
“The turnaround we have had since December is fantastic and the belief in ourselves we are back up there and can compete with the best is well and truly there.
“And with a man like Carlo leading the ship it makes it easier for us to believe in the process."

Carlo referenced this possibility in his presser this morning

Both class now, both young, both improving. Other teams and the media dont know yet just how good these two lads are and how central the will be to Evertons renaissance under Carlo Ancelloti.

He has all the tools to be exceptional, he just needs a little time... remember that, please.

Both class now, still improving, and will be influential in getting the club back challenging for everything.
Our future looks brighter than it has for a long time.

I may add that my success rate of forecasting the future of talented young men isn't the best. When The Beatles burst onto the scene in 1962, I said "Give them 18 months and nobody will remember them". I still consider that's my claim to fame. In defence, I had little interest in music at that time, football in general and Everton FC in particular, dominated my life... my 'Young Lady' says, "What's new?"
14 Posted 06/03/2020 at 19:09:58
We have now tied three youngsters to long-term contracts, and it's very pleasing to hear Ancelotti say that the spine of the team is okay, and he's definitely here to begin challenging for the Champions League places next season!
15 Posted 06/03/2020 at 19:15:51
Here's a video interview of him about extending his contract.
Very eloquent. Very focussed. Very driven. Very much aware of the history behind the Number 9 shirt at Everton.
He's a smashing lad.

18 Posted 06/03/2020 at 19:29:24
To me, he is one of the most important players in the team and still improving. Definitely in the running for Player of the Season and, with 10 games to play, a few more goals might clinch that for him, to go with his first few England caps.

Hi Dave  I know that you have championed Dominic when doubters [including myself] were less enamoured. I feel on reflection that many were expecting more than the lad could deliver, due to the fact that he was, in the main, operating in a zone where goals were nigh impossible. You'll have to invent a reason for another get-together.

Calvert-Lewin works hard and is improving, but there's signs of maturity, but for me taking the tap-in and decision-making require honing, but his link-up play, and drive are first class.
For me, a playmaker centre-mid, right-back, and centre-back are must needs, but Marcel will have his blueprint.
Now for Chelsea...
29 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:15:28
Hopefully Mr Ancelotti will gather all of the loanees in over the summer and see just what we have there. Don't be surprised if Bolasie comes back into the fold...
30 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:27:57
Those with much more experience than any of us have seen fit to give him a new contract. I hope he scores the winner on Sunday.
31 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:34:46
32 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:36:26
Dave #16, agreed.
33 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:37:22
If he can maintain that but improve his own scoring, we really will have a player the whole world will want.
34 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:38:18
35 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:40:02
I think he is going to the very top. His finishing and positioning needs work but his work rate, touch, aerial ability are first rate. We are lucky to have him (at an outlay of £1.5M) and I wish people could see it and get behind him, FFS. I'm over the moon.
36 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:44:07
37 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:44:30
Calvert-Lewin started to improve when Dunc started playing with two up front! I don't think it's all down to Ancelotti?
38 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:45:08
Last season, he had a run where he terrorised teams but couldn't score. Now, he is doing both. I think he has 25 goals a season in him.
Opposition defenders will think long and hard about how to handle him and that says a great deal.
I felt quite emotional when I saw the news and the comment about Carlo – and it's not the Timmy Taylor's...
39 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:45:11
You are wrong. Just my opinion.
40 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:47:43
I've thought the exact same thing about him being similar to Sheringham in terms of his reading of the game, movement etc. Now the goals are coming too which is what he was previously lacking.
41 Posted 06/03/2020 at 20:56:08
Richarlison however, l never liked seeing him defending and chasing back down the wing. I'd rather he plays up top and through the middle. I think if we do keep this formation, it's curtains for Sigurdsson.
Looking more likely we need another top class centre-midfielder and right-winger. Maybe even Iwobi will come good... we live in hope!

