Newcastle United were keen on signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin from Everton this summer but had to pull out thanks to huge demands from the Toffees. The Magpies enjoyed a decent enough summer in which they kept their best players and managed to make big money signings like Sven Botman and Alexander Isak.
