Joining Everton Academy from Sheffield United in the summer of 2016, Calvert-Lewin was one for the future, and it didn't take long before manager Ronald Koeman wanted to see what he might be able to do for the first team.
Described as being physically strong with good aerial presence, Calvert-Lewin has just been named in England's U20 squad, having made it into the Blades' senior squad last year following a loan spell at Northampton Town.
He went into Everton's Under-23s under David Unsworth who said: "This is an opportunity of a lifetime for him. To go from League One to the Premier League is a massive jump but he certainly has all of the attributes to make that jump, given time, hard work and the desire I know he has.”
After a few appearances from the subs bench in December 2016, including the match against Hull when he was unlucky not to score a goal that could have won the game. He was given his full Everton debut in the Premier League against Southampton but lasted barely 5 mins before he turned his ankle when tackled, and was forced off with just 11 minutes gone. It was a real blow when he would then spend the next two months on the sidelines.
But Koeman's faith in the youngster was rewarded when he returned, and scored a lovely opening goal in his first start against Hull City, with a sweet finish to a move created by Barkley's inch-perfect defense-splitting pass that Davies centred instinctively for Calvert-Lewin to slot home.