Tottenham, Everton battle to sign Celtic's Edouard The French Under-21 international has been in electric form at Parkhead and the Glasgow giants, currently chasing a 10th consecutive league title, have been looking to secure the striker to a new deal. However, they also know that Edouard is a man in demand and Everton in particular have been regular visitors, sending scouts to consecutive games against Kilmarnock and FC Copenhagen. Both Everton and Spurs would have to part with £30m to sign a player whose former club Paris Saint-Germain inserted a huge sell-on clause into any future deal. Edouard has scored 61 goals in 123 games and could prove the perfect partner for Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has been offered a new and improved contract.
Everton have been sending scouts to watch Celtic sensation Odsonne Edouard, reports the Daily Mail, and the Toffees could battle it out with Spurs for the striker's services.

So how about it, you Glasgow Blues? Is this kid worth £30 million?
47 Posted 06/03/2020 at 21:33:52
I still think Tom Davies at 22 can be a great player for us. Sometimes it can be underestimated how players develop during these vital years.
Moise Kean has a great physical presence at just 20 years of age. Looking forward to seeing him bully a few premier league centre halves in the coming couple of seasons. Just like Dominic is starting to do now.
48 Posted 06/03/2020 at 21:42:43
I've been mentioning Edouard for a while now. Young lad, pacy, tall. He can score goals but his all-round play is excellent.
Very quick feet and very good bringing others into play. These days, £ 30 million would be a snip when you hear what other strikers are being quoted at.
If it went pear-shaped, we'd always get our money back!
Mind you, I was saying for ages we should have gone for John McGinn when at Hibs. We could have got him for a song. If Villa go down, he'll go for big money.
Yes, at £30 million, Edouard would we'll be worth a serious look at.

I noticed he was taking very highly of Ferguson. How much work they had been doing together behind the scenes.
Ferguson seems like he knows what he's doing in both coaching and management.
Hopefully the good work will continue.
Well done, Dom!

However, English clubs signing strikers from Scotland has been an entertaining business throughout my lifetime. Some wonderful players have made the journey South, but there have also been quite a few disappointments.
Calvert-Lewin has always reminded me of the young Graeme Sharp. Let's hope he can match Sharpy's medal collection.
Scotland can be an unpredictable place. You should visit it again sometime!
56 Posted 06/03/2020 at 22:50:45
Holgate, and now Calvert-Lewin, plus a 1-year extension for Baines. Hello Championship.
Honestly - what are we likely to win by giving inflated contracts to Championship standard players? We should have binned these 2 at 19 years old when it was obvious they wouldn't make it.
I blame Unsworth and Kenwright. They both obviously convinced Kenwright that they were true Evertonions and they could join Uncle Bill's Boys Pen. As for Unsworth, he obviously prioritised U23 league success when he had them both a couple of years ago. He should have left them and played a load of 17-year-olds. We'll never get anyone progressing by playing 20-year-olds.

However, with Tosun now crocked and Niasse seemingly never in favour, it is vital another class striker is procured if this team are to progress next season.

In other news, what's the betting Everton end up having to play the Goodison derby behind closed doors due to Coronavirus measures, removing a massive factor in us hopefully finally, finally getting a win over the shite...?!

66 Posted 07/03/2020 at 02:19:06
If we show patience with young players with potential, they will eventually come good. Let's get off Iwobi's back – same with Tom Davies.
67 Posted 07/03/2020 at 02:38:59
68 Posted 07/03/2020 at 02:59:12
We'd obviously prefer to bring through local lads, but these two have faced similar issues to the locals that went before. Showed potential, written off by some. The fact is, these two stuck with it when I'm sure they had chances to get out.
Calvert-Lewin has worked his plums off for us. He's been in all sorts of positions, been given some thankless jobs to do, and just kept on coming back for more.
There's plenty to improve on for him, and I still feel his goalscoring record at the moment has a huge slice of luck about it, but he's more than earned that bit of luck.
Now let's see what happens when he goes a few games without a goal. Will he get patience? I hope so, there's just something about his attitude that I think is top class.
69 Posted 07/03/2020 at 05:03:35
John 13, So it is not just Everton that we have in common. I also have been pleasantly amazed at what The Beatles became. I did see them at the Cavern but I only gave them a year. Actually I was disappointed at the time because none of them were footie fans. In my miind, there was something wrong with someone who didn't care about football.
Looking forward to meeting up with John when we fly home for the derby. See you at the Central at 12:00 noon on St Paddy's Day. Hope for a win the day before. CYOB

