Another player set for Everton medical today as transfer edges closer

Youssef Chermiti will undergo his Everton medical on Wednesday (9 August) ahead of a £14.9m move to Goodison Park, reports Alan Myers.

Writing on his personal Twitter account (9 August), the Sky Sports reporter says the Portuguese striker will finally undergo his medical tests with the Toffees after all terms were agreed for a transfer.

Chermiti will become the third signing of the summer after Arnaut Danjuma joined on a season-long loan from Villarreal, while Ashley Young signed on a free transfer after leaving Aston Villa.View Tweet

About time

It’s been a long time coming that this deal progressed and many fans were beginning to wonder if the player or club had got cold feet about it.

A deal was agreed almost two weeks ago between Everton and Sporting CP but the player took his time to agree personal terms for the transfer.

But now all things are sealed and a medical will happen, with the hope that Chermiti will be available for the Toffees opening Premier League game of the season when they face Fulham on Saturday (12 August).

At 19-years-old and with minimal first-team experience it’s unlikely that expectations will be too high for the player at Goodison among fans, but it’s important that Sean Dyche is getting in someone he wants and the club has been boosted in their attacking numbers with his arrival.

Getting it done before the season was important too, and now attentions can turn to the next person to come through the door.
