Several Premier League sides including West Ham and Chelsea had been in the hunt for the Brazilian winger while AC Milan also expressed an interest.

"I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful".

The Merseyside club, who appointed Portuguese manager Marco Silva during the close-season, could add a fourth deadline day signing after the Liverpool Echo reported they had submitted a deal sheet in the hope of completing paperwork for a loan for Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma.