Getting hopeless with days and times these days... I had it in my head it was the Saturday or the Sunday! I do intend to go over to Liverpool to meet you and some of the others I know from the TW Get-Togethers.
73 Posted 07/03/2020 at 07:54:06
One thing Everton must do is sign another centre-forward, and if this young kid from Celtic is good – take him.
I'd have sooner got the other one who used to play for Fulham, Dembele, because he always looked like a top player. This has got to be what we are after now, top players, and definitely another forward, considering we now play two up-front!!
74 Posted 07/03/2020 at 08:13:07
He doesn't have the same ability to strike the ball or nastiness though. However, Calvert-Lewin does have more speed and a natural physicality. Like Sharp, he may fluctuate between prolific and less prolific seasons.
But his progress has been impressive and linked to three things. The more aggressive and quicker style of play, the confidence Dunc and then Carlo have in him, and the order to play within the width of the box. A potential gem.
75 Posted 07/03/2020 at 08:36:42
I hope “hobbled by a goat” isn't a euphemism for something... er, unsavoury.
76 Posted 07/03/2020 at 09:15:08
After all the money spent, it's good to see that the buys from the ‘bargain bin' a few years back are bearing fruit. Let's hope he keeps developing; he admits there is lots to do and he is under the right stewardship. He could well hit 20 goals this season, the key is to maintain this.
I also had a dream that he scores 2 tomorrow and then Kean comes on to get a late winner to make it 3-2. We also missed a penalty. I might have a rare bet on it!
77 Posted 07/03/2020 at 09:19:59
78 Posted 07/03/2020 at 09:56:21
Defenders just don't know how to contain them two. Between them, they have it all: athletes, physical strength, decent touch, speed, aerial ability, desire, and still very young. The combination cannot be coped with, and would anyone bet their house on at least one of them not scoring in every single game?
If Carlo can make us a 'lean mean Italian defensive machine' by one or two strategic quality signings, we will have one of the most dangerous teams in the Premier League for the foreseeable future. Because, if we can keep it tight defensively there is always one or two goals for us each game.
At last, 'top 4 challenge' can be mentioned without it just being a pipe dream.
79 Posted 07/03/2020 at 10:09:15
Why didn't Calvert-Lewin shine at Anfield against Liverpool's kids? Why have only five teams conceded more goals than an Everton defence that includes Mason Holgate? They are not good enough and wouldn't get into the first eleven of the top sides.
We will be 13th in the Premier League after today's games and out of all cups by early January, yet we reward players for that.
80 Posted 07/03/2020 at 11:36:11
81 Posted 07/03/2020 at 11:39:53
Are some people on here actually talking about him becoming an Everton great?? Not in my lifetime.
82 Posted 07/03/2020 at 11:50:15
83 Posted 07/03/2020 at 11:53:06
84 Posted 07/03/2020 at 12:05:01
I would hope that, in the summer we can bring in a couple of top-class midfield players, and hopefully move on some of our deadwood, although that will take all of Brands's skills to achieve this.
85 Posted 07/03/2020 at 12:06:31
Comparing to Stones and Lukaku – who have probably peaked at a younger age – I think Calvert-Lewin and Holgate can go on to be better players than both over the next 5 years of their respective careers. Both hungrier, seem more humble, and work harder on the pitch.
Glad we have them both and good luck to them
86 Posted 07/03/2020 at 12:36:40
Oh wait, hang on a minute... Dominic and Mason, you might as well stay because your manager, one of the most respected and successful managers in world football, a manager who has forgotten more about football than some on here will ever know, thinks you have the potential to achieve things at Everton FC.
I know who I would trust here, and it's not the "so-called" experts on TW.
87 Posted 07/03/2020 at 12:49:24
Too many happy clappers on here that settle for mediocrity, that's why we have a small-club mentality.
88 Posted 07/03/2020 at 13:04:46
Sadio Mane's best season for Southampton yielded 11 goals (less than Calvert-Lewin has so far this term). The same club conceded plenty of goals with Van Dijk in their defence. It didn't stop Liverpool's recruitment team shelling out over £100m for the two of them, and they look quite good, I think.
Happy to concede that there are better judges of professional players than me – and I strongly suspect that Carlo is one of them.
89 Posted 07/03/2020 at 13:17:39
Better strikers who we can afford and who would be prepared to join us? I'm a stats and transfer nerd and I'm struggling to think of any. Look at how much you have to pay for crap like Tosun and Joelinton and Batshuayi.
For the time being, we're better focussing on the real areas of weakness within the side. Calvert-Lewin is not one of the weaknesses. He's a strength.
90 Posted 07/03/2020 at 13:25:08
Seen these stories on the club site, Carlo's thoughts on Mason and Dom?
'Dominic can become one fo the best strikers in Europe.'
'Mason can go all the way and is a potential future Everton captain'
Like you Rob, for some reason I give more weight to Carlo's assessment of the two players than some on here. I wonder why..?

