Finance expert makes £60m Everton-FFP claim after what happened in January


Everton could look to use the funds generated from Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s sale to offset Financial Fair Pay restrictions.

That’s according to Dr Dan Plumley who claims that the Toffees may also reinvest that money to strengthen the team.

The England international is Everton’s biggest financial asset and has been subject to transfer interest throughout the January transfer window.

Ahead of deadline day, The Daily Mail reported that Arsenal were looking to sign him after missing out on Dusan Vlahovic.

It is understood that they will have to shell out £60million if they are to tempt the Toffees to let go of him.

Discussing the FFP ramifications of the sale, the Sheffield Hallam University expert said, “Calvert-Lewin will be off the wage bill so there will be cash reduction there.

“It again comes down to the benefits and the risks.

“If you do lose somebody who’s getting you goals in the last two seasons, then does that hurt you in the short term?

“Relegation is also obviously an issue for Everton at the moment.

“That’s the trade off for Everton really, do they use it to offset FFP or to go back in the transfer market if they do sell Calvert-Lewin.“
