Rio Ferdinand believes that Dominic Calvert-Lewin would be a "fantastic" signing for Manchester United, as an alternative for Harry Kane and Erling Braut Haaland.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has heaped praise on Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, claiming that he would be a "fantastic" signing for the Red Devils.

The 24-year-old is enjoying his best goalscoring season in an Everton shirt, having netted 19 goals in 32 appearances for the Toffees this campaign.

Man United have been linked with Harry Kane and Erling Braut Haaland but Ferdinand believes that Calvert-Lewin would be a good alternative for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Speaking to Vibe with Five YouTube channel, the former Manchester United defender said: "Listen Dominic Calvert-Lewin for me I love him. I've watched a lot of Everton this year and he's one that unnerves defenders. He's not one you want to play against week in, week out. He's aggressive, he attacks the ball.

"I was speaking to Carlo Ancelotti earlier this year and he mentioned Inzaghi and said he didn't need many chances to score goals and he scores goals in and around the six-yard box.

"I look at Calvert-Lewin this season and he's listened to that, he's taken that on board. Obviously he seems a real good student of the game and he's started putting that into his own game.

"I think he'd be a fantastic signing for Manchester United. It's one out of left field a little bit but I think he'd have a big impact."

Calvert-Lewin has scored 51 goals in 166 appearances since his debut in 2016 for Everton, and has a contract at Goodison Park until 2025.