He's getting better every game. Fantastic work rate and attitude and must be a nightmare to play against.
Yes, he could do with more goals... but so could every player.
96 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:01:46
Behind the likes of who, ffs???
97 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:02:50
Just a few players I have heard described as “mediocre” (or far worse) by certain Evertonians.
98 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:07:11
99 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:14:20
I have also heard that Cadamarteri, Jeffers, Rodwell, Branch, McFadden etc were all going to be Everton Greats.
100 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:23:28
With the exception of Rooney, I've never felt confident about predicting the future of any young player, and of course Calvert-Lewin isn't in the Aguero bracket... few are... but the improvement in his all-round game is amazing.
He's a much safer bet for next season than an expensive import from another league. I think defenders hate playing against him and don't see that changing.
Midfield is where we need to invest.
101 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:31:22
The "Championship player" has had the shackles of stupid management removed and is impressing just about everyone. I say just about, because it must be really embarrassing for those who screamed for us to get rid to see him worth fifty times more than we paid for him.
Big Dunc gave him a chance to show what he can do. Ancelotti is continuing to develop him and has repeatedly expressed how highly he rates him.
If the club listened to the fools who wanted to get rid before he could realise his potential, they would now be watching some other club reap the rewards. They didn't listen then... Why on earth would anybody listen now?
102 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:33:37
I'll play along!
Vardy and Ings are ahead of him. Not sure it matters who is ahead of him though?
It's a fact that I think your opinion is wrong – but that's just my opinion!
103 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:39:33
However, of those you mention, I only thought Jack Rodwell had the potential to be top class. And I suspect once he got his big bucks from his transfer to Man City, it was “job done” for him.
I think Calvert-Lewin and Holgate have got something about them, a bit of fight, and they will continue to improve.
104 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:50:34
Aubameyang 17 goals (130 minutes / goal)
Salah 16 goals (140 minutes / goal)
Aguero 16 goals (84 minutes / goal)
Ings 15 goals (128 minutes / goal)
Mane 14 goals (149 minutes / goal)
Rashford 14 goals (134 minutes / goal)
Calvert-Lewin, Jiminez and Tammy Abraham all have 13 goals, but Calvert-Lewin has a better minutes / goal.
So, amazingly, Calvert-Lewin is only 4 (yes four) goals behind the current Premier League leading goalscorer. A chance, although highly unlikely, he could end up in the top three come the end of the season. FFS, Geoff, give the lad some credit.
105 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:51:21
These boys are our future and not just because of their obvious talents. All 3 of these lads are scrappers and have got some kahunas about them.
You watch the next time it kicks off during a game. Whilst some of our elder statesmen pick their noses and turn the other way, Dominic is right in the thick of things. Usually just behind our next Captain, Mason Holgate.
Run, run wherever you may be.
106 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:54:21
107 Posted 07/03/2020 at 14:56:32
Take a bow, sir. Youve been calling this one for what? A couple of years?
Id add that patience is needed for at least two more youngsters on top of the two weve signed this week: Moise Kean and Tom Davies.
Patience pays dividends. Weve got two nailed down. Now let the other two come along at their pace, and we have a nucleus of youngsters that would scare the bajeezuz out of any opponent we face.
108 Posted 07/03/2020 at 15:01:54
Take a bow indeed.
I look at Dominic's challenge on Luke Shaw last week, or before that against Man City on Fernandinho, and you can just tell our number 9 has a nasty side to him and that is fine by me.
Let's be honest, we probably haven't had a proper snide playing for us since Gareth Barry.
Keep up the good work, Dominic.
109 Posted 07/03/2020 at 15:09:06
On top of that, he works like a Trojan for the team relentlessly, every single time he plays. The lad is consistent. Total quality.
The stubborn formations and tactics of Marco Silva should be scratched when looking at the stats. It wasn't playing to Calvert-Lewin's or Richarlison's strengths.
110 Posted 07/03/2020 at 15:26:54
Quite right praising Duncan for doing what was obvious to many of us; playing one up front is not suited to the current Everton players – or indeed its supporters.
Whether the recently re-signed youngsters will continue to improve and play consistently well over a full season is now in their own hands.
Carlo is probably the first manager we've had this century who actually believes in his squad and sets objectives that may not be achievable but I'd rather have that than the previous mantras of 'hoping we do something' rather than 'we are able to do something'.
Ancellotti believes that, if he can add two or three quality players to his current squad, Everton can challenge for a Champions League berth next season.
Interestingly, Uefa is considering adapting its Financial Fair Play regulations:
President Aleksander Ceferin said Tuesday, as Manchester City take their fight to overturn a ban from the Champions League for breaching the rules to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
"It is too early to say how it will look in the future but we are thinking about it and we will probably have to adapt it," the Slovenian Ceferin said at a press conference after the UEFA Congress in Amsterdam.
"It was very successful as a system, there are almost no losses in European football any more, but now we will probably have to adapt to different times."
Let's hope that, for once, all of the cards fall into place before the start of next season.

