Newcastle and Arsenal are interested in the England striker.

But Lampard, for his part, insists he wants Calvert-Lewin to stay: “He is a fantastic striker, a pedigree striker and there are simply not that many around.

“He has three years left on his contract, and I want to take this club forward. A player of Dominic's can help that - he is our player and that's it."

Lampard revealed he has been in constant dialogue with the European Championship finalist, as he has tried to nurse him back to fitness following a difficult campaign which saw Everton plunge into the bottom three, until just a week ago.

And he explained that he has heard nothing from the striker to suggest he will attempt to force a move in the summer.

“He has not said anything to me like that, he trains well, we communicate a lot and he's not said anything," he said. “I'm not silly - this is football, so I am aware of the way things can go.

“Dominic's been a big player for Everton, and Everton have been big for him in his career, so that should be the story."
