Sean Dyche’s side worked to balance the books this summer and wheel and deal in the transfer market due to financial constraints.


Landing a striker was key for Everton and the club eventually splashed the cash to sign Beto from Italian Serie A side Udinese.




Beto is competing for the spot up front with Calvert-Lewin, who has been prone to suffering injuries in recent years.


Ball believes there is a clear difference between the two players as Beto likes to fight for the ball, while Calvert-Lewin prefers to create space in the box and await assists to fire.



I have been really impressed with Beto’s performances”, Ball wrote in his Liverpool Echo column.


He has only had two games but he has got something different than Dominic Calvert-Lewin.


“The way he holds the ball up, the way he fights, it is like he enjoys that a lot more.



Calvert-Lewin prefers to create space in the box and we just fire balls in there for him to attack and get his head on it – his leap is fantastic.


Beto scored ten times in Serie A with Udinese last season, but has yet to be handed a senior cap by Portugal.


The 25-year-old is likely to hope shining with Everton in the Premier League will change that.