All the successful clubs have 11 arseholes always on at the referee, always wearing down the opposition mentally. We need more arseholes at Everton.

Football is great. I agree with Peter that everyone's opinion should always count the same, but it's easy to be dismissive, and it usually achieves nothing, especially when that criticism just consists of “He's fucking shite!”
They all have balls, that is a very, very valid point, Robert, especially because you need loads of hydrollics if you are a young kid trying to come through at Everton.

Yes, I go as much as work allows me to and I see a player with no composure whatsoever in front of goal, a player who does not glide past his man and slot it in the corner, a player who has never taken a ball down on the edge of the area and curled one into the top corner, a player who has managed to score a few this season yes, but I do not see the class I want at Everton.
Maybe I want the best and it looks like I am in the minority. And then we have the clairvoyance of others who have seen the rise to greatness of our new saviour...

As said by many supporters, we need to support our homegrown younger players. Calvert-Lewin and Holgate have demonstrated their loyalty in a cut-throat era.
For ToffeeWebbers. I am flying home from Canada with my son John Everton and my son-in-law for a winning derby. I will be meeting John McFarlane at the Central Hotel at 12:00 Noon on Tuesday March 17, hopefully to talk about our win. Should be interesting as we have only met through ToffeeWeb and never in person.

Since Silva's departure, Calvert-Lewin looks a real threat. I thought at the end of last season he really stepped up his physical side, making life difficult for the opposition but wasn't scoring.
Playing alongside Richarlison, who is (in my opinion) our best player by some distance, has helped him out.
He needs to develop his finishing to be classed in the same bracket as Harry Kane but he is improving year on year.
Let's hope that either Kean steps up or another quality forward is found during the summer.

ToffeeWeb will be buzzing about which players we will sign and how many trophies we will be able to buy. Stranger things have happened... so let's see how Man City get on with their court case.
122 Posted 07/03/2020 at 18:52:10
If Calvert-Lewin ever moves away, then it will be to one of the teams at the top — not one that is below us.
123 Posted 07/03/2020 at 19:31:07
It's great that he's doing so well now, and I think, besides Ancelotti and Ferguson, that Silva deserves a bit of credit for giving him game time. It's not easy bringing through an English striker when you can buy someone from abroad at less risk to your own job as manager.
For those criticising him, or the investment in him, it's true that he can get better. The fact that all the top clubs are out for him now shows that it's beginning to look a lot more like he will. I think if you're honest with yourself, he could quite comfortably spend the rest of his career playing at a mid-level Premier League side, and the fans of whatever club that was would be more than happy with his performances.
