Exciting news has emerged from Portugal as Everton and Youssef Chermiti have reportedly reached a deal that will see the striker make a dream move to the English club, as relays the SW. According to reports from A Bola, the final details have been ironed out, and Chermiti is ready to sign a five-year contract with the Toffees.
The path to securing the signing of the promising striker had been relatively smooth, with Everton and Sporting already reaching an agreement. The only remaining hurdle was to finalize the personal terms with the player, and now it seems that has been successfully accomplished after a few days of negotiations.
A Bola writes that the 23-year-old striker is expected to travel to Liverpool soon to undergo his medical and officially sign his contract with Everton. The Toffees are reportedly splashing out an initial fee of €12.5 million for Chermiti, with potential add-ons that could make the deal reach €15 million. Furthermore, Sporting will retain 20% of any future transfer fee, securing a sell-on clause in the agreement.
The negotiation between the player and Everton had taken some time to be resolved, leading to speculation in the Portuguese media. Throughout the week, reports indicated that a deal between the clubs had been reached, which eventually led to Chermiti not participating in the friendly match between Everton and Sporting.
For the talented striker, the move to Everton represents a dream come true. Chermiti was promoted to Sporting’s first team earlier this year, and now, in a whirlwind of events, he finds himself on the verge of realizing his ambitions with a big move to the Premier League.
As Chermiti prepares to embark on this new chapter in his career, Everton fans are eagerly anticipating his arrival and hoping that his presence will bolster the team’s attacking options. With his potential and the club’s investment, all eyes will be on the young striker to make a significant impact at Goodison Park in the seasons to come.
