ARSENAL are reportedly battling Newcastle in the race to prise Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin away from Goodison Park.
SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this month how the Gunners had made signing either the 24-year-old or Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins their priority next year.
And Football.London have declared that the North London outfit have made the Toffees star their No1 target for 2022.
Meanwhile Manchester United were linked with a move for the ex-Sheffield United ace in July as a long-term replacement for Edinson Cavani, prior to Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival.
However he could make a shock switch to Newcastle, who have cash to splash following their Saudi-backed £300million takeover.
According to The Telegraph, the Magpies have put Calvert-Lewin on their list of targets for next summer.
They state that the England international is highly regarded by Newcastle's recruitment team.
Despite Steve Bruce's sacking at St James' Park, it is believed that he will remain a player of interest for his replacement.

The news outlet also suggests how the Toon are keen to bolster their attack to provide competition for Callum Wilson.
However they do add that they will face competition from Arsenal should they wish to sign Calvert-Lewin.
And Manchester United cannot be ruled out, with Cavani in the final year of his contract.
Manchester City are another club to keep an eye out for with Pep Guardiola yet to replace Sergio Aguero at the Etihad.
It is understood that while Everton will fight tooth and nail to keep the centre-forward, a fee of £50million could be enough to prise him away.
Calvert-Lewin banged in 16 top-flight goals last term, with none of his strikes coming from the penalty spot.
And he already has three goals from as many matches this campaign, but he hasn't featured since August 28 after picking up an injury.