Whilst it's good that we want the best for the club, I don't think that there's a club in the land that wouldn't have him in their squad. Also, it must be personally satisfying to Calvert-Lewin that we're spending a lot more time talking about him than we are about Moise Kean or whoever we are being linked with at the minute. If I was him, I'd probably be happier about that than the new deal. Not saying all strikers are selfish, but it doesn't hurt if they are a bit like that on the pitch.

It would be great if you could attend the get together, and to tell the truth I think that John would be delighted if one or two more were able to attend.
Hi Ajay , I've learned from my 'Beatle's Debacle' I now travel to matches with hope rather than expectations, when it comes to predictions I regard myself as the most successful failure.
Hi Geoff  and various posts, I, along with many others] have made it quite clear that I don't, in your words, accept mediocrity, I endure it because I don't have any choice.
Hi John [aka] Patrick, 110], you appear to have mellowed a little, you are quite right to give credit to Duncan Ferguson for the part he has played in the resurgence of the team. It was not long ago that some on this site were ridiculing him, suggesting that rather than playing a part in the coaching duties, he was responsible for setting out the 'cones'. If you're available to attend the meeting at the Central Hotel, it would be nice to recall our times in the Everton Travel Club.
Hi John  I'm looking forward to meeting up with you, your son, and your son-in-law, I will e-mail you in the next couple of days.

The wind was causing havoc around College Road, but a canny centre forward scored the only goal. I managed to have a chat with the ref about an offside decision, and with Marine's president. Plus a mate from 50 years ago. You don't get that at Goodison. Great afternoon.
129 Posted 08/03/2020 at 00:59:09
I'm still not sure that he is the answer. But I'm not sure we can attract whoever is the answer. Hence this represents excellent news as I believe Calvert-Lewin will continue to improve.
Well done, lad.
130 Posted 08/03/2020 at 05:53:41
I noticed he was talking very highly of Ferguson. How much work they had been doing together behind the scenes. Ferguson seems like he knows what he's doing in both coaching and management. Hopefully the good work will continue.
Well done, Dom.
131 Posted 08/03/2020 at 11:03:02
I am not talking from experience here, perhaps someone from the Principality can confirm, it might be harder to get a goat's back legs in your wellies than a sheep. Just a thought.
132 Posted 08/03/2020 at 13:14:05
He once scored a goal with an assist by Ademola Lookman, a real Everton goal of quality and beauty.
Alas, Lookman seemingly has other issues, he won't come good it appears, not at Leipzig either, as it now stands.
I've always been puzzled by Dom not breaking through properly. It's not by his lack of trying.
Possibly slightly mishandled by Marco Silva, possibly not being able to handle the pressure?
Whatever, he's improving this season, both Carlo and Dunc rate him. This must mean something, surely?
I for one am pleased with the new contract, well deserved, and let's hope he improves futher.
